Early September must-sees

August 30, 2013

With the Passport Series coming up, and other distractions, we're a little late in bringing you the September calendar. We apologize. We've got some great things early in the month that you you shouldn't miss, though:

The first Passport film. Wednesday & Thursday, Sept. 4 & 5 @ 6:30.
"The film of the year. An enigmatic fusion of contemporary absurdist comedy and luscious period romance. The most romantic thing I've seen in forever."
—Guy Lodge, VARIETY
We're really looking forward to this one.

The Harder They Come
Thursday, September 5 @ 9:30pm.
(dir. Perry Henzell, 120 min.)

Two weeks prior to Jimmy Cliff’s show at Roots & Blues, we bring you a restored & remastered version of this cult classic. The first full-length film shot in Jamaica with a full Jamaican cast and director, The Harder They Come tells the story of a young country boy who moves to Kingston to make a living as a singer. The struggles of his  life are accompanied by possibly the best soundtrack of the 70s, featuring outstanding reggae acts, including Toots and the Maytals, Desmond Dekker and, of course, Cliff himself.

The Attack
Monday, September 9 @ 6:30pm. FREE!
This is part of the public library’s One Read program.
An Arab surgeon living in Tel Aviv discovers a dark secret about his wife in the aftermath of a suicide bombing. Based on a novel by Yasmina Khadra.
A discussion will follow the film.

Bitchin Bajas Present Bitchitronics Live
September 11 @ 10pm. Watch crystals grow on screen while Cooper Crain and friends melt your mind with their psych-rock.
