Cutting Room for July 13

  • Although they must be using Andy Rooney’s bedtime as the threshold by considering 8 p.m. to be “late,” the Joslyn Art Museum’s “Late ‘Til 8” extended evening hours will feature 3 documentaries presented in collaboration with the POV series from PBS (provided the GOP hasn’t made PBS DOA by that ETA). The three documentaries will focus on different perspectives regarding the American West, and the screenings are at 6 p.m. and are free with regular museum admission. For more info, including the film lineup, head to joslyn.org. The only thing more cultured than watching documentaries in a museum is bacteria.

  • This is a friendly reminder that the 2012 Omaha Film Festival (omahafilmfestival.org) is 9 months away. So if you want to have a baby on the red carpet, I’d hurry up and conceive it. If you’re just looking to enter a film, remember that the early entry deadline has already passed, so no worms for you, but you still can hit the regular deadline of Sept 9 or the late deadline of November 11. Help out the festival by heading to their site and filling out a handy survey and by writing the official dates of the seventh annual festival (March 7-11, 2012) in blood on your wall. I’d suggest pen on a calendar but that’s just not dramatic enough.

  • Marcus Theatres (marcustheatres.com) think that kids rule, which is news to frustrated parents. In this case, they’re actually referring to their annual Summer Film Series called “Kids Rule,” which lets parents take their suddenly school-less children to 10 a.m. screenings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings through August 11. The 20 Grand Theatre will be participating, and the list of films is now up on the site. Unsurprisingly, that list does not include The Hangover Part II, despite my best efforts.
