Cutting Room for September 28

  • Your ears do so much for you without complaining. The least you can do is treat them to Film Streams’ upcoming Silents in Concert series at the Ruth Sokolof Theater. Now, don’t let the oxymoron-itude of “silent concerts” freak you out. Starting on Tuesday, Oct 4 at 7 pm, the Alloy Orchestra will perform new music to a series of their favorite silent short films. This will be followed on Friday, Oct 21 at 7 pm by a screening of Nosferatu with live music by Others, a band composed of Todd Fink (The Faint), Orenda Fink (Azure Ray) and Ben Brodin (Before the Toast and Tea). There are four other films in the series that lasts through December, so hit up filmstreams.org for more info. If you don’t, your ears may use their collective bargaining powers to strike and drop those sunglasses right off your face.
  • Film Streams is also throwing a party for a dirty girl. Wait. That should read Film Streams is throwing a party for Dirty Girl, a comedy directed by Abe Sylvia. On Oct 17 at 7 p.m. the Ruth Sokolof Theater will host Sylvia for a Q&A along with producer Jana Edelbaum and actor Nicholas D’Agosto, a native Omahan! There will be chow and booze provided by Omaha Steaks and Upstream Brewing Company. Now this is one Dirty Girl celebration everyone can get behind.
  • Blake Lively has been offered the lead in the upcoming movie version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Given her extensive talent, I can only assume she’ll be playing the role of one of the “ands.”
