Eklektikos Arts Calendar 3.18.22

Eklektikos host John Aielli gives you his picks for this weekend and beyond

The Paramount Theatre – Cha Cha Real Smooth

Friday, March 18, 2022 at 7:30 PM CST

“Recent college graduate Andrew, stuck back at home with his family and working as a party-starter for bar and bat mitzvahs, strikes up a unique friendship with a young mom and her teenage daughter.”

The Paramount Theatre – Mickey: The Story of a Mouse

Saturday, March 19, 2022 at 12 PM CST

“Mickey Mouse is one of the most enduring symbols in our history. This film explores Mickey’s significance, getting to the core of what Mickey’s cultural impact says about each of us and about our world.”

The Paramount Theatre – Kenny G

Monday, March 21, 2022 at 8 PM CST

“The sound of Kenny G’s saxophone is as iconic as his curly coif; indeed, both are instantly recognizable. His four-decade body of work is a vision of jazz that helped launch a musical genre. As a new, critically-acclaimed HBO documentary, Listening to Kenny G, humorously proves: it’s now cool to not only be Kenny G, but admit you’re a fan.”

AFS Cinema – Goodbye, Dragon Inn

Sunday, March 20, 2022 at 1:15 PM CST

“With enormous economy and restraint Tsai Ming-Liang depicts the final screening in a Taiwanese Cinema— the film on screen is King Hu’s DRAGON INN—and the experiences and impressions of the few people who attend it. A widely praised example of “slow cinema.” Noted director Apichatpong Weerasethakul has called GOODBYE, DRAGON INN “the greatest film of the last 125 years.””

AFS Cinema – The Worst Person in the World

March 18-24 2022, times vary

“Director Joachim Trier returns with another modern twist on a classically constructed character portrait of contemporary life in Oslo. Chronicling four years in the life of Julie, THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD examines one woman’s quest for love and meaning in the modern world. Fluidly told in twelve chapters, the film features a breakout performance by Cannes Best Actress winner Renate Reinsve as she explores new professional avenues and embarks on relationships with two very different men (Anders Danielsen Lie and Herbert Nordrum) in her search for happiness and identity.  Nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best International Feature, THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD marks the conclusion of Trier’s Oslo Trilogy.”

AFS Cinema – National Evening of Science on Screen®: Dope is Death

Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at 7 PM CST

“In the 1970s, as drug addiction ravaged New York City, an extraordinary joint venture between the Black Panthers and Young Lords brought acupuncture detoxification to community clinics, under the leadership of Dr. Mutulu Shakur—Tupac Shakur’s stepfather. This new doc examines the legacy of this program. For this screening we will be joined by medical and natural health experts for a special panel about the issues raised in the film. Science on Screen® is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.”
