Last weekend, I went to Street Food Cinema’s screening of Stand By Me, and watched Corey Feldman’s band open for the movie. I have no pictures to prove to you that I was there, watching Corey Feldman bust his MJ moves for two full hours. But I was there, it did happen, and I will never forget it. It was like an episode of the Twilight Zone set in the entertainment industry of the ’80s.
It’s going to be hot this weekend! Summer is making itself known.

Did you know it’s Marilyn Monroe’s birthday? Celebrate by seeing her play a vapid ditz in Some Like It Hot. It’s a fun movie, and she’s totally magnetic. But damn it, Marilyn the woman was smart! And interesting! I wish we could see the behind-the-scenes. Anyway, she, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis star in the Billy Wilder comedy classic that has two men disguising themselves as women to join an all girls jazz band and hide from the mob. Marilyn plays the drop dead gorgeous singer who tempts them to give up their disguises, in her “most sizzling role”. DJ David Holmes Spins before and after the movie. Bring blankets, drinks and picnic dinners. As a courtesy to other moviegoers: NO TALL CHAIRS.
$12 tickets available at gate
