The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing It Happened One Night starting at 8 p.m. The Eastman House calendar puts things concicely: "a runaway heiress (Claudette Colbert) joins forces with a tough-talking newspaper man (Clark Gable) in a Capra classic that set a new standard for screwball comedies and swept up the top five Oscars®: Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, and Screenplay."

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Madam Satan starting at 7 p.m. Once again, the lyrical Eastman House calendar says it all: "an extravagantly designed and positively loopy pre-code musical, Madam Satan is legendary director DeMille's moralistic yet lighthearted story of infidelity among the filthy rich."

This page is Jason Olshefsky's list of things to do in Rochester, NY and the surrounding region (including nearby towns Irondequoit, Webster, Penfield, Pittsford, Victor, Henrietta, Gates, Chili, Greece, and Charlotte, and occasionally other places in Monroe County and the Western New York region.) It is updated every week with daily listings for entertainment, activities, performances, movies, music, bands, comedy, improv, poetry, storytelling, lectures, discussions, debates, theater, plays, and generally fun things to do.
Music events are usually original bands with occasional cover bands and DJ's with musical styles including punk, emo, ska, swing, rock, rock-and-roll, alternative, metal, jazz, blues, noise band, experimental music, folk, acoustic, and "world-beat."
Events listed take place during the day, in the evenings, or as part of the city's nightlife as listed.
Although I'm reluctant to admit it, it is a Rochester blog and I'm essentially blogging about Rochester events.
I also tend to express opinions, review past events, make reviews, speak of philosophy or of a philosophical nature, discuss humanity and creativity.
Oh, and it's spelled JayceLand with no space and a capital L, not Jayce Land, Jaycee Land, Jace Land, Jase Land, Joyce Land, Jayce World, Jayceeland, Jaceland, Jaseland, Joyceland, Jayceworld, Jayceeworld, Jaceworld, Jaseworld, nor Joyceworld. (Now if you misspell it in some search engine, you at least get a shot at finding it.)
It's also not to be confused with
or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator.
