The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Fog starting early at 7 p.m., and followed at 9 p.m. by Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Actor Tom Atkins will be on hand to discuss both films. In the former, "a Northern California coastal town is besieged by vengeful ghosts 100 years after a legendary shipwreck", and the latter, "a cadaverous toy manufacturer (Dan O'Herlihy) hatches an evil plot to destroy trick-or-treating children through the manufacturing of diabolical rubber masks". Note that Halloween 3 is a strange film in the Halloween series that has nothing to do with the Michael Meyers character.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Monster Squad starting early at 7 p.m. followed at 8:45 p.m. by Night of the Creeps with director Fred Dekker, and actor Tom Atkins on hand to discuss both films. If you recall the 1980's, The Monster Squad has a character who says, "wolfman's got nards!" which is about all you need to know. In Night of the Creeps, "world-weary Detective Cameron (Tom Atkins in his quintessential role) tries to solve a series of college campus murders involving walking corpses, wormlike alien creatures that take over your body, and a resurrected ax murderer."

The Beast Pageant I helped work on this film by Albert Birney and Jon Moses which is due to be screened at the Dryden in September. However, the filmmakers need more money to finish post-production, and have set up a Kickstarter Page for The Beast Pageant for supporters to commit money to the project. If they don't receive full funding by July 22, the project gets canceled.

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
Jake's World or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator.
