The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Siddhartha starting at 8 p.m. From the Eastman House calendar, "adapted from Herman Hesse's canonical piece of philosophical literature, Conrad Rooks' film likewise follows a young member of the Indian elite as he embarks on an ascetic journey to achieve spiritual alignment."

In theory, there is another
Emerging Filmmakers Program
(240 East Ave.)
at 9:15 p.m., but I haven't heard anything about it so your guess is as good as mine. As soon as I get the details I'll post the films.
This morning at 7:30 a.m. in the cafeteria overlooking the arboretum in
Bausch and Lomb
(140 Stone St.) is the Artists Breakfast Group meeting ... anyone interested in art or creativity is invited.
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Dressed To Kill starting at 8 p.m. Here's the Eastman House calendar's description: "shortly after visiting her shrink (Michael Caine), a frustrated housewife (the very sexy Angie Dickinson) impulsively sleeps with a stranger, and is soon after brutally murdered. A prostitute (director DePalma's then-wife Nancy Allen) who witnesses the crime faces her own peril when she teams up with the victim's son (director-to-be Keith Gordon) to trap the killer. DePalma's riff on Hitchcock has, in the 30 years since its release, become a classic in its own right."

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.
