The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Tabloid starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 2 p.m. According to the Eastman House calendar, "for a few months in 1977, the hottest story in England wasn't the Sex Pistols or the Queen's Jubilee, but 'The Case of the Manacled Mormon,' a sex scandal involving an ex-Miss Wyoming, a Mormon missionary, and an alleged case of kidnapping and sexual enslavement — on the part of the beauty queen. Mud was slung, revelations piled up, and the 'true story' was never quite cracked. Tracking down prime participant Joyce McKinney for an extended, lively interview, legendary documentarian Errol Morris has produced a real-world Rashomon whose wildly entertaining surface masks a clever inquiry into the slippery nature of truth."

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing House of Bamboo starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 5 p.m. Again from the Eastman House calendar: "though beautifully shot on location in Japan in colorful Cinemascope, and owing a visual debt to Mizoguchi, Sam Fuller's remake of the 1948 thriller The Street with No Name is, at its dark heart, very much a film noir. Infiltrating a criminal gang of dishonorably discharged American GIs in post-WWII Tokyo, American Robert Stack encounters violence, culture clash, and more than a little same-sex attention from gang-leader Robert Ryan."

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.
