Films for Your Friday the 13th
We’re still recovering from all the fun last night at Table 31. Elliot Loves was a great way to kick off opening weekend. The night was only made hotter by getting our picture taken with Amber Rose. Hopefully you were able to make it to the festivities, but if not there is plenty of fun to be had during the next week.
WHERE YOU SHOULD BE TODAY
5:00 p.m. Ritz East Theater 1: Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean. You’ve heard the rumors about actor James Dean’s sexual activities. Now, this bio-pic explores Dean’s early days during the Golden Era of Hollywood.

5:15 p.m. Ritz at the Bourse: Heavy Girls. Two men bond – and possibly spark a romance – while looking for one’s mischievous mother, who has dementia.
7:00 p.m. Ritz East Theater 2: naked as we came. Director Richard LeMay will be in attendance to discuss the film with the audience and take questions.
