Featuring Ratso (Kinky Friedman, Switchblade, Tex Rubinowitz and the Bad Boys), Jim Robeson (The North Star Band, Cathy Ponton King, Pete Kennedy and many others), Paul Goldstein (North Star Band and so many others he just can’t remember!). (8 to 11pm)

At the Old Greenbelt Theatre


“Jurassic World Domion” opens. 4:45 and 8 pm in the Main Auditorium. The future of mankind hangs in the balance as humans and dinosaurs coexist following the destruction of Isla Nublar. From Jurassic World architect and director Colin Trevorrow, Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live–and hunt–alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.

“Benediction” 5 pm in Screening Room
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Terence Davies, Benediction explores the turbulent life of WWI poet, Siegfried Sassoon. Sassoon was a complex man who survived the horrors of fighting in the war and was decorated for his bravery but who became a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war when he returned from service. His experiences on the Western Front inspired his poetry as he became one of the leading war poets of the era. Adored by members of the aristocracy as well as stars of London’s literary and stage world, he embarked on affairs with several men as he attempted to come to terms with his homosexuality. At the same time, broken by the horror of war, he made his life’s journey a quest for salvation, trying to find it within the conformity of marriage and religion.

 

“The Northman”  8:15 in the Screening Room. Cast: Alexander Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Ethan Hawke, Anya Taylor-Joy. Prince Amleth is on the verge of becoming a man when his father is brutally murdered by his uncle, who kidnaps the boy’s mother. Two decades later, Amleth is now a Viking who’s on a mission to save his mother, kill his uncle and avenge his father.
