MON 9/21:Movies & Music

Being brief today. I don't know why, but there's an old, science-related screening and a documentary about Hollywood on the same night.


MON 9/21

"Coma": Screening & Discussion
at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline
$9.75 / $7.75 students

Dr. Robin Cook MD has practiced medicine in Boston for years. About 30 years ago, he wrote a novel about a doctor in a fictional Boston hospital who discovers a creepy, secret experiment with people in comas. It became a movie shortly afterward, which was directed by Michael Crichton.

Dr. Robin Cook will be in attendance for the discussion after screening.

MON 9/21

"My Big Break": Screening & Discussion
at Kendall Square Cinema, 370 Binney St, Cambridge

This documentary began about 10 years ago when a struggling director started to film the travails of his 4 roommates who were struggling actors. Three of them find some success including Wes Bentley who played Ricky, the troubled pot-dealing kid in "American Beauty".

Director Tony Zierra, producer Elizabeth Yoffe and one of the actors Chad Lindberg are scheduled to appear for a Q&A after the movie.

Part of the Boston Film Festival (movies are shown in Cambridge and most didn't really excite me very much).

MON 9/21

Guillermo Sexo (11:15pm), Apple Betty (10:15pm), Trabants (9:30pm)
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

Apple Betty always rocks with a verve. Guillermo Sexo sounds pretty good as they roll out a darkish, noisy psych rock. The one song on Trabants MySpace is a cool surf instrumental, and I'd expect more of the same.

Times listed above are very rough estimates. My understanding is that music usually starts around 10pm.
