Stuff to do this weekend

It's looking like this might be a good weekend to hibernate. But if you're sick of playing Wii and your Netflix queue isn't looking so good to you, there is some stuff going on you might want to check out:

"Killer of Sheep"
Tonight at Page Hall on the downtown UAlbany campus the New York State Writers Institute is showing Charles Burnett's film "Killer of Sheep." It's one of the National Society of Film Critic's "100 Essential Films" and tonight you can see it for free.

M. Butterfly
This is the last weekend to catch Capital Rep's production of M. Butterfly. No, it's not the opera. It's David Henry Hwang's gender-bending drama about cold war politics and romance. While we can't personally vouch for this particular production, Capital Rep usually does good work.

"Forces of Nature"
Proctor's theater in Schenectady is having a kind of natural disaster festival. All weekend long they'll be showing "Forces of Nature." The National Geographic big screen flick is an up close look at some amazing earthquakes, volcanoes and storms.


A don't forget that Saturday is a "Free Day" at Mass Moca.

We saw Killer of Sheep at Spectrum, maybe a year or so ago, it was a wonderful film one of the best I have ever seen. I highly recommend it for everyone. It is like snapshot into someone's life...not a lot of action...just really simple and really beautiful.
