This weekend, Phoenix crams most of its nerdy events into a couple of places.
Thursday, July 2nd
I’ve been excited about this one for a while now. Basically, some local film groups are helping to screen their best Sci Fi films, a lot of them locally made. Only $5 & it benefits the film groups.
Starts at 6pm, downtown at the Cronkite School of Journalism.
Friday July 3rd
The Heard Museum is letting kids become superheroes for the evening. Jousting and music will be part of it.
Radical. Starts at 6pm on Friday.
Friday & Saturday, July 3rd & 4th
(Since these events are all kinda brothers & sisters, I’m grouping them all together.)
Here’s the plan. Gather food and resources then leave your place of comfort and head to the Filmbar to setup camp for the rest of the day. While you’re there, watch movies about kids who refuse to verbally accept their inevitable demise, a cop who was struck by lightning while being bitten by a cobra, and everything Shatner has been in that’s not Star Trek (set to psychedelic rock), and even a Studio Ghibli film.
See link above for showtimes.
Or you can head to Barnes & Noble at Desert Ridge who are doing a bunch of pop-culture events this month, starting with a Time Traveling Weekend.
Friday is a Doctor Who themed with trivia, giveaways & costumes, then Saturday is Dinosaurs, & Sunday takes you back to Ye Olde Scotland.
Happy 4th, y’all!
