Cutting Room for October 5

  • Depending on your tastes, consider the following a suggestion or a warning: Twilight is taking over Aksarben Cinema (askarbencinema.com) during the month of November. Every Tuesday night at 7 p.m. throughout the month, the theater will screen a past installment of the fangs and fornication series for just five bucks a pop. If you’d rather Twi-hard all at once, for just $25 you can catch a marathon of the three previous flicks starting at 4 p.m. on Nov 17 and culminating with the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part I at midnight. Be warned: That may be too much pasty-skinned, sparkly soap opera-ness for anyone to consume in one sitting.
  • Prior to November’s Twi-splosion, Aksarben Cinema is doing something everyone will agree is awesome. In conjunction with “Food Day Omaha,” on Sunday, Oct 23 at 1:30 p.m., Aksarben Cinema will screen Good Food, a documentary about sustainable food production. Starting that day and for every Sunday going forward, anyone who brings in a nonperishable food item between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. will receive a coupon for a free small popcorn, redeemable that day. So you get to help others, chow down on some tasty kernels and ponder a documentary about a vital subject. That’s a win, win, win, and those don’t come around often.
  •  Moses is calling for Steven Spielberg. Actually, Warner Bros is calling Spielberg about Moses, as the studio is determined to make an epic about the sea-splitting, beard-blessed religious figure. Whether Stevie will answer the call is unclear. That said, it may be hard to resist creating a cinematic version of Moses played by someone other than a man whose primary commandment involved “cold, dead hands.”
