Weekend Events Calendar
Observer Scene | Wednesday, December 10, 2008
Thurs: Red, 7 p.m., Browning Cinema
When a senseless, cruel act devastates a lonely Korean War veteran, he refuses to accept the outcome and pursues justice. Widowed Avery Allan Ludlow, a man whose closest companion is his 14-year-old ginger-haired dog named Red, loses his best friend at the hands of three thieving teenage boys. The boys escape but the story doesn’t end there. Ludlow will settle for nothing less than justice in the name of Red, and is scorned by the community as a result. Will his efforts pay off? Take a study break and head to Browning Cinema to watch this touching film. Tickets are $6 for the public, $5 for faculty/staff, $4 for seniors and $3 for students.
Fri: Madeline’s Christmas, 7:30 p.m., Elco Performing Arts?Center
In this sweet performance, which will take you on a trip down memory lane, the story of Madeline’s Christmas Adventure is brought to life, recalling the tale so many of us grew up loving. When Madeline’s peers come down with a bad bout of the flu just before Christmas, she is faced with the tough decision of sticking around to care for her friends or heading home for the familial holiday. She is overcome with compassion and decides to stay in Paris to comfort her bed-ridden pals. An adventure ensues when a rug merchant with some magical rugs shows up at the “old house in Paris that was covered with vines.” The performance will take place at the Elco Performing Arts Center. See www.artseverywhere.com for details.
Sat: Glee Club Concert, 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., Leighton Concert Hall
The fabulous glee club is at it again with its annual Christmas concert, a program that will explore classic carols, contemporary music and traditional works that will appeal to all audiences.
