Now, lest your brain has imploded, proceed through our weekend picks at a leisurely pace. You can do it.

Farewell 35mm @ MADCAP Theaters
Feeling down after the recent closing of The Royale and pondering the eminent demise of 35mm film, Zachary Jackson, of Becky Bodacious fame, decided that curing his blues would mean hosting a double-feature rolled out on honest-to-goodness film.

As the credits roll, curious audience members will be allowed into the projection booth to witness what goes into a celluloid screening. Hell High and Flowers in the Attic will screen at MADCAP starting at 8 p.m. Admission is $8. See details here.
