A Cinefamily Valentine's: Wendy Clarke's Love Tapes & Casablanca @ Silent Movie Theatre -
Alone for Valentine's Day? Don't just sit in the bar and drink by yourself and get weepy over "your song"- watch Humphrey Bogart do it. It's much more glamorous in a silver-toned black and white print in a Moroccan bar with a piano player. The classic movie about a bittersweet, hopeless love affair is playing at the Silent Movie Theater, along with Wendy Clarke's "Love Tapes": a project that the artist has been compiling since 1979, these are heartfelt, three-minute videos feature people musing on love over handpicked background music. Bring a hankie - or a date. - going.com

Slide Show Color is Back! @ Fake Gallery -
What happens when you put nine storytellers, comedians, singers, poets, and a state-of-the-art 1974 Kodak Slide Projector all in one room? What happens is, as a song, comedy act or poem is performed, a slideshow backs up the performance. Sometimes the acts are crazy funny and/or weird, but it’s pretty cool and pretty damn funny too. -going.com
