The back half of September sees cooler temps, Tiki Tuesdays, plenty of local theater, film festivals and much more. Don’t have anything planned after Labor Day weekend? Here are our picks!
Arizona Underground Film Festival
The Screening Room presents the 12th annual showing of one of the nation’s top underground cult film festivals whose mission is to showcase the work of filmmakers with defiantly independent visions. This ten-day celebration will feature films from categories of Narrative, Horror, Documentaries, Experimental, Animation, and an Exploitation category.
Invisible Theatre: Now and Then
Invisible Theatre kicks off its 49th season with “Now and Then” by Sean Grennan. The play is a magical romantic comedy-drama about love and its unpredictable ways.
Arizona Theatre Company Season-opener: The Royale
Arizona Theatre Company presents “The Royale” at the Temple of Music and Art. Winner of two Obie Awards, an Outer Critics Circle Award, and a Drama Desk Award, The Royale is not your usual sports play. First of all, it is not really about life in the ring. Second, not a single punch will be thrown, at least not with fists. The play is a deeply theatrical and emotionally moving piece about the life of the outsider in American culture. Directed by Michael John Garces.
Every Tuesday, all summer long and all day long, join us for half-price Tiki-themed cocktails. Choose from The Original Mai Tai, Plantar’s Punch, Singapore Sling, Bananarama, Thurston Howl III or a Scorpion for Two. Tiki drinks wouldn’t be complete without a festive Tiki glass, which are available for purchase and can be used anytime you’re craving an exotic cocktail.
