Stay Lit: 10/19-10/22 Weekend Happenings in DC for the English Major

This week’s edition of Stay Lit is all about film! Reel Affirmations is DC’s International LGBTQ Film Festival and it starts tonight and goes until Sunday. Held at the Gala Hispanic Theatre this festival will feature documentaries, shorts, and feature films. It starts tonight at 7pm with the feature film Signature Move, which won top honors at the Calgary Internation Film Festival for its portrayal of a Pakistani-American woman leading a double life as a lesbian and a female wrestler. Complex, funny, and poignant stories like this one are sure to be featured throughout this weekend’s event.
Price: $12/ 1 film ticket – $30/ 3 film tickets (other film passes are available)
For a seasonally appropriate experience, all month long Miracle Theatre has been playing some of Alfred Hitchcock’s most classic films. Saturday night’s feature is The Birds, which, if you’ve never seen it, is good for a laugh and a scare. This mini Hitchcock fest ends next Saturday (10/28) with Psycho. Seeing that shower scene on the big screen will surely be a memorable experience.
Price: $6 w/ student ID
