This past Saturday we met for our first craft night and used perler beads to create shapes like Reptar, Mega Man, and Colossal Titan. Thank you to those who came for the melting plastic and stayed for the impromptu Mario Kart Tournament. Another thanks to those who voted in our poll to determine the location of the next Show and Tell. In case you missed our announcement last week, the next Show and Tell will take place next Friday at the Callaloo Cafe on Waterloo at 7:30. Hope to see you guys there!
We have a couple new events to tell you about this week, so make sure you check back here this week for announcements!
Here is what is happening in Cleveland this week.
It’s a great week to catch a movie in Cleveland and you would be remiss not to see at least one movie at the drive-in this summer. The Aut-O-Rama Drive-in in North Ridgeville will be showing a double feature of Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles tonight. May the schwartz be with you!
Wednesday, of course, is new comics day which brings you the return of Brian K. Vaughn’s Saga with issue #13 as well as Infinity #1, the first issue of Marvel’s summer event. Of course there will be several variant covers for Infinity, because everyone knows one copy wouldn’t be enough for the collection.
This week at the Playhouse, Cinema at the Square is showing The Princess Bride. Doesn’t sound too bad. I’ll try to stay awake.
Friday and Saturday are the final days of Literary Lots, located in Novak Park in Ohio City (near the intersection of Fulton and Bridge). Literary Lots brings engaging programming to neighborhood kids through creative land re-use, artist engagement, youth education, and urban renewal to be enjoyed by all. Fitting for the neighborhood location, Literary Lots will be food themed. Events include food (obviously), movies, poetry, book readings, song writing, and yoga. Check this out for a full schedule and registration.
Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel is showing on Disney Friday. This is the first official Disney/Marvel production since Disney bought Marvel. You can also look forward to a similar crossover with Star Wars, the other universe Disney snatched up.
Movie releases for this week include Kick Ass 2, in which a new wave of self-made masked crusaders joins Kick Ass on patrol of the city while being hunted down by Red Mist, now “The Mother F****r”. Of course the heroes require the assistance of Hit Girl who is trying to live a normal teenage life.
Also being released, Jobs, a biographical drama film based on the life of Steve Jobs staring Ashton Kutcher.
The Playhouse will be showing Planet of the Apes at Cinema at the Square.
POP! The Comic Culture Club is meeting Monday at the Parma Heights Library to hear everyone’s Comic Confessions. Here is your chance to come clean about the comics you have pretended to have read but maybe they’re still in your ‘to-read’ stack. It’s OK, they’re friendly.
In the spirit of celebrating the return of Breaking Bad, for those of you still watching, we leave you with this.
