The Boss featured in documentary

August 17, 2007|By Tim Swift | Tim Swift,Sun Reporter

Belvedere Square wraps up its outdoor series of concerts on film with a documentary of Bruce Springsteen rocking out in Dublin. In We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, cameras follow the Boss and the Session Band on the final stop of the 2006 tour.

The original album was a favorite of many critics, and the tour ramped up the material creatively. But the Seeger Sessions may put off Springsteen purists. The tour featured music by radical folk musician Pete Seeger, not songs penned by the Boss himself; the E-Street Band is nowhere to be found.

The free show starts at 8:30 tonight in the Belvedere Square parking lot, York Road and Belvedere Avenue. Call 410-534-2358 or go to belvederesquare.com.

Bogie at the Charles

The Charles Theatre's summer-long salute to film noir continues this weekend with In a Lonely Place. The 1950 film stars Humphrey Bogart as a cynical screenwriter suspected of murder and Gloria Grahame as the neighbor who falls under his spell. Though not as popular as his other films, In a Lonely Place is considered one of Bogart's strongest movies. Showtime is noon tomorrow, with encores set for 7 p.m. Monday and 9 p.m. Thursday. Tickets are $6 tomorrow, $8 other times. Information: 410-727-FILM or thecharles.com.

`Dates' night

The 2007 Little Italy Open Air Film Festival continues tonight with the Adam Sandler romantic comedy 50 First Dates. Drew Barrymore co-stars as a charming girl with a really short-term memory whom Sandler goes all out to court. Showtime is 7 p.m. at High and Stiles streets. Admission is free; it's advised that you take lawn chairs. Information: little italyrestaurants.com.

A strike for `Lebowski'

Maryland has yet to host the Lebowski Fests that have had fans flocking to such varied sites as Los Angeles, Louisville, Ky., and Edinburgh, Scotland. But the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring is doing its part today and tomorrow with 10:45 p.m. screenings of The Big Lebowski. Joel and Ethan Coen have a hilariously skewed take on The Big Sleep, with Jeff Bridges as a slacker embroiled in a case of mistaken identity. Tickets are $9.75; $8.50 for students, seniors and AFI members. Information: 301-495-6700 or afi.com/silver. Bowling ball not required.
