7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Heights Community Congress and Heights Libraries invite you to a free screening of Selma (2014) at the Cedar-Lee Theatre, 2163 Lee Rd, Cleveland Heights. Hailed as "stirring, often thrilling, uncannily timely drama" by the Washington Post, this 2014 film depicts one of the pivotal moments of American history and the heroic members of the civil rights movement who brought about this change. (2 hours, 8 min.)

Stay after the film for a brief, moderated "talk back" with Vincent Briley, Assistant Dean of Access and Completion at Cuyahoga Community College.

The Family Claxon
7:30 PM
Onstage October 5-28.

An insane romp written by Eric Coble. Andrew is throwing a party for Grandad Claxon’s 150th birthday as a last-ditch effort to get noticed by the higher-ups. His plan for promotion might just work since Grandad is the company’s founder. If only Andrew’s wife would stop losing jobs and their daughter would stop blogging, while neighbors desperately flood into their home because of rampages and plumbing explosions. And did we mention the Guatemalan Flu that makes house pets spontaneously combust? WORLD PREMIERE.

Tickets: $12-30.
