Need Something to Do Thursday?


What a day, what a day, what a day... You got the Basques going nuts, BP on trial, nationally recognized hip-hop at the Reef and renegade dance troupes invading the BW office. And that's just a few snapshots of what's going on in downtown alone today.

On top of all the buzz, we're all still a bit oxygen-starved after the smoke from yesterday's fire.

It's all enough to make you want to sit in a nice dark room away from it all. Just check out and watch an awesome flick, let the world figure it out on its own for a little while.

Well, lucky for you, today's a great day for just that. Cause The Flicks is doing a special screening of the Akira Kurosawa classic, The Hidden Fortress, about two peasants tricked into helping a defeated general back to power.

The show starts at 7 p.m. and is $12 at the door. The next film in the series, Ikuru, shows next Thursday, August 5.
