Looking for something to do tonight in Key West? How about catching a one night only screening of the 80′s classic comedy “Back to School” starring Rodney Dangerfield? With supporting acts like Robert Downey Jr., Burt Young, and even a cameo by Kurt Vonnegut, this all star cast does a fantastic job of telling the story of a well-meaning business man who enrolls in college to encourage his young son.
As usual, this cheeky comedy is only playing for one night in one place: the Tropic Cinema theatre at 416 Eaton St., downtown Key West! Screening starts at 7:00pm; Get there early for good seats and maybe an extra slice of frozen key lime pie.
As part of Key West’s WomenFest (happening now!) the Tropic Cinema is screening the award-winning documentary I STAND CORRECTED, directed and produced by Andrea Meyerson. This beautiful film centers on John Leitham, a prodigious jazz bassist whose successful career faces challenges when her gender transformation into Jennifer Leitham begins.
Stay for a Q&A with director Andrea Meyerson after the show!
Screening begins at 7.30pm at the Tropic Cinema in downtown Key West, 416 Eaton St.
