Thursday, April 16, 6 pm. Tin Pan Theater. 869 NW Tin Pan Alley. $10
A film about a race that seems like the polar opposite of every other race in the world; there is no prize money, no support vehicles, and no special treatment of any kind. This film chronicles the inaugural year of a 4,233 transcontinental race across the United States with completely unsupported racers. Part of the race also goes from the McKenzie Pass through Sisters, which links the film even closer to Central Oregon. $2 of each ticket is donated to the Central Oregon Trail Alliance. The filmmaker as well as the male and female winner of the race will be in attendance for a Q&A.

The Breakfast Club: 30th Anniversary Screening
The Breakfast Club turns 30 this year, which means it still feels 20, but now something is expected of it, and maybe it should stop bringing laundry over to mom's with the excuse that she likes it when we really both know it's just being lazy. There will be a pre-screening interview with Thomas Del Ruth, the cinematographer for the film, a costume contest, and multiple people complaining about how they just don't make 'em like that anymore.
Wednesday, April 22, 6:30 pm. The Old Stone Church. 157 NW Franklin Ave. $8-$10
