Back to the Future Part II

Now that we live in the future that Back to the Future Part II promised us and it is devoid of hover boards, flying cars, 3D shark attacks on street corners, and blow-drying jackets, it's hard to know whether to be depressed or overjoyed. While the film was much-maligned upon initial release, time has been much kinder to the film than the third part of this classic trilogy. It's still hard not to be swept up in the adventures of Doc Brown, Marty McFly, and all of those neon jackets.

Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St.


Chasing Shadows

The Warren Miller brand has meant more to snowboarding and ski documentaries than just about any other name in the business. So when a new film of theirs is released, it isn't just a screening, it is an event worthy of screening at The Tower Theatre. Join some of the top athletes on the planet as they travel the world and carve across snowy paths some of us can only dream of setting foot on. Check the SCREEN section for a deeper look at the documentary.

Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St.


Beyond Measure

From rural Kentucky to Manhattan and beyond, public schools are breaking away from the test-driven curriculum that has dominated our education system for decades. This documentary focuses on schools that are using a different vision with critical thinking, creativity, and experimentation being the skills of importance much more than a regimented and unimaginative system designed to churn out youth that test well, but without any of the skills that make them special.

6:30 pm, Saturday, Oct. 24

Mountain View High School, 2755 NE 27th St.
