PICK OF THE WEEK: Evil Dead in the Rocky Woods
Outdoor movie marathon!
Screens Friday, 7/29 @ Rocky Woods Campground (Medfield) - Presented by Coolidge Corner Theatre
It’s summer, which means there’s no better time to retreat to a secluded cabin, curl up with a good book, and summon a demon or two from the bowels of hell. To that end, the good folks at the Coolidge Corner Theatre have arranged one of their wildest events yet: a marathon of Sam Raimi’s belovedly ghoulish Evil Dead trilogy– 1981’s shoestring horror masterpiece The Evil Dead, 1987’s splatstick classic Evil Dead II, and 1993’s swords-and-skeletons epic Army of Darkness– under the stars at Medfield’s Rocky Woods Campground. Campsites are sold out at press time, but you can still stretch out on a lawn chair or picnic basket and enjoy three of the grooviest horror comedies ever made. Now, repeat after me: Klaatu, Barada… Necktie?

What’s New on Bostonhassle.com: From the Film Section
“FIRE OF LOVE, a documentary about volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft, is an exquisite exploration of the outward and inward relationships that people have to the things they love and how they share that. It comes as no surprise that director Sara Dosa holds the same kindness towards the Kraffts, her filmmaking team, and those who helped share this story to the big screen. As FIRE OF LOVE screens at the Coolidge Corner Theatre and Kendall Square Cinema, I spoke with Dosa for a few moments about her stumbling into ‘the greatest lava-fueled love story ever told.’”

“I’ve been to exactly one wedding this year, which should make it tolerable for me to start off with the sentence, “The definition of love, as defined by Webster Dictionary, is…” If I had to stand in front of an audience declaring what love was, I’d quote the words of another– most likely Richard Brautigan’s “I Was Trying to Describe You to Someone,” in which Brautigan recalls the time he saw a movie about a farmer listening to the radio for the first time once he had access to electricity.”

What’s New on Bostonhassle.com: From the Arts and Culture Section
“It’s the hottest day of a heat wave during one of the hottest summers on record. A crowd of 10 baristas and their friends stand around the entrance of the Starbucks at 874 Comm Ave. in Brookline. No one is going in today, neither customer nor employee. People wander up, looking for a cold drink, and find their access denied. They shrug or mutter in disappointment, while others look delighted and raise their fists in support. Passing cars occasionally honk in agreement. Each of them is on their way to air conditioning, breezy shade, cool relief. Not the employees.”
