Celebration Cinema

Continuing in their classic movie series this season, Celebration Cinemas brings the Humphrey Bogart classic, set in World War II, to the screen. Time to see just where the whole “Play It Again, Sam” thing came from…

Tuesday, Sept. 24
Aaron Carter
7 p.m.
Club Fever
222 S. Michigan St.
South Bend, IN

Famous for his high profile girlfriends as a teen (Lindsey Lohan, Hilary Duff, Amanda Bynes), Aaron Carter was a Disney/Nickelodeon superstar with a brother in the Backstreet Boys. I suppose this show may have basic nostalgia appeal to some female twenty-somethings, but party girls may have a more mature, and um, controversial plot in mind… Tickets cost just the same either way.

Wednesday, Sept. 25
Oldies Blast at Hidden Pointe
7 p.m.-10 p.m.
Hidden Pointe
1062 Nickerson Ave.
Benton Harbor, MI

Michiana’s reigning authority on all things oldies, Rockin’ Randy, will be playing 50s, 60s, & 70s for anyone loving to dance to tunes of those decades.  If he could only bring in Ed Debevic’s visual ambience, he could well call it a time portal!
