Today In NOLA 9.27.15


Today in New Orleans, watch Big Trouble in Little China at Prytania or catch Guidance at Zeitgeist. Marigny Opera House is hosting its Sunday Musical Meditation featuring Hanna Yim, and it’s day three of the NOLA Horror Film Fest. On this day in Louisiana history New Orleans streetcar employees went on strike, demanding 8-hour days and a $.25 cent/hr. minimum wage (1902) and Lil Wayne was born (1982). Now for all of today's feats:

 

Big Trouble in Little China (Prytania, 10p.m.)

 

The Prytania is now running a late night series featuring movies from director John Carpenter. Tonight, the theater will play Big Trouble in Little China. The flick narrates the story of truck driver Jack Burton. When his friend’s fiancé is kidnapped by a Chinese street gang, all sorts of mayhem ensues, including run-ins with an evil sorcerer.

 

Guidance (Zeitgeist, 6:30p.m.)

 

Zeitgeist is finally back from their hiatus! This evening, they’ll be playing Guidance, a Canadian comedy. Guidance is about a drug-using guidance counsellor who somehow becomes a huge hit with his students.

 

Sunday Musical Meditation (Marigny Opera House, 5p.m.)

 

For this week’s Sunday Musical Meditation, Marigny Opera House will feature the music of violinist Hannah Yim. Yim currently holds the position of Assistant Concertmaster of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. She has performed with other orchestras including the New World Symphony and the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert is free and open to the public, but donations are suggested.

 

NOLA Horror Film Fest (Rare Form NOLA, 6:45p.m.)

 

Today marks the third day of the 5th Annual NOLA Horror Film Fest. This year, the film aims to promote filmmaking from Louisiana while also highlighting films from around the country and world. Films that will be shown today include Come With Me, Kiss The Devil in the Dark, You’re Killing Me and Trace. At 9p.m., the fest will host the 2015 NOHFF Awards Ceremony.
