On Saturday, it's the haunting horror drama The Man Who Laughs. Both screenings/concerts start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8-15 at the Lensic box office (211 West San Francisco) or online at

Cinematic Space—Filmmakers Bill Brown and Thomas Comerford are following up their 2002 Lo Fi Landscapes Tour with a new program of films about “the space of history and the history of space.” The new collection of 8mm and 16mm shorts is titled Pictures from the New World and culminates in “Chicago Detroit Split,” in which Brown and Comerford juxtapose footage of identically named streets in their respective hometowns, creating “chance encounters across time and space.” The tour will be stopping in Albuquerque on Wednesday, June 1, at the Guild Cinema. Brown and Comerford will be there in person to discuss their collaboration. Showtime is 8:30 p.m.
