3 things to do for free in Denver this week, March 11-14
Joan Crawford once famously proclaimed that she loved playing bitches. But back in 1928, in Our Dancing Daughters, the film that made her a star, Crawford played quite a different role: a jilted roaring '20s party girl. And you can see that movie for free this week, as well as experience a video art installation and join in a political open mic night. For more events, check out the Westword calendar, and share other bargains in the comments section below.
Our Dancing Daughters at the Denver Central Library (Tuesday) See superstar Joan Crawford in the silent film that jump-started her career in 1928. Crawford stars as "Dangerous Diana" Medford, a young woman who's part of the wild youth culture of the roaring 20s -- rather than the Mommy Dearest who was a feared and famed iconic glamor queen.
WHY NOT! video installation at FRCC Visual & Performing Arts Gallery (Wednesday) Artists Jeromie Dorrance and Derek Fortini will unveil their newest video installation today at Front Range Community College: It's a video tribute to art icons of the past in the Centennial state, as well as Colorado's rising stars. Listen to the artists explain their work at the opening reception; the installation will be up until April 4.
Mutiny Word Night at Mutiny Information Cafe. (Thursday) Local comedian Onus Spears has a new night in town -- a politically-oriented open mic that promises to be a safe, open space to share ideas about the state of the world. The event is all-ages, drug- and alcohol- and censorship-free, and there should be plenty of information flowing. Join the conversation!
