THE EVENT "Indiana Jones" Marathon
THE DEAL All four films in the enduring Spielberg-Lucas franchise will be playing back to back this weekend in a promotional event for their first-ever Blu-ray release (they will arrive in stores Tuesday). The marathon is a one-day-only event that includes 1981's "Raiders of the Lost Ark", 1984's "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" and the most recent entry, 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." The total combined running time is 8 hours and one minute.
WHO Lance Guest
THE MOVIE "The Last Starfighter"
THE DEAL Even more good news for '80s film geeks this weekend: Guest, who played an arcade-loving teenager whisked into space in this 1984 sci-fi adventure, will appear in person with his co-star Catherine Mary Stewart. She also played the lead role of Reggie, a post-apocalypse valley girl, in 1984's "Night of the Comet," a rarely screened but ahead-of-its-time gem that mashed up science fiction, comedy, zombies and teen romance. Both films are playing under Brett Sherris' Summer Camp Cinema banner.
INFO Saturday at 9 p.m. at Cinema Arts Centre, 423 Park Ave., Huntington. Tickets are $15. 631-423-7611; cinemaartscentre.org.
WHO Anisa Mehdi
THE MOVIE "5 Broken Cameras"
THE DEAL Shot almost entirely by Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer, this documentary chronicles local resistance against Israeli settlements in the West Bank village of Bil'in; the title refers to the destruction of each one of Burnat's cameras. Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi helped assemble the footage. Mehdi, a Middle East peace activist, filmmaker and film teacher at Seton Hall University, will speak at tonight's screening.
INFO Thursday night at 7:30 at Plaza Cinema & Media Arts Center, 20 Terry St., Patchogue. Tickets are $13. The film screens again, without Mehdi, tomorrow at 2:30 p.m.; tickets are $10. 631-438-0083; plazamac.org.
