If there’s different strokes for different folks, that adds up to a lot of strokes, and many of those strokes are represented at the HUMP! Film Fest curated by none other than sex columnist Dan Savage. The program, which stops this weekend at St. Anthony Main, features regular folks of differing persuasions—body types, ages, fetishes, etc.—as not so regular porn stars in sex-positive films. If you’re tittilated, get a ticket early, the screenings sell out (one already has) faster than porn star pool boy drops his speedos. Thursday-Saturday, 7:30 & 9 PM. $20. —Curt Stanski

Amongst the many severed heads and gut-spewing abdomens of October’s horror film screenings, The Heights Theater has been doing a weekly series on that most visionary of film auteurs, Stanley Kubrick. Tonight’s installment, lush period piece about Irish rogue Barry Lyndon, is one of the director’s lesser known films, albeit one of his most spellbinding and meticulous (which, for him, is saying something), and will be a great addition to all the spoopy films you’re seeing this Halloween season. 7:30 PM. $10. —Curt Stanski
