International Film Festival Opening Night

Tickets

Just when you thought there were no good movies in theaters, the International Film Festival comes back to St. Anthony Main to cheer you up. For three weeks, the best of international cinema takes over the theater’s five screens. Get ready for a documentary about the photographer behind advertising’s golden age (Bert Stern: Original Madman), a film all about the overlooked world of early female jazz artists (The Girls in the Band), and a highly-anticipated dark comedy about an out-of-work man on a pop-culture killing spree (God Bless America). Thursday’s opening night features the French film The Intouchables about an odd couple pair of ailing billionaire patient and ex-con caretaker. Aster Cafe hosts the after party. 7:30 p.m. $15-$35. —LB
