As always, the Hollywood Theater on Potomac Avenue is showing an eclectic lineup this weekend.
Friday night starts out with a foreign film, "I Wish." This Japanese movie focuses on two brothers that are seperated by divorce but dream of being back together under one roof. The brothers are played by real life siblings Koki Maeda and Ohshirô Maeda. Like kids do, one brother comes up with a fantastic fantasy that when the new high speed trains in his town pass a miracle will bring him closer to his brother.
After the drama of "I Wish" the Hollywood will get a little bit more mature with a showing of "Barbarella." This futuristic sci-fy flick from the 1960s stars Jane Fonda as sexy spacesuit wearing Barbarella, an intergalactic femme fatale. Barbarella is sent to a distant planet where sin and pleasure are the norm and she must track down and kill the evil Durand-Durand. This movie is based on the French comic of the same name.
Sunday is all about vinyl records a the Hollywood. In the afternoon there will be vendors of records and record art. Admission is free to go to Vinyl Record Day. Then later in the evening the movie "Empire Records" will be thrown into the mix.
