Mad Max Fury Road: Black & Chrome

Sat., Feb. 16

Director George Miller has said that he prefers the black and white version of his film Mad Max: Fury Road — a shocker, given that one of the most notable visual aspects of a film noted for its visuals was its over-saturation of color. A bleak and de-saturated post-apocalyptic landscape this was not. Max (Tom Hardy) and Furiosa (Charlize Theron) and the five virgins motored through a desert wasteland that was roughly the color of orange pop. The sky was more teal than blue. But the removal of this explosive palette reduces the film to its starker elements — man vs. hideous wilderness; woman vs. the patriarchy; gnarly post-apocalyptic truck vs. gnarly post-apocalyptic armada. It should be — unlike some milquetoast "directors' cuts" that feature one or two meaningless deleted scenes — a new and unique viewing experience. The film won six Academy Awards in 2016 and was ranked by numerous publications, including this one, as among the year's best films. At midnight tonight, the Capitol Theatre will screen the "black & chrome" edition of the 2015 high-octane romp as part of the Melt Late Shift series. Tickets are $6. (Sam Allard)

Tri-C High School Rock Off

Sat., Feb. 16

When the annual High School Rock Off launched some 20 years ago at the Odeon, the promoters at the locally based Belkin Productions (now Live Nation) saw it as a way to reach out to area high schools and provide the kind of outlet that students might not have. Two decades later, the event, now held at the Rock Hall, continues to thrive. Thirty-six bands participated in this year's competition. A total of 147 band members, including six solo artists, represented 64 schools. Three performance rounds have led up to the Final Exam, which takes place tonight, when the 2019 Best Band in the Land title will be awarded by music and entertainment industry judges. Prizes include three scholarships to study in the Creative Arts program at Cuyahoga Community College. PNC Bank will help high school seniors launch their careers in music by providing the scholarships. Tonight's competition takes place at 6, and tickets are $10. (Niesel)
