Shock to the System

What is it like to have repressed childhood memories suddenly come alive? The psychological thriller Shockwaves screens tonight at the Museum of Contemporary Art and it provides a window into a man’s mind as his seemingly perfect life spins out of control. When he confronts past childhood psychic trauma, everything starts to unravel. Cleveland artist Kasumi directs, and she takes a kaleidoscopic approach to the story, challenging viewers to examine the effects and implications of the cycle of violence and the human condition. While this film doesn’t sound like it’s for the faint of heart, the press kit describes it as “darkly comic.” This film is only showing in one other U.S. location and goes hand in hand with Kasumi’s Perpetual Series exhibition, also opening today at MOCA. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. (Trenholme)

Swim at a Public Pool



 For those of us not lucky enough to have a friend with a pool, the region’s public swimming offerings are the next best thing. There are, of course, Cleveland’s public pools, but with erratic openings based on temperatures and staffing, they are hardly worth counting on. Luckily, you can snag a guest day pass in many suburbs where the water is warm and the beach chairs bountiful: Dragga Pool in Mayfield Heights will run you $10 as a non-resident, Walter’s Grove in Parma will cost you just $6, Parma Heights’ primo pool awaits for $8, Foster and Becks Pools in Lakewood will let you in for $5.50, and Beachwood’s absolutely stunning outdoor aquatic center will refresh and entertain you for $10.
