More so than many recent family-friendly films, Walt Disney Studios “Pete’s Dragon” is unambiguously designed for the younger set - say kindergarteners through about age 10. Its tale is charmingly uncluttered and straightforward, populated with well-defined characters and punctuated with emotional sequences.

That’s not to say older kids and adults won’t enjoy the film. “Pete’s Dragon” is a refreshing throwback to classic children’s fare, free of all the underlying subplots and cultural references that modern filmmakers often insert to keep adults from dozing off at the matinee. There’s nothing wrong with those films - but, all that clutter can sometimes lessen the impact of a good story. Sometimes, it makes a reviewer wonder if writers are competing to see how many crude references to bodily functions they can squeeze into a single summer animated feature.

Fathom Events, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Park Circus will celebrate the 25th anniversary of “Thelma & Louise” with a special screening Sunday, Aug. 21; and Wednesday, Aug. 24, in select cinemas, including three in Pinellas County - AMC Woodland Square 20 with IMAX, 3128 Tampa Road, Oldsmar; Regal Park Place Stadium 16 with RPX, 7200 U.S. 19 N., Pinellas Park; and Muvico Sundial 19, 151 Second Ave. N., St Petersburg.

Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) - a bored housewife and a straight-laced waitress at a coffee shop - are best friends who are sick of what they’ve settled for. Deciding to escape the tedium of their everyday lives, the pair sneak off in Louise’s ’66 T-bird convertible for a three-day fishing trip with no husbands, no boyfriends and no problems. But things don’t go quite according to plan when an encounter with a drunken, foul-mouthed, would-be rapist transforms their quiet getaway into a cross-country escape that will change their lives forever.

With enough action and adventure to fulfill its role as a cinematic thrill ride, “Star Trek Beyond” restores some of the heart and soul of what has been missing in the recent franchise films.

The film, directed by Justin Lin from a screenplay by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, certainly goes beyond expectations, delivering a breath of fresh air into a beloved space saga that is celebrating a milestone.

In 1966, the world was introduced to the crew of the starship USS Enterprise when the first episode of “Star Trek” - Gene Roddenberry’s breakthrough science-fiction television series - debuted on NBC.

Selwyn Birchwood
Selwyn Birchwood, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 26-27, 8 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. General admission is $16 in advance and $19 the day of the show.

Birchwood, the rising young blues fireball, is a guitar and lap-steel-playing bundle of pure energy. He delivers his original songs with a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma made all the more impactful by his raw, unvarnished vocals.

Birchwood plays high-octane blues – at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute – with true passion and honest emotion. With his band feeding off his drive and exuberance, the striking 29-year-old with his trademark Afro roams the stage (often barefoot), ripping out memorable guitar licks with ease. His ability to win over an audience – any audience – is proven night after night on the bandstand. With his warm, magnetic personality, Birchwood is as down-to-earth as his music is fun, thought-provoking and vital.
