Fathom Events, Peter Shapiro and Madison House will bring the epic three-night concert event “Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead” to select cinemas nationwide during the Fourth of July weekend.

“Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead,” featuring the reunion of Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir at Chicago’s Soldier Field, will be broadcast live on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 3-5, 8 p.m. It has been nearly 20 years to the day since the last Grateful Dead concert with Jerry Garcia, which took place at the same venue in 1995.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the movies, "Jaws" will make a special appearance in select theaters this summer.

Following successful screenings of "The Wizard of Oz," "Rear Window" and "The Sound of Music" earlier this year, Fathom Events will expand its partnership with Turner Classic Movies to offer the TCM Presents film series to cinemas.

Eight unforgettable titles will be presented through the end of 2015. The next installment - a true summertime classic - will celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Jaws," the prototypical summer blockbuster directed by Steven Spielberg based on Peter Benchley's 1974 bestseller about a great white shark that terrorizes a small beach community.

This summer, those searching for cinema options that boast content from sources other than comic books will need to seek out independent films at local movie theaters.

One such indie film, "Echoes of War," was scheduled to open Friday, May 15, at Woodlands Square AMC, 3128 Tampa Road, Oldsmar, but the showing has been canceled.

Directed and co-written by Kane Senes, "Echoes of War" is an exquisite period piece set in post-Civil War Texas. Part ruminating thriller and part melancholy character study, Senes' first feature film is eloquently barebones, driven by passionate, consummate performances from a talented cast.

Back in 2013, Joss Whedon sat down for some brainstorming - probably sometime after he stopped thinking about the $1.5 billion that "Marvel's The Avengers" made at the box office - and jotted down a few important components of the film's sequel.

That checklist might have looked something like this:

- Bigger
- Bolder
- More ambitious
- More intense
- More complicated

In all fairness, that blockbuster blueprint is not exclusively Whedon's contrivance ... but it seems to be what Hollywood - and the movie-going masses - have come to expect from big-budget action films, including those based on comic book titles. The heroes have to be larger than life, each new villain has to be exponentially more diabolical and daunting than the last one and the action sequences have to be overstated mind-bending computer-generated-imagery panoplies so bloated with visual information that audience members might risk blowing a cerebral circuit.

The awards ceremony will be presented July 16 in Los Angeles. FX will nationally televise the event in September.

The Prism Awards honor actors, writers, directors and producers for their authentic storytelling of people living with or recovering from mental health and substance use challenges.

It’s getting to be something of a cliché, really: Instead of blazing new cinematic trails with fresh, innovative scripts, Hollywood returns to its glory days seeking to squeeze more box office profit from previous success stories.

This summer’s parade of movies relies heavily on remakes, reboots and sequels. It’s technically already started. So what if the antiquated Gregorian calendar claims summer doesn’t begin until June 21. For Pinellas County students, the last day of school falls on June 2 this year. For beachgoers, summer kicks off with Memorial Day - which is Monday, May 25.

One Act Plays Festival
CLEARWATER – West Coast Players will present the 2015 One Act Plays Festival, running July 3-12, at the West Coast Players Theatre, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater.

WCP’s call to playwrights resulted in more than 250 submissions from all over the world. The best plays were selected, 11 directors were enlisted and 26 actors were cast.

“An intriguing evening of comedies and dramas await you,” a press release from WCP states. “Following each evening’s performances, audiences will vote for favorite plays. At the end of the production the votes will be tallied and the top three vote-getting playwrights will share in the distribution of the entry fees collected from the play submissions.”

In all, there will be seven performances during the production run. Evening performances, at 8 p.m., will be presented July 3, 10 and 11. Matinee performances, at 2 p.m., will be presented July 4, 5, 11 and 12. Tickets are $19.

For information or for tickets, call 437-2363, email boxoffice@wcplayers.com or visit www.wcplayers.org.

Before the One Act Plays Festival gets underway, theatergoers have an opportunity to see West Coast Players’ production of “Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays,” by Mo Gaffney, Jordan Harrison, Moisés Kaufman, Neil LaBute, Wendy MacLeod, José Rivera, Paul Rudnick, and Doug Wright; and conceived by Brian Shnipper.

The show runs June 5-21 with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $19.

Perhaps more than any other current controversy, same-sex marriage has been discussed and debated in state legislatures, classrooms, courtrooms and across dining room tables throughout the country. “Standing on Ceremony” brings the issue down to the human level with laughter and just a few tears. The play not only addresses gay marriage but also celebrates all individuals who commit to a life-long journey together.

“Standing on Ceremony” stars Tom Costello, Janice Creneti, Suzanne Delaney, Donna Donnelly, Mark William Myers, Margee Sapowsky, Nick Sloan, Nasja Wilkins and Ron Zietz and is directed by Donna Donnelly.
