We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Just in case the Salt Lake Film Society's regular offerings weren't cool enough, tonight offers a look at some of its even more eclectic programming.

At the Tower Theatre at 9 p.m., it's time once again for the semi-regular Open Mic Night, showcasing short films by local filmmakers. SLFS staff, a guest critic and the audience will all have the opportunity to select a favorite that will be featured in a year-end "Best of ..." program. If you've got a creation on DVD and $5 for the submission fee, bring it down. If you've just got $1 for the "suggested donation," come and cheer on your friends and neighbors.

The Broadway Centre, meanwhile, presents The Red Shoes, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's 1948 interpretation of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale set in a world-class ballet company starring Moira Shearer (pictured). It's part of Ballet West's "Ballets Russes" festival, with only a $5 admission for a 35mm presentation.
