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. DONATE

Lounge Act Thursday: dance, film and animal lovers



I am for more excited for Thursday night's free screening of Beat Street than any man should be, but that's the kind of love I have for old-school NYC hip-hop. Here are a few other tips for spending your entertainment dollar.---

But we'll start with that Beat Street showing Thursday at Brewvies at 7 p.m. If you like breakdancing, graffiti and DJs who cut and scratch vinyl rather than pushing buttons on a laptop, this flick is for you.

Dance fans will want to make their way to Sugar Space, where Heather Nielsen Dance is delivering a showcase called Gaudi in Motion. It's a joint effort of modern dancers from the U and Utah Valley University, and starts at 8 p.m. Cover is $10.

Salt Lake Acting Company's new production of (a man enters) kicks off its run with a preview performance Thursday night, and Art Access Gallery is hosting an autograph signing with Temple Grandin at 1:30 p.m. Later at the Rose Wagner, the Utah Film Center hosts an Evening with Temple Grandin, the autistic animal-science professor who was recently the subject of an Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning bio-pic.
