Location: Capitol Theater 206 5th Ave SE Olympia

HAROLD AND MAUDE

3:30pm doors / 4:00pm film
$8 general admission / $5 OFS members
Tickets available at box office day of show

Dir: Hal Ashby / 1971 / US / 91 min / DCP

Beloved by just about everyone, Harold and Maude is the ultimate unconventional love story. Harold (Bud Cort) is 19 and obsessed with death, which he contemplates while speeding down winding roads in his modified hearse. Maude (Ruth Gordon) is 78, eccentric, and loves her life. They meet at a funeral, and soon they’re inseparable, as the two social outcasts find in each other a connecting force that allows them to rise above the boring, ‘real’ world. Funny and oddly alluring, Harold and Maude will teach you to live life joyfully, while listening to lots of awesome and uplifting Cat Stevens music.

Truth

6:30 pm to 8:30 pm More Info

Location: Capitol Theater 206 5th Ave SE Olympia

Dir: James Vanderbilt / 2015 / Australia, US / 125 min / DCP

Truth is a gripping newsroom drama that details the downfall of CBS news anchor Dan Rather. Robert Redford portrays Rather as a veteran newsman whose belief in the rules of journalism is as strong as his conviction to reveal the truth. When his producer, Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett), unearths a story that could nab then-president George W. Bush in a blatant lie, they run with it. Truth delves into the details of this case, revealing the startling lengths reached by those in high places to withhold facts from the public. Steven Holden of The New York Times calls Truth “a beautifully executed journalistic thriller.”

Hitchcock/Truffaut

9:00 pm to 11:00 pm More Info

Location: Capitol Theater 206 5th Ave SE Olympia

Dir: Kent Jones / 2015 / France, US / 79 min / DCP

Based on a book of the same name, Hitchcock/ Truffaut documents an interview between two of the most important filmmakers in cinema history. In 1962, French New Wave co-founder Francois Truffaut wanted to free Hitchcock of his reputation as a light entertainer, so he scheduled a week-long interview with the director. What followed covered the groundbreaking techniques of both filmmakers in a volume that would become essential, inspiring generations of filmmakers and film lovers. In Hitchcock/ Truffaut, this historic meeting is celebrated, along with its illuminating influence on some of today’s best filmmakers. Kenneth Turan of The Los Angeles Times calls Hitchcock/Truffaut “Smart, thoughtful and elegantly done.”

Location: Harlequin Productions 202 4th Ave E. Olympia, WA

In this Tony Award-winning play, playwright Christopher Durang mashes Chekhov, Greek tragedy and modern pop culture with his own offbeat sensibility to create a truly unique and hilarious comedy. Your heart has to go out to these three aging siblings whose artsy parents named them all after characters from Chekhov.

Vanya and Sonia spent years ministering to their aging parents, then, following their deaths, living aimlessly in the family home. In the meantime, sister Masha has traveled the world, the star of an endless series of sexy slasher movies, which have provided the family income. Now Masha, an aging sex symbol, is back with her 20 something boy toy, Spike, in tow. She’s not making as much money she used to, and is intent on selling the house they grew up in. Farce and valuable lessons ensue.

Outcasts and Innocents: An Evening with Northwest Photographer Alice Wheeler

Location: Lacey Timberland Library 500 College Street SE Lacey, WA

Cost: FREE

Seattle photographer Alice Wheeler is internationally known for photographs of Nirvana, Bikini Kill and the punk-feminist bands of Riot Grrrl. She has created a new book of photography titled “Outcasts and Innocents,” and will share imagery and commentary from this book on Friday, February 12 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Lacey Timberland Library.

Slate.com chose the book as one of the top 10 photography books of 2015. It’s publisher, “Minor Matters” describes the book as depicting “the lesser-seen realities of Seattle’s recent history: not the scrubbed-up coffeehouse earnestness represented in films and sitcoms, but the glory of the drag scene; the devastation of AIDS; the freedom of choice celebrated at Hempfest, gay pride parades, and protest rallies; and yes, a music scene that continues to captivate music lovers internationally.”

In this Tony Award-winning play, playwright Christopher Durang mashes Chekhov, Greek tragedy and modern pop culture with his own offbeat sensibility to create a truly unique and hilarious comedy. Your heart has to go out to these three aging siblings whose artsy parents named them all after characters from Chekhov.

Vanya and Sonia spent years ministering to their aging parents, then, following their deaths, living aimlessly in the family home. In the meantime, sister Masha has traveled the world, the star of an endless series of sexy slasher movies, which have provided the family income. Now Masha, an aging sex symbol, is back with her 20 something boy toy, Spike, in tow. She’s not making as much money she used to, and is intent on selling the house they grew up in. Farce and valuable lessons ensue.

Location: Rhythm & Rye 311 Capitol Way North Olympia, WA

Cost: Undeclared

Happy Orchestra, produced by drummer Tarik Abouzied, is a band that puts smiles on faces and lights fires under feet. Its members are drawn from some of the Northwest’s most highly regarded funk, jazz, and soul bands including McTuff, Skerik’s Bandalabra, Hot Rod, and more. The band combines instrumental and compositional firepower with a determined effort at crafting an intensely happy musical experience.

www.happyorchestra.com

With an intelligent fusion of dance beats, yacht rock, disco and contemporary hip-hop, Richie Aldente creates ferociously infectious music that is smartly crafted but unabashedly fun-loving. While the sound hints of influences from the 70’s and 80’s, it is decidedly modern, appealing to a new generation of listeners who were born long after the genres that inspired it.

Toliva Shoal Sailboat Race

More Info

Location: See website for details

Toliva Shoal Race

This special event, which coincides with Presidents’ Day weekend in February, is part of the Southern Sound Series. It is co-hosted by SSSS and the Olympia Yacht Club.

Toliva Shoal is a full weekend of events, including the race itself. It is our best-attended race and the only one that attracts boats from throughout Puget Sound, commonly drawing 80-100 boats. Many locals who only do one race a year do this one. There is a party the night before that has a reputation in the Puget Sound sailing community as an event all by itself. This is your chance to sample “down Sound” racing without leaving Olympia.

Course:
start and finish between Olympia Shoal and the RC boat, rounding Anderson Island, the Toliva Shoal Buoy, and the buoy in Balch Pass to port. 36.8 nm

This race is not part of our regular SSSS race program. It is run by the Toliva Shoal Race Committee, which represents both SSSS and OYC. You must register in advance and pay an entry fee. It has its own Sailing Instructions, which are different then the instructions in this book.

This is the third race in the four-race Southern Sound Series. The Southern Sound Series Council organizes the series and represents Tacoma Yacht Club, Gig Harbor Yacht Club, Three Tree Point Yacht Club, and of course SSSS and the Olympia Yacht Club.
You are welcome to sail the entire series. Many SSSS boats do. More boats, and tighter classes make great winter racing. It is a good introduction to racing beyond Olympia.

The Complete Southern Sound Series Races are:
December Vashon Island Race TYC Tacoma
January       Duwamish Head Race TTPYC Des Moines
February Toliva Shoal Race SSSS Olympia
March       Islands Race   GHYC  Gig Harbor
For more information on Series Races, including specific dates for the races, Sailing Instructions, entry form, or results, see the Southern Sound Series Office or the Toliva Shoal Race Office.
If you still have questions about these races, contact the Toliva Shoal Race Chair, the SSSS Representative to the Southern Sound Series Council, or the SSSS Race Chair.

Bucharest Drinking Team with Artesian Rumble Arkestra

9:00 pm to 11:00 pm More Info

Location: Rhythm & Rye 311 Capitol Way N, Olympia, WA

Cost: $8 Door ($6 Students)

The last time these two bands converged on the Rhythm and Rye was to christen the new stage! They are back! Two big bands, music from all parts of the globe, drinking, dancing and merriment.

The Bucharest Drinking Team started in the winter of 2010 as a one-time pickup team of Balkan musicians from across the Northwest who convened in Seattle for a single event. Both the audience and musicians had such a good time that another round was called for. And another, and another...

Borrowing stylistically from great Balkan brass bands like Fanfare Ciocarlia and Boban Markovic, the team mixes in a liberal shot of Romanian folk music and a penchant for 80s disco from behind the Iron Curtain to bring you a high-proof Eastern Bloc Party.

Music, live and on foot, for the socially just... or just social.The music of the Artesian Rumble Arkestra is influenced by many traditions, including jazz, Balkan Brass, Brazilian samba, Bollywood film music, traditional hymns and pop tunes. The Artesian Rumble Arkestra works to contribute its portable and mostly unamplified energy to local social and economic justice events.
