DANCE: Pilobolus @ The Egg, Albany. The modern movement company founded in 1971 mines their vast repertoire as they perform their innovative and athletic “Classics” program. 7:30pm; free pre-performance talk at 6:45pm. $28.
THEATER: “Radio Heaven” @ College of Saint Rose’s Campus Theatre, Albany. Re-creating vintage radio shows – classic soap opera, comedy, suspense and how-to shows, complete with those wonderfully annoying commercials. 2pm. $10.
FILM: “City Lights” @ Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, Great Barrington. Charlie Chaplin’s 1931 classic begins with an uproarious skewering of pomp and formality, ends with one of the most famous last shots in movie history and, from start to finish, so completely touches the heart and tickles the funny bone that in 1998 it was named one of the American Film Institute’s Top 100 American Films. 4pm. $7.
FILM/MUSIC: “Beyond Iconic: Photographer Dennis Stock” @ the Rosendale Theater, Rosendale. A one-time-only screening of Hanna Sawka’s documentary film about Magnum photographer Dennis Stock, who created some of the most famous images in the world. Followed by a Q&A with the director. And then at the Rosendale Cafe, a live music performance featuring composers and musicians who scored the film – Teri Roiger and John Menegon – joined by percussionist Tani Tabbal and trumpeter Rebecca Coupe-Franks. 7:15pm. $7. Cafe concert at 9pm. FREE.
