Indie Memphis Micro Cinema Club #54 is this Wednesday, August 12th at the Power House, 45 G.E. Patterson, presenting the Best of the 35th Northwest Film and Video Festival. 7:30, free. The Indie Memphis website still states this series will be shown at Power House but it may be a good idea to check back on their site on Wednesday.
Visting Elvis fans may like to know that there is a free Sun Studio shuttle, which runs every hour, 7 days a week, from the Rock 'n' Soul Museum to Heartbreak Hotel, Graceland, Sun Studios and back.
Also good for visitors to know about is a company called Backbeat Tours that offers five different Memphis tours. The Mojo Tour highlights include Sun Studio, Stax and Beale Street; The Hound Dog Tour focuses on Elvis, highlights include Sun Studio, Lauderdale Courts and Humes High School; The Graceland Tour is just that; The Historic Memphis Walking Tour features Cotton Row, Court Square and the Cobblestones among other sites and the Haunted Memphis Walking tour points out some of the inexplicable and scary history of downtown at such sites as the Orpheum and Handy Park.
American Dream Safari hosts similar tours but also some that go further afield into Mississippi and Arkansas. Tours offered have some pretty great names like "Drive by Shooting", "Road Therapy" and "Juke Joint Full of Blues" plus the tour vehicle is a 1955 pink Cadillac.
I am doing my best to get some pictures of visiting Elvi to post, but so far they have eluded me. Alright, I didn't really go out of my way to find them this weekend as my nice neighbors gave me a HUGE amount of jalapenos and banana peppers and a few peaches mixed in there as well, all of which I gladly accepted. So, I was busy whipping up enchiladas and ate so much I could barely move let alone think about getting out in the heat to scurry about snapping photos of Elvi. I'll rally.
