Get out: Awesome '80s flicks at AFI Silver Theatre

afi silver theatreHas everyone shaken off their Artscape hangover? I caught Cold War Kids and Gov't Mule Saturday night, and wrote this review. Both bands were better than I expected.

With another Artscape just put to bed, there isn't much on the radar tonight in terms of Baltimore nightlife.

If you're itching to check out something fun, head on over to the AFI Silver Theatre for the Totally Awesome Films of the '80s series.

At 9:15 p.m., they're screening "Used Cars," a 1980 film about dueling used car salesmen. Tickets are $6-$10. Other films in the series include "Back to the Future" and "The Blues Brothers."

Sessa, there is a much better story across the street from the AFI, and one more appropriate to the nature of the blog...
