When it comes to the Pick of the Weekend I consult the Sac Calendar and try to decide what I think you might like. There were some big events like Sacramento Museum Day or Beer & Ballet but I have talked about them before. I decide instead to go retro and pick a screening of The Shining.
Get your finger up in the air to talk to Danny without speaking since he has a gift. BE ready to feel like you've always been in the Overlook Hotel and get ready for the madness of the "Twins" and all work no play makes Jack Nicholson crack.
The Shining is some Classic Cinema back on the big screen at the Crest Theatre.

Women's March on Sacramento
Note: The below information has been taken from a press release from the National Organizers for the National Women's March on Washington with some minor reformatting/editing by Sactopia and includes Sacramento specific Information. We feel this is a very important event!
The National Women's March will happen on Saturday 1/21/17 in Washington, DC along with many other cities across the US and even right here in Sacramento. Their idea is to "stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country." The march to the California State Capitol building starts at 10am at Southside Park. The rally is from noon-5pm at the West steps of the Capitol building. You can find out more at their website womensmarchsac.com and here for the official statement that these excerpts were taken from.
"The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us– women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim and Jewish, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. "
"In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington and it’s sister marche(s) throughout the country will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. Stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us."
"This is not an anti-movement; this is an opportunity for people to come together to stand for love, respect, and inclusion.
This is an INCLUSIVE march, and EVERYONE who supports women’s rights are welcome...."
The Crest Theatre gets perhaps a bit pessimistic about human kind this weekend by showing a screening of Idiocracy. Perhaps it's a statement on the Jerry Springerization of America is rubbing off with it being so close to Inauguration Day. Or I'm just puting words out there.
