Tybee Post Theater presents “The Trial of the Chicago 7”:

After a quiet run through the low-profile critics’ awards, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” showed up on everyone’s radar screen earning four nominations from the Golden Globes, including Best Drama, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.

Brilliant Writer-Director Aaron Sorkin’s monumental courtroom drama is based on the infamous 1969 trial of seven defendants charged by the federal government with conspiracy and more, arising from the countercultural protests in Chicago at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The trial transfixed the nation and sparked a conversation about mayhem intended to undermine the U.S. government.

While “The Trial of The Chicago 7” takes place a half century ago, the film’s events feel very 2020,with its backdrop of protests against the establishment, police brutality and racism.

“’Chicago 7′ is a crowd pleaser first and foremost, and in that regard it succeeds on almost every level… the energy never flags, resulting in a movie that is by turns exhilarating, devastating, enraging, and inspiring, and above all, wildly entertaining,” write one critic. Rated R

Where’s the Noble Bones? – A Bone-Chilling Scavenger Hunt at Wormsloe Historic Site: Help find one of Savannah’s founders — Noble Jones — who has lost all of his Noble Bones. Every Saturday in October, Wormsloe State Historic Site in Savannah will host a spooky scavenger hunt. It gives families a perfect way to get outdoors and enjoy nature and history while scaring up Halloween fun. Guests will make their way to the museum where they will find QR codes giving the first clue to begin their journey. The first clue will lead you to the first “Bones” family member hidden on the main trail. Near this skeleton will be the next QR code with the next clue. After locating the fourth Bone’s family member, it will lead you to your final destination. The scavenger hunt is free with admission, which ranges from $4.50 children to $10 adults. Every Saturday will offer a different experience with unique locations and clues for locating the skeletons.
