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

ERIN GO BRAGH

Ghosts, Toasts, Floats and Hopes (March 1 – 17)

In support of Mayor Johnson’s decision to forgo a big parade this year for St. Patrick’s Day, we would like to offer a fun, socially -distanced alternative filled with the spirit of the beautiful Hostess City and are asking Savannah residents and businesses to get creative and decorate their homes, porches. stoops, windows, garages, and balconies this year float style. Think BIG like the New Orleans Mardi Gras style floats (yes we are borrowing the idea a bit this year from our ‘Nawlins friends but wanted to give it a Savannah flavor so each city can celebrate its individuality). The idea is for decor to be visible both to passers-by on foot as well as to cars driving down the street. We are asking all neighborhoods all over Savannah to participate and residents and business owners can add their location and category to a virtual map and photos, memories, traditional St. Pat’s recipes, and more can be shared via social media.Residents and businesses may start decorating at any time (we are giving a suggested two-week window time frame starting the first week in March and running through St. Patrick’s Day so that there is enough time for multiple neighborhoods to get involved. Decorating and all costs of materials, as well as set-up and clean-up, are the responsibility of the individual property owners and participants. Not sure what to do? Some ideas and discussions will be forthcoming.The slogan of the event is Ghosts, Toasts, Floats, and Hopes in hopes of raising community spirits during this unprecedented time and to show off the creativity and true hospitality of Savannah. While sad that the parade is canceled this year, we fully support the City of Savannah’s decision and ask everyone to adhere to state and local health advisories and mask up! Please know that this event is not hosted by the City of Savannah.The Rules:
1) Please keep decorations/signage on private property and off the tree-line and city sidewalks.
2) Decorations must not impede any city, emergency, or mail services. Please make sure house and business address numbers are still visible and paths to entryways free and clear.
3) Please be respectful of your neighbors and make sure decorations are family-friendly and not offensive in terms of race, religion, creed, or sexual orientation.
4) Be sure to adhere to all local ordinances in terms of noise, lighting, and placement of signage.
5) Please clean-up after the event and dispose of materials properly via sanitation service or recycling programs.

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.
