Tonight (Tuesday) Old Bank DVD returns a little theater life to the Historic Core, exhibiting "Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers" at the Regent Theater on Main street. Ed has all the details over at View from a Loft. Show starts at 7:30pm, and afterward several people involved in the film will be on-hand for discussion. Tickets are $5.

Tom Gilmore recently acquired the lease to the Regent and is planning to turn it into an event space for concerts and screenings. As far as I'm aware this will be the first thing to happen in there since he took over control. The Regent isn't opulent like the Broadway theatres, but it'll be a great space for helping to activate the Downtown scene.

DLANC has the first meeting of its new board tonight at 6:30, but I'm hoping to head over and catch most of the action afterward.
