The Pima Air & Space Museum recently re-introduced a WWII aircraft that was submerged in Lake Michigan for almost 50 years with a unique two-tone paint scheme. Lost at the end of WWII, the Grumman FM-2 Wildcat sat in a watery grave until it was recovered by the U.S. Navy in 1991. The plane was so well preserved in Lake Michigan that Pima Air & Space was able to put it on display for several years while it awaited its turn to be officially restored. Then the museum conserved what the lake preserved to maintain the Wildcat’s original paint scheme, markings and history, only restoring the plane’s missing exterior parts (mainly fabric and wood that disintegrated and its engine). It now displays a weathered “fresh water” antique patina and a shiny “like new” bright blue. “Very few museums get the chance to preserve a specific point in time,” James Stemm, Assistant Curator for the Pima Air & Space Museum, said. He continued, “We were excited to preserve the integrity of the aircraft and the integrity of its story by keeping most of the airplane as it was found.” The General Motors FM-2 Wildcat, Bureau Number 16161, is a late WWII variant of the Grumman F4F Wildcat and built by General Motors’ Eastern Aircraft Division. It was delivered to the Navy December 30, 1943 and later assigned to the Carrier

Qualification Training Unit in Glenview, IL in March 1945. The aircraft was lost to Lake Michigan during an attempted landing on the USS Wolverine. The pilot was training to land on aircraft carriers and apparently failed to react properly to a wave-off. The Wildcat caught one of the arresting cables on the ship at full-engine power, causing it to fall off the ship’s port side and into the lake. Luckily, the pilot was not injured and returned to his unit to continue practicing his landing. He was just one of several in his training unit to take a bath in Lake Michigan, as landing on a moving ship is no easy task. The training unit ended up littering the bottom of southern Lake Michigan with aircraft. Despite being submerged for several decades, the Wildcat was remarkably preserved by the lake’s depth and cold, fresh water. This provided an incredible opportunity to preserve the aircraft as it was and keep it frozen in 1945. Wildcats were the primary fighter planes for the Navy and Marines the first two years of WWII. The Wildcat was soon replaced by other aircrafts, but its compact size made it the best choice for American and British escort carriers. The escort carriers used the Wildcat fighter planes to hunt and destroy German submarines. Pima Air & Space Museum is located at 6000 E. Valencia Rd., just off I-19 exit 267, in Tucson.

October 30th Part of the Loft Cinema’s “Master of Horror: The Films of John Carpenter” series. Carpenter’s low-budget “babysitter in peril” fright flick terrified the world and became not only a landmark in modern horror, but also one of the most phenomenally successful independent films ever made, setting the standard for the onslaught of oversexed-teens-meetmaniac killer movies to come. Jamie Lee Curtis (in her first major role) shot to Scream Queen stardom as the innocent but resilient Laurie, a high school girl made all too aware on one memorable Halloween night that evil stalks the shady streets and living rooms of her small Illinois town in the form of escaped psychopath Michael Myers, a hulking monster in a white mask who may indeed be “The Boogeyman.” (Dir. by John Carpenter, 1978, USA, 91 mins., Rated R) Digital Event Location: 3233 E.

Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal in this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

ALL SOULS PROCESSION 2013 A Truly Spectacular Public Ceremony Sunday, November 3rd The All Souls Procession is perhaps one of the most important, inclusive and authentic public ceremonies in North America today. The Procession had its beginnings in 1990 with a ritualistic performance piece created by local artist Susan Johnson, who was grieving the passing of her father. Inspired by Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos holiday, Johnson felt she should honor her father in celebration and creativity. The performance was very well received and many artists were inspired to continue growing the Procession into its modern incarnation. Today we find ourselves organizing over 35,000 participants on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long human-powered procession that ends in the finalizing action of burning a large urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes of the public for those who have passed. Inside the event are myriads of installation art, altars, performers, and creatives of all kinds collaborating for almost half the year to prepare their offerings to this amazing event. The All Souls Procession, and now the entire All Souls Weekend, is a celebration and mourning of the lives of our loved ones who have passed. Many Mouths One Stomach (manymouths.org), a non-profit

arts collective based in Tucson, AZ, is the organizing body for the Procession, and serves as a vehicle for working artists to collaborate, create, and inspire the public through Festal Culture. “Festal Culture” is the expression and fulfillment of core human needs through public celebration, ceremony, and ritual. The All Souls Procession is an event that was created to serve the public need to mourn, reflect, and celebrate the universal experience of Death, through their ancestors, loved ones, and the living. The Procession is a sanctuary for community members from all walks of life to express their grief and loss in a celebration of creative energy and a rejoicing of living. With the continued cooperation of the City of Tucson, Tucson Police and Fire departments, local businesses, civic organizations, and participants like YOU- MMOS has guided the development of the parade to accommodate the growing number of participants in a healthy and harmonious way. DO: Come and enjoy the experience in a way that works for you. Dress up, get out of your regular regiment and persona; make a mask, a puppet, an art installation, an altar; some way of honoring those who have gone before, who we remember, honor, release, and embrace. Allow yourself to flow into an experience of real community, where we interact in ways that are different, authentic to our nature, and open to our feelings.

For event details and route please visit: http://www.allsoulsprocession.org Gather at 5:00pm on N. 6th Ave north of the underpass and south of 6th St. Leave at 6:00 pm and proceed South on 6th Ave to Alameda and turn right. Go directly west on Alameda and wrap onto Congress and go West to Mercado San Agustin

DON’T: Be high, drunk, or in anyone’s space in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable. This event should be safe to bring a newborn infant to, or your dear aging grandmother. What allows the magic to happen is for everyone to feel safe. It is your job to create this kind of space. The moment we require help from police or any other authority to make sure that happens, we have lost something truly precious. Please make sure to honor barricades, civilian security and civic event staff at grand finale and take care for yourself and your fellow participants in stepping off of curbs, crossing streets, train tracks and trolley tracks etc.

REVIEWERS ROUNDTABLE The following are reactions from each of AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film commentators in an effort to generate a well-rounded overview of this weekend’s new releases.

MOVIE TWEETS! Still haven’t seen that movie that your friends have been talking about? Film Columnist Randy Montgomery recaps what you may have missed in 140 characters or less.

‘Carrie’ ~ While nothing can compare to the campy 70’s classic, this remake manages to come fairly close. A perfect pre-Halloween way to celebrate. Grade: B-

‘All the Boys Love Mandy Lane’ Amber Heard plays a young woman who is invited by a group of highschoolers to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. While the festivities rage on, the number of revelers begins to drop quite mysteriously. (R - 90 minutes) Joseph: “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” is both a breath of fresh air and a tribute to classic slashers, playing out in a relatively predictable fashion before finally featuring a delightfully killer twist. It is certain to have inspired the new inclusion of intelligence in the horror genre.

‘Inequality for All’ Filmmaker Jacob Kornbluth follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he looks to raise awareness of the country’s widening economic gap. (PG - 85 minutes) Stan: Reminded of a college lecture with exceptional visual aides and delivered by an engaging professor, former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich presents a ‘no nonsense’ strikingly revealing look at the economic disparity between the citizens of the US and the contributing factors affecting us all as a society. Joseph: “Inequality for All” accomplishes the impossible. It is not only interesting to people who ordinarily find politics to be prosaic but also effectively encourages them to speak up and take action, keeping general audiences engaged from start to finish.

10 86

‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ ~ Reminiscent of its predecessor, but should manage to entertain fans and young audiences who are the target market. Grade: B-

‘Escape Plan’ ~ They were bad a*s in the 80’s, but should Stallone & Schwarzenegger really still be acting? Action packed, but can easily be missed. Grade: C

‘Gravity’ ~ Stunning cinematography adds to a tense plot and award-worthy performances by Bullock and Clooney. Hold on for a wild ride. Grade: A

‘Mother of George’ ~ An engrossing, well-acted, albeit slow moving drama set in New York City that offers a peek into a culture that is foreign to many. Grade: B

‘Prisoners’ ~ Strong performances are tested by a so-so script that challenges the viewer, not only because of subject, but poor writing. Grade: C+

COLUMNISTS

The following quotes were pulled from interviews conducted by AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists with talent speaking on behalf of movies recently released in theaters.

STAN ROBINSON

Director Dennis Iliadis (‘+1’) By Joseph J. Airdo

“I came up with this story and it is a combination of a few ideas. The first thing is I have always been fascinated by the idea of what would happen if you could meet yourself. I took this idea and put it in a very compressed, crazy environment where you don’t really have time to intellectually process it. I threw it into a crazy party where desires are high and emotions are raw. “So when these things happen, you are actually in the same crazy space with yourself but yourself is claiming

those exact same things that you want. So it very quickly becomes quite aggressive and competitive. It is also a movie about second chances. Many times in my love life I have messed up real bad and I was like, ‘Please give me those 20 minutes back so that I will not mess up again.’ This kind of gives the characters that second chance. “I want [viewers] to ask themselves what would happen if they found themselves in the same space with themselves but realized that the duplicate or doppelgänger was claiming the same things that they want. In this movie, the characters embrace that in very different ways. I would like [viewers] to think, ‘What if this happened but I didn’t have time to think about it?’ Would you become your enemy? Would you be able to find harmony with yourself? I also want them to have a great time with

Stan Robinson’s reviews reflect the insights of an insider. With more than 22 years of experience in media production, Stan uses his behind-the-scenes expertise to survey a film’s technical attributes and considers the challenges that had to be overcome in order to cinematically present a story.

RANDY MONTGOMERY

In “+1,” which is now available on VOD, Rhys Wakefield, Logan Miller and Suzanne Dengel play college friends who go to the biggest party of the year, where mysterious phenomenon disrupts the night, quickly descending into a chaos that challenges their friendships - and their ability to stay alive.

ABOUT THE FILM

this film because I think that it flexes your brain but it is also a very fun experience.” - Dennis Iliadis

Randy Montgomery’s reactions reveal the emotional intuition of an average moviegoer. With a master’s degree in counseling and education, Randy grounds his opinions in a unique combination of both a movie’s surface entertainment value and its ability to affect him on an even deeper level. E-mail him at Randyjay7694@yahoo.com.

By Joseph J. Airdo In “Escape from Tomorrow,” which is now available on VOD, Roy Abramsohn plays an unemployed father who, in a world of fake castles and anthropomorphic rodents, sees his sanity challenged by a chance encounter with two underage girls on holiday. The movie was shot guerilla style at Walt Disney World, without the awareness much less permission of theme park. “They were almost caught once. They went inside of the park twice in seven minutes and people got very suspicious. The security called them to one side and both [Roy Abramsohn] and [Elena Schuber] took the children into the bathrooms. And they all have different last names so if they were to check their I.D.’s they would have been in trouble. So then they were like, ‘Oh my God, we have got to take our mics off and throw away these tapes.’ But they

didn’t know how much footage was on the tapes so they couldn’t throw them away. “So then they came out of the bathrooms and one of the assistant directors discreetly walked by them and said, ‘Get out of the park.’ So they quickly got out of the park and jumped into a white van that was waiting for them. Security kind of followed them and took the number of the van. They were walking after them so they sped off and the assistant director said, ‘Go home. Everybody go home. Get out of the hotel and go home.’ So that is what they did. But they got most of the footage that they needed. “I think that [viewers] will be asking themselves a lot of questions like, ‘What the heck was going on at the end of the film?’ I am still asking myself what was going on because

there are so many different ways that it can be interpreted. But you never know what is going to happen next in the movie. You really don’t. So I just hope that they go on a crazy ride and are left thinking, ‘What was going on there?’ It’s food for thought. They will keep thinking about it and they will be entertained - not just because of the Disney stuff but because I think that it is a really entertaining film.” Alison Lees-Taylor

Downtown Tucson is full of up and coming contemporary restaurants, brew pubs, and bars, and Elliots on Congress has found a niche in both location and style by being a bar and restaurant with a menu that competes for attention by providing such appetizers as duck sliders and mussels. We ordered these two appetizers which came out in an eye-catching presentation and well timed service. Not only did the waitress explain the differences in preparation, she had also taken the time to help us make our decision by describing ingredients and tastes. Along with her personal history and side notes which all added to the fun of our outing.

On Thursday, Oct. 24, Food Network adds another show to the family business reality genre with the premiere of “Restaurant Divided.” Each week, chef Rocco DiSpirito comes into a struggling family-run restaurant whose owners are split over how to save it. DiSpirito then divides the space in two, with one side each devoted to the competing concepts. Customers and critics are invited in for one night. After that, DiSpirito looks at the profitability of the night and the customer reviews and decides which idea works better for keeping the restaurant afloat.

Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park – Superior

With winter rapidly approaching, I recommend getting in a hike on Mt. Lemmon, where the leaves are turning and the air is fresh. Past the Ski Valley area, at the highest reaches of the mountain are some gorgeous trails, a fire lookout and a seemingly abandoned military area that is fenced off. I like to take Mt. Lemmon trail to Southerland trail and come back to the parking area through the Meadow trail, this makes for an easy to intermediate hike and only takes about two hours. The first two trails are full of stunning views of the city and surrounding area all the way to Oracle - and I like to stop in at the fire lookout as a great spot for pictures and to chat with the gentleman who works up there. Meadow trail is a gorgeous area full of grass, wildflowers,

bees and butterflies. You can escape in the ponderosa forest one last time before the icy cold winds and snow take over Ski Valley. From Catalina highway, go all the way up the mountain and turn at ski valley road, follow it all the way up until you see a closed gate and park in the dirt area off to your left hand side. When you are done hiking, you can always swing by the ski valley area and get a sky ride on the ski lift. It takes about a half an hour but it is so worth your while. Don’t forget to bring your park pass, it’s five dollars a day or only twenty dollars a year. I always get the year pass because it pays for itself in only four trips. Get out there and enjoy the mountains!
