    Queer Film Theory 101: Rom-Coms

    Ah, the rom-com: a pie-in-the-sky reflection of exactly zero people’s real-life experience that somehow we still aspire to. This educational evening will explore rom-coms and how they f’ed with people’s heads via a panel of movie “professors,” including the Chronicle’s own Qmmunity and Calendar Editor James Scott. Get perspectives on some fave rom-coms through a queer lens, diving into how films like Playing by Heart, My Best Friend’s Wedding, and You’ve Got Mail baffled and bewildered with their wacky ideas of how relationships work. There’s a lot to unpack here, so it’s sure to be enlightening! – Kat McNevins

    The Blanton: The Floating World

    The opportunity to witness, in person, the creative expression of different times and diverse cultures is one of the perks of city-dwellers everywhere – and exemplified by the collections and traveling exhibitions hosted by UT’s acclaimed Blanton Museum of Art. The Blanton’s newest show displays masterpieces from Edo-period Japan, on loan from the Worcester Art Museum through June 30. These “pictures of the floating world” depict the lifestyle, pleasures, and interests of the urban population – samurais, geishas, kabuki actors, boat parties, palaces, and lush landscapes. As then, so now: Much of who we are is what we do with our lives. – Wayne Alan Brenner
