Raiders of the Lost Ark

7:00 p.m. on Saturday at State Theatre

The State Theatre kicks off their series this Saturday with Steven Spielberg’s quintessential adventure flick. Embodying the same panache of globe-trotting B-movies of the 1930s, this first film in the Indiana Jones series is sure to thrill even modern audiences.

Good People

7:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday at Kitchen Theatre

The Homecoming Players, an Ithaca-based theater group, will be taking over the Kitchen tonight and tomorrow night to showcase its latest production, Good People. A play about shame, money and growing up, the play’s title is possibly ironic and will surely up for debate during the readings. Good People is the Homecoming Players’ first performance of 2014, and will appear as part of the Kitchen Theatre Company’s Kitchen Sink Series.

Tickets are $15.
