The longest day of the year is now past, but our long list of Great Gables Events just keeps getting longer. We are indeed blessed to live in a city of such wonders and delights.
It’s our pleasure to help you discover the myriad events that most appeal to you. Make plans now to spend some quality time with family and friends in the coming days.

Band Aid at Cosford Cinema
Band Aid, the refreshingly raw, real, and hilarious feature debut from Zoe Lister-Jones, is the story of a couple, Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Ben (Adam Pally), who can’t stop fighting. Advised by their therapist to try and work through their grief unconventionally, they are reminded of their shared love of music. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, they decide to turn all their fights into song, and with the help of their neighbor Dave (Fred Armisen), they start a band. A story of love, loss, and rock and roll, Band Aid is a witty and perceptive view of modern love, with some seriously catchy pop hooks to boot. Cosford Cinema is located on the second floor of the Memorial Classroom building on UM campus. Cash only. Call 305-284-4861. http://www.cosfordcinema.com
Sci-Fi Duo: Stalker and Solaris at Gables Cinema
Experience the mysteries and revelations of Stalker and Solaris, Andrei Tarkovsky’s science-fiction masterpieces, in new restorations produced by Mosfilm. A master of the long-take, able to craft beautiful compositions with the camera, Tarkovsky is one of the Soviet Union’s greatest filmmakers or, as Roger Ebert, said, a man who consciously embodied the idea of a Great Filmmaker.
For a limited time, purchase a $15 ticket to both Stalker and Solaris online. Coral Gables Art Cinema is located at 260 Aragon. Call 786-385-9689 or visit the web site for details. http://www.gablescinema.org
