Friday preview: Bainbridge edition

Here’s the Friday preview: Bainbridge edition for Oct. 19. Feel free to give your events a plug in the comment section below. Read the Sun’s regional Friday preview here. Above, a screenshot from “Caldera,” one of the films playing at Celluloid Bainbridge this weekend.

Weather: The National Weather Service is predicting an uninspiring mix of clouds and showers for the weekend. Expect highs in the low 50s and lows in the low 40s.

Sports:  Spartans football took a drubbing from O’Dea last night in the rain. Water polo plays Kentridge Saturday at the Aquatics Center. The full Spartans schedule is online.

Around the island: 

  • The Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival headlines a very busy weekend on the island. Veteran documentarians discuss making films in remote locations at 6 p.m. tonight at the Bainbridge Library. Festival films will be screened at the Historic Lynwood Theatre on Saturday and Sunday. Check the Bainbridge Arts and Humanities Council website for more information.
  • Families looking for a not-so-scary October event will appreciate the Bainbridge Gardens Pumpkin Walk. The tour runs 6-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Miller Road gardens. Donations will be accepted for the Boys and Girls Club.
  • Former poet laureate Billy Collins will hold a public reading from 3-4:30 p.m. Sunday at the Bainbridge High School gym. Tickets start at $10 and proceeds benefit the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
  • Pick up this week’s Islander for more event listings and tell us about your events in the comment section below.
