I'm shutting this site down. Not as many events are happening due to the pandemic, I want to focus my energy on other projects, and there's another local event listing site now. Stay safe, and hopefully our leaders will make the changes necessary so we can all survive covid and enjoy live events together soon. --Daniel

Based on a weirdly true story set in the 1960s, Ford v Ferrari centers on the legendary ex-racer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and the rowdy, insolent Ken Miles (Christian Bale), who’s a prodigy both behind the wheel and under the hood. After being rebuffed and insulted following a failed attempt to purchase the Italian company Ferrari, Henry Ford II (Tracy Letts) vows to build his own race cars and crush the smug Enzo Ferrari (Remo Girone) in the 24-hour endurance race at Le Mans. Together Shelby and Miles get busy hammering frames and shedding scores of pounds of engine parts. Ford v Ferrari is so thrillingly well made that it’s only later, when your pulse slows, that you see how formulaic it is. But formulas are made to be overhauled, and this film has some fascinating upgrades. “Damon and Bale are magnetic.” IndieWire“It’s a new and emotionally complex model of an old-fashioned audience-pleaser, with wonderful performances by Christian Bale and Matt Damon and a resonant soul to go with its smarts.” The Wall Street JournalCast Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal
