Posted By on Tue, Feb 6, 2018 at 1:31 PM

It's a busy week in theaters!

Tuesday night presents a wealth of options. The Morris and Mollye Fogelman International Jewish Film Festival presents a comedy from Morocco at the Memphis Jewish Community Center auditorium. Midnight Orchestra tells the story of a man trying to put together a tribute to his late father by finding all the musicians he played with.

At Studio on the Square, Indie Memphis presents In The Fade, a German drama about a woman who loses her family to neo-Nazi terrorists, and the price her quest for revenge exacts.

Meanwhile, over at Crosstown Arts, the monthly Shoot & Splice series presents a lecture by Rhodes College Film and Media Studies Professor Rashna Richards based on her book For The Love of Cinema: Teaching Our Passions In And Out Of The Classroom.
