It's the calm before the storm this week at Memphis movie theaters, as the end of October and the beginning of November bring two film festivals to the Mid South.

Wednesday night, Indie Memphis and Rhodes College presents Johnny Cash at Folsom, a documentary by Bestor Cram. Cash's 1968 comeback album, recorded live in front of a captive audience at the infamous Folsom Prison in California, became an all time classic of American music. This film tells the remarkable story of how the record came to be, and the lives it touched in the 50 years since. The show will start at 7 p.m. at McNeil Concert Hall, and tickets are available at the Indie Memphis website.

Then on Thursday, Oct. 18, comedian Michael Jr.'s stand up comedy special More Than Funny: Everyone Has A Punchline plays for one night at the Malco Paradiso and Collierville theaters. Take a look at some of Michael's punchlines here.

At the Paradiso on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 2 p.m., the enormously popular Twilight series celebrates its 10th anniversary. It's the franchise that launched the careers of actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, both of whom have grown into great actors since their start as lovelorn young girl and lovelorn ageless vampire.

See you at the movies!
