Is that you, Frida?

scrib­ing a “high-oc­tane, bruis­ing movie,” a re­viewer for the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter wrote: “Raw, in­trigu­ing and en­er­getic de­spite its flaws, the film fades in dra­matic power over its fi­nal stretch and doesn’t al­ways do jus­tice to the po­ten­tial rich­ness of its sub­ject, but un­til then, it makes for an au­then­tic, dis­tinc­tive and watch­able blend of the tough and the ten­der.” “Wood­peck­ers” opens to­day for a week of screen­ings at Mi­amiDade Col­lege’s Tower Theater and AMC Aven­tura, but one of the film’s stars, Do­mini­can-Haitian ac­tor and film­maker Jean Jean, will take part in a Qand A af­ter a 7:30 p.m. Satur­day show­ing at Sa­vor Cin­ema in Fort Laud­erdale.

Week­end movie II

Some­times, you just want “un­stop­pable fun” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Not only does “Kings­man: The Golden Cir­cle” prom­ise that, but on the IMAX screen at Fort Laud­erdale’s Mu­seum of Dis­cov­ery and Sci­ence you get mas­sive Halle Berry. Mas­sive El­ton John, too, which has to be un­stop­pable fun. Visit MODS.org.

Pierce re­mem­bered

The Cul­ture Room on Sun­day will host a memo­rial con­cert and ben­e­fit for the fam­ily of Rich Pierce, the vet­eran South Florida gui­tarist, a mem­ber of Fort Laud­erdale­based South­ern rock band Ram­bler, who was shot and killed last month. Ram­bler will per­form along with Dead­star Assem­bly, with doors opening at 7 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is free, but do­na­tions will be ac­cepted. Visit Face­book.com/Ram­blerOf­fi­cial.

Cit­ing the need for Irma stress relief, the Boca Ra­ton Mu­seum of Art has waived ad­mis­sion fees through Oc­to­ber, which is dou­bly im­por­tant in the event you need to get in there to find some in­spi­ra­tion for the art-in­spired cos­tume con­test at the mu­seum’s up­com­ing Hal­loween Happy Hour fundraiser. Tak­ing place 5-7 p.m. Oct. 30 at Tanzy in Mizner Park, the event will raise money for the mu­seum’s field-trip fund, which cov­ers trans­porta­tion for low-in­come stu­dents to visit the in­sti­tu­tion. At the happy hour, dressed as your fa­vorite art­work or artist (the mind reels), you’ll get two drink tick­ets and graze on small plates and ap­pe­tiz­ers, while prizes are awarded for best solo and group cos­tumes. Tick­ets cost $35 at Bo­caMu­seum.org/events.

Free trade

Through Tues­day, Pérez Art Mu­seum Mi­ami will trade free ad­mis­sion for a do­na­tion to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mi­ami-Dade and Feed­ing South Florida, two or­ga­ni­za­tions col­lect­ing sup­plies for peo­ple af­fected by Hur­ri­cane Irma. De­sired items range from canned food to cloth­ing and bug spray. Visit PAMM.org.

Take the kids

The Atlantic Ho­tel & Spa on Fort Laud­erdale beach hosts its Dive-In Movie and Din­ner 7-10 p.m. to­day on the fifth-floor pool deck. The movie, “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” comes with a ham­burger or hot dog served with chips and a foun­tain drink, pool ac­cess and three-hour com­pli­men­tary valet. A full bar and the Candy Bar also will be avail­able. Tick­ets cost $19.95, $9.95 ages12 and younger. Visit Face­book.com/ At­lanticHotelAndSpa.

Hmmm… pie

The third an­nual River­walk Fall Fes­ti­val noon-4 p.m. Satur­day at Es­planade Park in down­town Fort Laud­erdale has all man­ner of free fam­ily-friendly things to rec­om­mend it, in­clud­ing car­ni­val games, train rides, live mu­sic and the Florida Pan­thers gam­ing truck (the Cats’ first pre­sea­son home game at the BB&T Cen­ter is Tues­day vs. Tampa Bay). But there is also the pie-eat­ing con­test, cour­tesy of the Good Pie Com­pany, an event for which you are al­ways in reg­u­larsea­son form. Visit GoRiver­walk.com.

Ar­sht tick­ets

Tick­ets for the new arts sea­son at the Ar­sht Cen­ter will go on sale for the first time on Satur­day with a “no han­dling fees” pro­mo­tion. The deal will ap­ply to tick­ets pur­chased 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the box of­fice, at Ar­shtCen­ter.org and by call­ing 305-949-6722.

‘Earth’ mover

Oct. 8, a Sun­day, is the new date for an art talk by Brook­lyn-based artist Justin Brice Guar­iglia, whose cli­mate-minded ex­hi­bi­tion “Earth Works” is the sea­son-opening show at the Nor­ton Mu­seum of Art in West Palm Beach. The orig­i­nal get­to­gether on Sept. 7 was post­poned by the ap­proach of Hur­ri­cane Irma. The 3 p.m. pro­gram and ad­mis­sion to the mu­seum are free. Visit Nor­ton.org.
