Film Streams continues its Silents in Concert series tonight when Nick White and Derek Pressnall of Tilly and the Wall collaborate with Dan McCarthy and friends to provide a live soundtrack to the 1930 film People on Sunday. According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, the film “follows the lives of a group of residents of Berlin on a summer’s day during the interwar period. Hailed as a work of genius, it is a pivotal film not only in the development of German cinema but also of Hollywood.

If you haven’t been to one of these Silents in Concert screenings, this is your second to last chance this year. My suggestion (having gone to the Jake Bellows / Ryan Fox edition) is to bring earplugs. Depending on what kind of audio set-up White & Pressnall have in mind, you might wish you had them. And get there early to get the best seats. The screening starts at 7 and is $8 for Film Streams members, $12 for non-members, and $10 for students, seniors, teachers and military. To purchase tickets online or find out more, go to Filmstreams.org.

Also tonight, Fishbone returns to Omaha, this time to The Waiting Room with Roots of Creation. $15, 9 p.m.
