Weekend Update: Saturday

Hirschfield Film Series presents Apocalypto Dana Auditorium, 3:00 to 5:30 and 8:00 to 10:30

Set in the ancient Mayan civilization, a man is captured by an invading force and taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression. Through a twist of fate and spurred by his love for his family, the captive escapes and makes a desperate attempt to return home. International star and Oscar-winning director Mel Gibson (Braveheart, The Passion of the Christ) creates another intense adventure spectacle. "The picture provides a trip to a place one's never been before, offering hitherto unseen sights of exceptional vividness and power." - Todd McCarthy, Variety. Nominated for three Academy Awards. In Maya with English subtitles. (Quoted from Middlebury Events Calendar)

Cyrus Chestnut Trio
Mead Chapel, 8:oo to 10:oo p.m.
Critic Lloyd Sachs writes of the "soulful thrusts, balletic flourishes, and unabashedly warm-spirited playing" of the Cyrus Chestnut Trio. Tickets: $15/12/5 (Quoted from Middlebury Events Calendar)

MCAB presents comedian Dan Ahdoot
McCullough Social Space UPDATE: 8:00 p.m.

Dan's standup act is based on his hilarious observations about everyday life as a young, hip kid fresh out of college, coupled with his upbringing as a 1st generation American. His stage-presence blends charm, likeabilty, and wit in a way that keeps crowds in stitches and at the same time, very comfortable. (Quoted from Middlebury Events Calendar)

Late Night 80s Video Dance Party
McCullough Social Space, 12:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.

You know the drill by now.
