Movies, concerts at fair
By MARK COLEMAN
It may take a few hours or it could
only take a few minutes-but even-
tually you're going to get bored with
what passes as "art" in the Ann Arbor
Art Fair. Fear not--there's a lot more
to do this week than gaze at turquoise
jewelry or velour landscape paintings.
The best entertainment bet among
the high-priced hype that dominates
this annual event are the free films.
Ann Arbor Film Co-op is offering
movies every night of this long, long
TONIGHT, AT 7 P.M., the co-op
features Nicholas Ray's bizarre Bigger
Than Life at 7 p.m. and the film adap-
tation of Hemingway's The Sun Also
Rises, starring Errol Flynn at 9 p.m.
Both are in Auditorium A, Angell Hall.
Tomorrow is French-with-English-
subtitles night, starting with Jane Fon-
da in the obscure but excellent The
Game Is Over and a three hour mon-
strosity called Celine and Julie Go
Boating at 8:15 p.m. These films are in
Auditorium A also-did I forget to tell
you the place isn't air conditioned?
Well, the Modern Language Bulding
is, and its huge Auditorium B will be the
scene on Friday in cool comfort for the
low-budget Canadian (that can't be as
bad as it sounds) Going Down the Road
at 7 and 10:20 p.m. In between is the
venerable Katherine Hepburn in
Christopher Strong at 8:40 p.m.
TWO JOHN FORD epics shown on
Saturday at MLB are Drums Along the
Mohawk at 7 p.m. and Young Mr. Lin-
coln at 9 p.m.
And if you don't like movies? Well
there are all kinds of free concerts
scheduled at various locations
throughout the fair. For information
regarding who's playing, where they're
playing and when, turn to the enter-
tainment schedule on page 16.
A number of local bars feature
musical entertainment, though they
will undoubtedly be hopelessly crowded
so it's best to go early. V
Perhaps the best part-of the Art Fair
is the spontaneous jams that
usually take place on the Diag: Last
year I heard everything from folk
music to African percussion ensembles
to free jazz sax players and howling
dogs. For once quantity overcomes
quality as far as the Art Fair is concer-
ned-if you don't like what's in front of
you there's always something different
a few steps away.
YOUR BEST BET for entertainment
during the Art Fair is another free
event-the Ann Arbor Summer Sym-
phony will perform in acoustically per-
fect Hill Auditorium tomorrow evening
at 8:30 p.m.
All kinds of entertainment can be
found along the pathways of the Ann
Arbor Art Fair. An open mind and a
comfortable pair of shoes are essential:

gearing up for the fair. Wilkinson's
Luggage Shop plans to put out half-

At Siegel's Men's Store, partner Doug
