Terry Rea and James Parrish are two of my favorite Richmonders. Both have spent their respective decades in the city making life more interesting. Parrish helped start the James River Film Festival and Rea owned and operated the independent movie house the Biograph Theatre on Grace Street. These two saints of cinema have joined forces to create the Bijou Film Center, an ongoing project to establish a 100- to 120-seat, storefront movie theater in the Downtown Arts District. To kick off the Bijou’s fundraising drive to launch its film transfer business, they’re holding Music, Movies and Magic at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery on Sunday, May 17. The variety show will feature performances by local music groups the Red Hot Lava Men, Happy Lucky Combo and Avers, along with film screenings of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton works, magic shows by John Smallie and a raffle. The family-friendly fundraising frolic runs noon to 6 p.m. Free. bijoubacklight.com.
