July 16 TREACHEROUS Jacksonville resident Jana Bradley has written and directed her first independent film, Treacherous. She partnered with award winning film crew, 3:16 Productions out of Orlando to film this movie. The story is about the long time friendship between Khouri Baxter (Kimberly Grant) and Saighe Baldwin (Alisha May) and Justice Evans (John W. Sloan, Jr.) who seduces both women. “It is a story of loss and redemption; self degradation and reclamation of self worth,” says Bradley. The music for the film was donated by local independent artists. You can see the trailer at www.treacherousthemovie.com. Treacherous will premiere at the Friday Musicale Auditorium (645 Oak St) on Friday, July 16 at 8 pm. Tickets are $25.

Summer Movie Classics at the Florida Theatre
The Florida Theatre originally opened in 1927, as Downtown Jacksonville’s fifteenth movie theatre. Now it is the city’s last remaining example of 1920’s fantasy architecture, and is one of only four remaining high style movie “palaces” built in Florida during this period. The theatre underwent a major restoration effort and re-opened its doors in 1983 and is now home to about 200 different events annually. This summer the theatre will again present classic movies on Sunday afternoons. What better location could you find to see a classic movie?
Tickets are $7 for a single admission or you can purchase a Movie Card for $40 allowing you 10 admissions. Movies are shown on Sunday afternoons at 2 pm.
Florida Theatre, 128 E. Forsyth St., 355-2787, www.floridatheatre.com
