11:50 A.M., 2:15, 4:35, 7 AND 9:30 P.M. DUNKIRK: Dunkirk is the story of the evacuation of more than 300,000 Allied troops (mostly British and French) from the beaches of Dunkirk, France, in the spring of 1940, following the Germans’ victories in the Battle of France. The events have been depicted on film before, perhaps most notably in the identically titled Dunkirk (1958) starring John Mills and Richard Attenborough, but it was vastly different from this version, with the military aspect only part of its story. It also cannot compare visually or emotionally to the new version. The Grand Cinema screens the film that Entertainment Weekly calls a “visceral, big-budget filmmaking that can be called Art. It’s also, hands down, the best motion picture of the year so far.” The Grand Cinema, Tacoma

8 P.M. THE DRUNK SHOW: Five comics perform a set each sober, and then while the other comics are performing they pound booze and return to the stage wasted to do another set. Jubal Flagg from Movin 95.5 FM tries to keep the thing flowing. Tacoma Comedy Club, Tacoma
