You can stream Dance With No Dominion from the Northwest Film Forum this weekend. 

Fri, July 24-26
Dance With No Dominion
The Northwest Film Forum partners with AIDS Memorial Pathway to offer “To Remember,” a series honoring work created in response to the AIDS epidemic of the early 1980s. Dance With No Dominion opens with performances from Seattle-area dancers and includes clips from Test, a film about how a San Francisco dance company dealt with anxiety around AIDS in 1985. The show closes with a rendition of “No Dominion,” choreographed by Ian Horvath, who died of the disease in 1990. Tickets are sold on a sliding scale.

Twisted Flicks Online
Billed as a show for all ages, Jet City Improv replaces the sound of B-list and retro movies with improvised music, sound effects, and dialogue using Twitch audience suggestions. This week it’s Earth vs. the Spider, a 1958 film about a group of teenagers tasked with protecting their bucolic town from—you guessed it—a giant spider. Ticket donation prices start at $5, and viewers are encouraged to join 30 minutes before showtime to throw down on improv ideas. 7pm

Fair warning: This rhythm and blues band could turn your living room into a dance floor, so prepare accordingly. Even though the Royal Room remains closed, the Columbia City lounge continues to host their Staycation Festival, a series of weekly streaming shows airing Wednesdays and Sundays through the summer. Links to donate directly to the musicians will be available during the show. 3:30pm

The River That Made Seattle
The Seattle Public Library hosts a virtual conversation with author BJ Cummings, chairwoman of the Duwamish Tribe Cecile Hansen, and Seattle Times reporter Lynda Mapes to talk about this historical account of the Duwamish River. Detailing the river’s early existence as a source of food to a more recent Superfund site, Cummings’s book is a call for environmental restoration. 7pm
