Spring is fast approaching, and this weekend in Centre County has chances to enjoy the outdoors, watch a film about the outdoors or listen to a variety of music.
‘Live the Stream’ encore screenings
The award-winning documentary film detailing the life and story of local fly fisherman Joe Humphreys will return to The State Theatre on Friday in honor of the film’s entry into the San Luis Obispo Film Festival in California. The film had its State College debut in January to a sold-out crowd, so here’s another chance to see it if you missed it the first time. Humphreys, who recently turned 90, will be in attendance for both shows. Shows will be at 3 and 7 p.m. Friday. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.thestatetheatre.org.
