The Little Theatre brings a roster of reel wonders to Rochester, with a slate of films running the gamut from quirkily mainstream to accessibly indie. Cinephiles can nab tickets (evening showings: $8, weekend matinees: $6, seniors: $5, children 5–12: $5, and students on Sun.–Thurs.: $5) to any number of upcoming features appearing on The Little's five flickering screens, such as the risqué Ewan McGregor dramedy Beginners or the sardonic sojourn documented in acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom's The Trip. A slew of other silver-screen selections are sure to satisfy moviegoers from all walks of taste. The Little's 70-seat, jazz-infused café pitches in to delight the less movie-centric senses of taste, spidey, and smell, with its eye-fetching collection of local artwork and appetizing menu of rich quiches ($8) and grilled paninis ($9). A fluid fleet of specialty coffees ($1.50–$3.75), globetrotting vinos ($6/glass, $18.50/bottle), and sudsy brews ($3.50–$4.50) lithely impart an impressive cineaste vocabulary sure to impress neighboring critics and wide-eyed ushers.
Canoes float under a sunny sky, kayakers speed along lush riverbanks, and standup paddleboards engage core muscles in adrenaline-pumping workouts. With dozens of watercraft for rent and sale, BayCreek Paddling Center's team brings aquatic adventures like these to life. Their staff members, which range from young enthusiasts to 30-year industry veterans, launch customers into Irondequoit Creek, where they can float amid an orchestra of bird songs and opera-trained fish. In addition to rentals, the staff guide activities. Aboard their various watercraft, ACA and BCU instructors lead lessons and nature tours that wind through glacier-carved terrain and former Seneca Native American lands.

At Rock Ventures, climbers of all ages and experience levels scale challenge-filled walls lining the 18,000-square-foot facility. Classes impart students with surefooted spirit and fundamental climbing skills such as anchoring the rope for comrades. In addition to individual challenges, the center hosts several group events, ranging from team-building weekends to kids' birthday parties and summer camps. Rock Ventures grants discounted admission to veterans and their families with advance reservation on Saturday mornings, and helps disabled climbers conquer the rocks by using block-and-tackle systems to hoist themselves up.
Owner Kent Winchester informs his work at Rock Ventures with a multifaceted history of leadership and team-building experience, including a stint in the Peace Corps.
Amid an expansive dance floor with columns wrapped in lights, instructors teach many styles of rug-cutting, designing lessons to get students of all ages boogying. Seven days a week, visitors can find the studio bustling with group classes, drop-in classes, and private lessons. The full calendar even includes open social dances that offer a quick lesson on a specific style before setting groups free to put their own spins on the steps. In addition to set classes, special workshops and guest teachers stir a dose of specialty wisdom into the studio's full agenda book.
Atman Yoga Studio's Enrique A. Fulchi—a native of Lima, Peru, and a devoted yoga instructor—guides students through 90-minute classes that aim to strengthen the body, increase flexibility, and open the mind. The Vinyasa flow class caters to all experience levels and replaces yoga's traditional spinal-alignment exercises—duct-taping tetherball poles to the back—with a steady series of back bends, inversions, and balancing poses supported by steady breathing exercises. The Ashtanga flow class accommodates more practiced yogis, and private sessions with Enrique help to deepen practice with focused tutelage. In all classes, Enrique may modify postures with props to better match students' goals and heighten the realism of their Shakespearean soliloquies.
