- Pleased to Meet Me (October 10 at 7 p.m., The Loft Cinema): Academy Award–nominated songwriter Aimee Mann and folk-legend Loudon Wainwright III star in the story of a farfetched scheme to draw out a reclusive theramin master with a band of mismatched musicians—based on the This American Life story “Everyone Speaks Elton John.”
