Don't miss the new film Gravity, coming out this week. Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock delivers an incredible one-woman performance, portraying a medical engineer on her first space mission who is struck by disaster, overwhelmed by silence and struggles to overcome the terror of being lost in space.
Play Me, I'm Yours, is a collection of 75 pianos installed throughout Boston and Cambridge through October 14th.
British artist Luke Jerram brings his public piano installation to Boston, having already reached over two million people worldwide in cities from New York to Sydney. Located in public spaces throughout Boston and Cambridge, the pianos are available for anyone to play and enjoy. You'll find them on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Arts Academy, Harvard Office of the Arts and the Prudential Center.

Gravity opens in theaters Friday. Academy Award winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in a heart-pounding thriller that puts you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. A brilliant medical engineer is on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving the team completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling into blackness.
A visit to a very formidable fashion archive at Lasell College; a conversation with the creators of the international art installation project Play Me I'm Yours, which places pianos in public spaces inviting anyone to create music; a look at the work of Georges Braque, a contemporary of Pablo Picasso and one of the co-founders of Cubism; and a feature on Jake Shimabukuro, who has taken the ukelele to new heights.
