Swedish film and rebel bingo this weekend

To get you out of those what-should-we-do blahs

1) This Saturday, 11.12, 9p-12a, another Underground Rebel Bingo Club will be going down somewhere in the Union Square area. Tickets'll cost ya (not much), but these are crazy dance parties with bingo. Sounds great. Go to [via The Print Up]

2) The always interesting Spectacle Theatre (S. 2nd Street and Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn) is screening A Swedish Love Story (En K√§rlekshistoria) this weekend, at 9:30p on Saturday and 7:30p on Sunday. The screening Saturday will be followed by an afterparty at the Crown Vic. Tickets are $5. 

"Fifteen year-old Pär (Rolf Sohlman) and fourteen year-old Annika (Ann-Sofie Kylin) fall in love... around them swirl parents, friends, and rivals Рa series of microcosms that evoke a society apparently permissive, but secretly in tatters. Against the background of their developing romance, the thwarted emotions of the older generation are shown with a dramatic sense of disappointment and sympathetic insight. A major international hit when it was first released, this stunningly photographed portrait of Swedish life revels in the small moments that reveal bigger truths.
Unavailable on DVD in the US, we will be presenting a new HD version sent by director Roy Andersson."
