Movies: "Safety Not Guaranteed"

 

“Wanted: Someone to go back in time with me.  This is not a joke.  You’ll get paid after we get back.  Must bring your own weapons.  I have done this once before.  SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED.”

 

That’s the classified ad that sets off the storyline of this sweet little indie, starring Aubrey Plaza, the taciturn April of TV’s “Parks and Recreation.”

Thousands turn out for first-of-its-kind concert in Portland

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - An afternoon concert on Portland's Eastern Prom drew out thousands of people.

The Prom is no stranger to crowds numbering in the tens of thousands, but that's typically for free shows like the fireworks display on the Fourth of July. Saturday's concert cost $70 for a "passport".

The concert marks one of only four North American stops for the popular band Mumford & Sons. Concert-goers NEWS CENTER spoke with say the exclusivity of the shows probably lead to the huge crowd.

The City regularly hosts musicians at any of a number of concert venues, but this marks the first time that a band has headlined outdoors on the Eastern Prom. 

Portland faced some difficulties juggling residents and ticket-goers, and making sure there would be ready access to water and regulations on alcohol.
