• Warhol on film: Concord is getting in on the action with Manchester’s Currier Museum of Art. Red River Theatres, the relatively new nonprofit movie theater in Concord, is screening Andy Warhol’s 1965 film, The Life of Juanita Castro, Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 6 p.m. Sharon Matt Atkins, the Currier curator for the museum’s special exhibit “Andy Warhol: Pop Politics,” will introduce the film and lead a discussion following it. According to Red River, it’s rare to watch Warhol’s films, because they are only available on 16mm. Tickets cost $5, although admission is free for Red River or Currier members. Back at the Currier, a talk with the New Hampshire Political Library on “Campaigning with Pop Art: A Discussion of Political Campaigns of the Late 20th Century,” is planned for Thursday, Nov. 20, at 4:30 p.m. Warhol’s portraits of political figures are on view at the Currier. The line-up includes political analyst Dean Spiliotes (NHPoliticalCapital.com). It’s free with admission. The Currier is at 150 Ash St. (www.currier.org, 669-6144) and Red River Theatres is at 11 South Main St. (669-6144).
