Three non-mainstream flicks you shouldn't miss—plus everything else showing locally

Director Erich Weiss will be on hand for a screening of Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry, a documentary about Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, the legendary tattoo artist whose work appeared on the bodies of thousands of soldiers during World War II (and beyond, of course). Based in Honolulu, Collins’ work was a blend of American folk art and Japanese artistry, and his parlor was the place to go when the sailors wanted to get stewed, screwed and tattooed. The film screens at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, at the Ken Cinema. Tickets can be obtained at www.horismoku.com.
