The 1973 cult-classic The Harder They Come, which starred up-and-coming reggae star Jimmy Cliff (pictured) as, well, an up-and-coming reggae star named Ivan Martin, has been a staple of weed-smoke-filled midnight screenings for the last 40 years. To celebrate the start of its fifth decade, it's being released in a re-mastered version. Head to Hartford's Real Art Ways on Friday or Saturday (or both!) for a taste.
The Harder They Come
Sept. 6-7, 9:30 p.m., $4.50-$10, Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor St., Hartford, (860) 232-1006, realartways.org.
