Musically Speaking, a series of music-themed films curated and hosted by DJ Soul Sister at Antenna Gallery, continues on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. with the 1978 reggae film Rockers. Originally intended as a documentary, Rockers ended up as a narrative film that incorporates a lot of doc-style footage and features real-life reggae stars like Burning Spear, Gregory Isaacs, and Dillinger. Rockers can't match the brilliance of Jimmy Cliff's 1972 The Harder They Come, but it certainly captures something of a unique time and place. Admission is free and open to the public.
