Vintage Grand Prix Invitational Car Show on Walnut Street; Balcony Big Band Plays Jergel’s (Mon., 7/11/16)

1) It’s Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix week with events going on through July 19. Tonight is the Invitational Car Show on Walnut Street. Here you’ll see a really cool collection of hot and historic cars. Walnut Street will be closed, so you can get a good gander as you stroll past these vintage automobiles. While there, enjoy dinner in one of the neighborhood’s fine establishments. 5 – 9 p.m. Shadyside.

2) The Balcony Big Band with a special guest will be hitting only high notes in a Monday night performance at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. The 18 member group makes a big, beautiful sound. Get in some Monday relaxation with good music. 7 p.m. No cover. 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale.

3) Central Intelligence Can you buy Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson as an overweight bullied high school geek? Well, if you want to enjoy this action comedy that’s part of the premise you gotta swallow. After those horrible school years, Johnson has become the most lethal agent at the CIA. Home for his class reunion, he meets up with Kevin Hart, former high school BMOC and now mild-mannered accountant missing the halcyon days of his youth. Johnson convinces him to help out on his latest assignment—busting an international crime cartel. Amy Ryan and Aaron Paul also star, with Rawson Marshall Thurber directing a script he co-wrote with Ike Barinholtz and David Stassen. For screens and times see Fandango. (TH)
