[Elvis lives!]

Syracuse author, film critic and playwright Doug Brode will speak about his newest book, Elvis Cinema and Popular Culture at 7 p.m. Wednesday Aug. 16, at Borders Books & Music, at Carousel Center. Elvis Presley died 29 years ago on that date at his Graceland home in Memphis, Tenn.

Meanwhile, Elvis fans can view two of the King's best films, and one of his worst, Saturday Aug. 5, at The Palace Theater, in Eastwood. Tickle Me, a 1965 groaner pitting Elvis against a bevy of no-name beauties at an all-girl dude ranch, screens at 11 a.m., followed by Viva Las Vegas with Ann Margret at 1:30 p.m., and the unforgettable Jailhouse Rock at 4 p.m. Hosted by the Syracuse B-Movie Festival, the Elvis fest continues at 11 p.m. with a performance by rocker Jeff Jones and the cult film Bubba Ho-Tepp at midnight.

Admission costs $10 for daytime screenings, and $5 for the 11 p.m. shows; 652-3868.
