Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun-filled weekend in St. Louis. If you are still pulling your plans together for the weekend, here are a few suggestions to help.
St. Louis International Film Festival | November 2 – 12

Schlafly’s Full Moon Festival | November 4
Join Schlafly by the fire for their Full Moon Festival. Cheers to the season with Schlafly fall beers, plenty of roasted pigs and live music all under the full moon.
Thomas Struth Nature & Politics | November 5 – January 21
Erase absolutely any preconceived notion you may have formed on the basis of the title. Traveling from the Museum Folkwang in Essen, Germany, this exhibit of Struth’s stunning large-scale photographs mixes images of robotics labs, nuclear fusion centers, and aeronautical research laboratories with shots of aquariums, theme parks, and the battle-ravaged landscapes of the Left Bank. Shooting over the past decade on pretty much every continent, the German photographer seeks to expose how we interact and live in increasingly manufactured environments and the tension it creates in us as we ponder what’s real—and what’s surreal.
Cirque du Soleil Crystal — A Breakthrough Ice Experience | November 4 – 5
Specifically created for arenas, the state-of-the-art production includes skating and sliding, plus acrobatic feats. Crystal “follows a young woman who shatters through reality to reach a surreal world filled with possibility. Beneath the surface, she pursues the life that has been glistening within. Sometimes, we must first leave solid ground to find our true footing.
The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis Presents Hamlet | November 3 – 5
For the first time in its 51-year history, The Rep will produce Hamlet. Spurred on to vengeance by the ghost of his father, Prince Hamlet hovers in limbo between bloody retribution and madness. Potentially fatal indecision delays his every step. With its profound soliloquies, complexly shaded characters and brutal plotting, it’s Shakespeare’s most enduring tragedy.
