Bars are the world's Temples of Emotion. Think about it: Where else do we connect with who we really are inside? In bars, we laugh about our problems and drown them too. Relationships are broken in bars, and lovers are made. When we step into those dark rooms and our minds are set at ease -- we become passengers on a journey that can take us just about anywhere.

Come to think of it, there is somewhere else where all those things happen: the movies. Yep, good cinema serves as a direct conduit into our emotions. So it's fitting that Sunday night, you can watch two deeply emotional films in -- of all places -- a bar. Come check out Stage 84 (9118 W. State Road 84, Davie) as it hosts its second-ever Indie Film Night.

The first film on the docket is Broken Flowers, Jim Jarmusch's poignant tale about a ladies man (Bill Murray) who finds himself alone after a lifetime of lovers. Stick around afterward for the opposite emotional spectrum in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. That way, when you leave the bar in tears of laughter, you can tell everyone, "It's only a flesh wound!"

The films start at 6 p.m. sharp. A $10 cover gets you one drink (beer, wine, or soda) and another movie must -- popcorn. Visit
