Starting Friday and running through next Thursday evening, the Carolina Theatre in Durham is hosting screenings of “The Punk Singer,” Sini Anderson’s new documentary about Kathleen Hanna of the bands Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. The story of the multi-instrumentalist who was at the forefront of the ‘90s Riot grrrl movement is told through tons of vintage archival footage and vivid testimonies from the likes of Joan Jett, Carrie Brownstein (Sleater Kinney, “Portlandia”), Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and the Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz, who happens to be Hanna’s husband. Tickets are $9 ($7 for student/senior/military). Details: 919-560-3030 or www.carolinatheatre.org.
