Home Alone 2 Ice Cream Party at Alamo Drafthouse (Cedars)
How do you make your Monday not feel like a Monday? Throw in some all-you-can-eat ice cream, Macaulay Culkin and Joe Pesci into the mix. You can mess with a lot of things, but you can’t mess with kids on Christmas. — OM
AGFA Secret Screening at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)
Once a month Alamo Drafthouse will hold screenings of rare 35mm prints — everything from b-movies to classics. The thing is, you won’t know what movie they’ll be showing that night until the lights dim and the projectors start rolling. Good, bad, or otherwise, though, your tickets won’t cost a thing. — CG
Mike Lala at Deep Vellum Books
Poetry readings by 2016 Colorado Prize for Poetry winner Mike Lala, as well as Dallasites Paul Koniecki and MH Clay. — CG
