Spaghetti Western Wednesdays

Every single Wednesday at Tin Pan Theater (except for Christmas Eve!) there is all-you-can-eat spaghetti, garlic bread and salad partnered with a damned ridiculous western from the late-'60s to the late '70s. Every week the film is a surprise, so when the lights go down and William Shatner comes up playing twin brothers (one of which is Native American!) or Lee Marvin appears being super racist, the audience can giggle in maniacal glee while their noodles fly free in the air. That was not a euphamism. Sometimes people get a little careless with their noodles. The spaghetti comes vegetarian style or with an added massive meatball. Your choice. No pressure.

Wed. through March. Doors at 6 pm. Tin Pan Theater. 869 NW Tin Pan Alley. $7.

Bolshoi Ballet Presents The Nutcracker

It's not Christmas without The Nutcracker or The Nutcracker without ballet or the ballet without the Bolshoi, so look how perfect this damn event is! Founded in the year of our lord 1776, the Bolshoi Ballet is considered one of the world's finest ballet companies, with such dancers as Maris Liepa and Nina Timofeeva. Also, the blond, long-haired villain from Die Hard The First was in there. If getting to see the Bolshoi Ballet do a live performance is the stuff of dreams, then head on down to the Regal and watch a filmed performance of everyone's most known- about ballet and get that pesky Culture checked off of your to-do list.

Sun., Dec. 21. 12:55pm. Regal Stadium. 680 SW Powerhouse Dr. $15-$18.

Sordid Lives

Part of the LGBT Stars and Rainbows film series, Sordid Lives is a cult classic in the LGBT community. The film (based on the hilarious play) follows a large Texas clan that comes back together after the elderly matriarch dies accidentally while fooling around with a much younger man. With classic staples of '80s and '90s television like Delta Burke, Olivia Newton-John, Beth Grant, Beau Bridges and many more recognizable faces, Sordid Lives plays like a campy and knowing version of August: Osage County, but with much less drama and tons more cattiness.

Mon., Dec. 22. 6:30pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub. 70 SW Century Dr. $5.
