A Black Carpet experience for Black Panther
Past Event

Black Panther Experience

Black Panther Experience

A private screening of Marvel’s new superhero film, Black Panther. This is a Black Carpet experience, so make sure you are picture-perfect in your African-inspired attire. Happy-hour gathering at the theater’s reserved lounge at 6 p.m.; seating at 7 p.m. Sponsored by San Diego Melanin, “Connecting the community of young professionals of color in the greater San Diego area.”


Past Event

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey

Your first introduction to Lana Del Rey may have been six years ago, when Saturday Night Live took a chance on the mostly unknown singer with only a couple of singles and self-produced videos to her name. Her aloof, 1940s starlet demeanor and attire didn’t go over well with many viewers, but there was no denying that those two hypnotic, dreamy tracks, “Blue Jeans” and “Video Games,” were like nothing else on the airwaves. Her fifth full-length, Lust for Life, featured collaborators the Weeknd and Stevie Nicks. The tour hits Valley View Casino Center on Thursday. Colombian-American R&B singer Kali Uchis opens.

The Globetrotters take on the Washington Generals. The game could go either way.
Past Event

Harlem Globetrotters

Harlem Globetrotters

2018 marks the debut of the Flying Globies, an acrobatic trampoline dunk team. The tour also marks the return of the Globetrotters’ longtime nemesis, the Washington Generals. After a longstanding series in which the Generals lost approximately 14,000 times, the team is back from a two-year hiatus to focus on one goal, to beat the Globetrotters.


With Vietnamese singers and performers, lion-dancing, a phở-eating contest...

The one time of the year you can take your dog into the Botanic Garden without getting in trouble
Past Event

Paw Walk in the Garden

Paw Walk in the Garden

Follow a 5K walk through the 37-acre garden with your dog(s) in tow, the one time of the year you can take your pooch into the Botanic Garden. The route winds through the garden areas including California Native Plants, Australia, the Canary Islands, Hawaii, Bamboo, Tropical Fruit, and Palm Canyon. There will be pet products, food for people, treats for dogs, lots of information for dog owners, and many dogs and puppies. The promoters say, “It’s not a race — walkers can cover the full 5K/3.1-mile course, but that’s optional. And you don’t need a dog to participate. There are plenty of dogs there to pet. But there’s a limit of two dogs per person. Really. We mean it. No more than two.”


Uncle Vanya

Uncle Vanya

Imagine you and your sister slaved your entire lives, before sunup to past sundown, to keep a famous scholar’s estate going. And then suddenly you realize you’ve been duped. All those years, all the toil — for what? Through March 11 at the Old Globe in Balboa Park.


Movie

Early Man

thumbnail

Clearly and weirdly blind to the limitless potential afforded by an animated feature set during the dawn of man, the usually imaginative Nick Park (<em>Chicken Run, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit</em>) squanders 90 minutes sketching a wearisome soccer match between the Stone Age and the Bronze World. Add to this a host of repulsively designed characters (Shrek & Co. are Disney bunnies compared to Park’s cookie-cutter band of stop-motion Neanderthals), and you’re stuck with a feature that makes <em>The Flintstones</em> look like the Rite of Spring passage in <em>Fantasia</em>. The pun-fueled dialogue is a perfect match for the visual ugliness, making it only fitting that Early Man steals from Youngman. There are jokes here — the Chief’s demand that his underlings start mining ore is met with, “Or what?” — that would make Henny gag. It’s not only destined to top this year’s 10 Worst list, it also qualifies as one of the most unendurable cartoons ever to come from a major animator.

Early Man

Wallace and Gromit, Nick Park’s stop-motion iteration of man and man’s best friend, debuted nearly 30 years ago.

Now we have the same-but-different team of Dug and Hognob in Park’s latest, Early Man, opening this week.
