SATURDAY

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE: The Ed Wood-directed cult classic is revered and reviled for its low production values, lackluster acting and generally shoddy film work. It has been considered such an awful film, the Southeast Anchor Library, 3601 Eastern Ave., offers prizes to folks who can sit through it in its entirety. The film begins at 2 p.m. Saturday. This screening is free. Call 410-396-1580 or go to prattlibrary.org.

NIGHTLIFE '09: Raise your glass to celebrate Moveable Feast's anniversary at Grand Central, The Hippo, Club 1722, The Depot, The Drinkery, George's, Idle Hour and Leon's.
