Thursday 28 – Sundance Square’s summer film series spotlights movies that celebrate a milestone anniversary this year. Tonight, Nora Ephron’s You’ve Got Mail, which was released 20 years ago this fall, will screen, and you can check to see that, yes, Dave Chappelle is actually in this remake of Ernst Lubitsch’s (superior) The Shop Around the Corner for the AOL age. The movie screens at 7:30pm at 4th & Main sts, FW. Admission is free. Call 817-255-5700.

Friday 29 – It’s a bit late to be doing a patch on Angels in America, but Hip Pocket Theatre is going to try it with A Fragile Dance of Elders  into the Great Beyond, a world premiere by Johnny Simons about angels tending to the seniors in a nursing home, with music by Claude Debussy. The show runs tonight thru Jul 22 at 1950 Silver Creek Dr, FW. Tickets are $5-20. Call 817-246-9775.

Call 817-200-7355.

Sunday 01 – It’s too hot to have an arts festival outdoors right now, so Stage West holds their M.A.D.E. (Music, Arts, Drinks, Eats) Festival inside their theater for the fifth year running.

Tickets are $19-55. Call 817-665-6000.

Tuesday 03 – The Dallas Wings are firmly in the middle of the pack so far this WNBA season, but to elevate themselves, they’ll have to beat the teams below them.
