Wednesday 01 – TV’s Westworld has made Evan Rachel Wood famous, but she’s been doing good work on TV and movie screens since before she was a teenager. In the 2007 musical film Across the Universe, you can hear her sing Beatles songs, including taking lead on a version of “Because” that’s better than the original. The movie screens at 7pm at AMC Parks at Arlington, 3861 S Cooper St, Arlington, and AMC Grapevine Mills, 3000 Grapevine Mills Pkwy, Grapevine. Tickets are $5.50-8. Call 817-505-4519 or 972-539-5909.
Thursday 02 – Adam Ray has an impressive movie résumé, having scored roles in The Heat, Spy, and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. He’ll be at Hyena’s Comedy Nightclub all weekend, but tonight’s show is free, so you can check out his comedy stylings when he’s solo at 425 Commerce St, FW. Tickets are free-$15 + two-item purchase. Call 817-877-LAFF.
Friday 03 – So far, we’ve had scant information on Loop the Loop, the world premiere by Lake Simons and Dan Dyer that’s opening this weekend at Hip Pocket. Still, given the theater troupe’s history, we can probably expect roller coaster and carnival imagery and more music than dialogue. The show runs today thru Aug 26 at 1950 Silver Creek Dr, FW. Tickets are $5-20. Call 817-246-9775.
