Top 5 Things to Do This Weekend

Provided you can press pause on constantly fantasizing about Saturday's sure-to-be mesmerizing Jell-O wrestling event at Cave Creek Smokehouse, it's likely you'll notice that there's a ton of stuff going on this weekend (in addition to barely clothed girls duking it out in a pool of hospital food). Did that help? Good. Here are five more ways to spend your weekend.

5. Labyrinth Screening @ MADCAP Theaters Revisiting beloved media from your childhood can be a tricky endeavor. After all, some things will hold up and others don't pass the nostalgia fact check. Beauty and the Beast makes the cut, but For us, Jim Henson's Labyrinth is still as fun and entertaining as it was before we had the capacity to properly follow a plotline. Revisit your childhood (and the Bog of Eternal Stench) when Cult Classics presents a duo of Labyrinth screenings at MADCAP on Friday at 9 and 11 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $20.

4. Rosa de Dos Aromas @ FilmBar Fundación para las Artes Latinoamericanas (FALA) presents a production of Emilio Carbadillo's Rosa de Dos Aromas, the story of two seemingly different female inmates both working to have their similarly-shackled love interests released from behind bars. But, oh, there's a catch. Performances continue this weekend at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday at FilmBar. Tickets are $15.
