This week in entertainment: Jan. 16-22

    Now that everyone has finished joining sororities and fraternities, we can turn back to more important things, like on-campus arts and culture. Fill your calendar with this week’s events.

    Jan. 20


    What’s a better way to start off the week than with some of the worst movies ever made? A&O Productions is hosting its annual 24-hour showing of B-movies. It’s perfect for when you feel like you really messed up that paper, because at least you didn’t make one of the worst movies of all time. 6 p.m., McCormick Auditorium. $30 for Northwestern students, with six-hour block tickets sold at the door for $5.

    The Dolphin Show: Little Shop of Horrors

    If bad movies aren’t your thing then try singing, man-eating plants. The 75th annual Dolphin Show, Northwestern’s nationally recognized student-run production, is opening this week with the Broadway musical Little Shop of Horrors. 7:30 p.m., Cahn Auditorium. $10 to $35. Also Jan. 21, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. and Jan. 22 at 2 p.m.

    Chicago(ish) spotlight: Andrew Bird with The Lumineers on the Cleopatra tour

    If you’re feeling a trip off campus to escape the work you have to do, go see multi-talented musician Andrew Bird (Music ’96) open for The Lumineers. Let the folk rock tunes soothe your mind and get your head straight for the rest of the week. 7 p.m., Allstate Arena (Rosemont). $29.50 to $203.
