What's Happening Inside & Out: Big Stars, Black Film Fest, The Nutcracker

Yes, the lockdown is coming, but that doesn’t mean the fun stops… it just moves back inside! It's getting cold anyway, y'all.

Catch a few films for us, by us, about us that you may not have seen before at the Gary International Black Film Festival… running virtually through the 20thand featuring a documentary on house music tonight, plus black animation and women in film.

Get in the holiday mood with a unique experience of the Nutcracker… the Joffrey Ballet is projecting the classic ballet on the side of the Merchandise Mart as part of Art on the Mart… and you can view it for free every night through December 30that 7 and 7:30pm along the Riverwalk on Wacker between Wells and Franklin.

& Tomorrow night at 8pm, catch Tracee Ellis Ross, Tyler Perry and JLo as they get big honors at E!’s People’s Choice Awards.

Whatever you choose, have fun and don’t let me EVER hear you say you don’t have anything to do!
