Check It. Weekend To Dos.

Whether the weekend brings rain or shine, a trip to the movie theater is likely in the cards for me.

Out this weekend:

Hereafter (Oct. 22) -- Matt Damon, Bryce Dallas Howard, dir. Clint Eastwood

Matt Damon as a psychic with a website. Eastwood is a fantastic director, so as silly as this one looks based on the trailer, I'll give it a try.

Conviction (Oct. 15) -- Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell, Melissa Leo, dir. Tony Goldwyn

Based on a true story of a woman who puts herself through law school to represent her imprisoned brother.

Stone (Oct. 7) -- Robert De Niro, Ed Norton, Milla Jovovich, dir. John Curran (We Don't Live Here Anymore, The Painted Veil, and upcoming The Beautiful and the Damned)

A messy love triangle between a convict, his wife, and his parole officer. Curran directed Norton beautifully in 2006's The Painted Veil, and I'm looking forward to seeing another of their collaborations.

The above three films are all playing at ArcLight Hollywood. Info:

If you're in the mood for some live entertainment, on Sunday night, Glendale's own Michael Runion will be at the Echo opening for Gold Motel. Runion has worked with Rilo Kiley among other L.A. bands, and was a onetime member of The Elected. All ages. $8 advance, $10 day of show, tickets available on Sunday October 24 6:00 p.m.

Vintage fun to stay in for on Sunday evening: Viva Las Vegas (1964, Elvis Presley, Ann-Margret) on TCM, October 24 7:00 p.m.
