Weekend update: Hooray for Hollywood!


Get your popcorn ready. In today’s Weekend section, Ann Hornaday looks at all of the movies due out this holiday season, from Meryl Streep tackling the role of Margaret Thatcher in ”The Iron Lady” to the return of the lovable Muppets.

Also in Weekend:

The Gurus compiled a list of the best events going on this weekend, including FotoWeek and its related events, the AFI’s European Film Showcase and FallFringe.

Mexican singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas is a megastar in Latin America, but she hasn’t bothered trying to cross over with an English-language album. Hear her instantly accessible and universal songs Wednesday at the State Theatre.

Also see record reviews from local rock trio More Humans, buzz indie band Wu Lyf, jazz saxophonist Miguel Zenon, ‘80s revivalists the Drums, and husband-and-wife soul duo Kindred the Family Soul.

Fritz Hahn takes a look at the recently redesigned Josephine, now with a sleeker and more modern look.

Grab lunch at Roti, the Chicago import offering up Mediterranean food assembled in the conveyor-belt fashion made popular by Chipotle.

What goes around, comes around, as they say. Signature Theatre delivers instant karma to those who volunteer, giving seats to people who help take tickets, check coats or usher people to their seats.

On their way south, Canadian geese often take a breather at the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware. Read up on how to plan a trip to see for yourself.

Michael O’Sullivan describes two recent performances by artist Agnes Bolt as “kind of funny and kind of creepy.”See why at Project 4, where the exhibit “Dealing” documents her recent performances, one of which included living in a translucent bubble.

Get the story behind choreographer David Dorfman’s new work, “Prophets of Funk,” a celebration of the music of Sly and the Family Stone and the “everday people” he championed.

And if you haven’t had enough movies information to process, we have all of the latest movie reviews, including “Tower Heist,” the action comedy about an all-star cast taking down a Madoff-like villain.
