5 Things to Do Today: "Straight to Hell" with Alex Cox, Holiday Talent Show, Graphic Novel Book Club, Movie Night at Le Voyeur and photos with Santa ...

By Volcano Staff on December 13, 2010

MONDAY, DEC. 13 >>>

1. See Straight to Hell Returns at the Grand Cinema in Tacoma. What? That's not good enough for you? OK - see Straight to Hell Returns at the Grand in Tacoma AND meet and discuss the film with famed director Alex Cox. Ask for anything else and you're just being greedy (though popcorn will be available).

2. Talent shows are awesome. And perhaps you haven't seen a good one since middle school. All the more reason to check out "Tacoma's Best Holiday Talent Show" at the Broadway Center tonight at 7 p.m. - brought to you by the Broadway Center's Ensemble 915. Expect audience participation and a gong.

3. New to the graphic novel game? An old pro? It really doesn't matter - Tacoma's Graphic Novel Book Club, which meets on the second Monday of every Month at 1022 South, has something for everyone. And guess what!?! It's the second Monday of the month! See what's up tonight, when the club discusses December's book - A Gods Somewhere by John Arcudi and Peter Snejbjerg.

4. It's movie night at Le Voyeur in Olympia.

5. According to the Volcano's impeccable collection of South Sound event info, until Thursday you've got a chance to meet - and have your photo snapped - with Santa Claus ... at the Commons at Federal Way of all places. Make today YOUR day for a session on Santa's lap. Open 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.
