Jan. 6: Frankenstein
Tonight at 6:30 you can attend a screening of Frankenstein at The National Theatre. When Dr. Frankenstein sends his grotesque-looking creation out into the world, the monster is met with cruelty wherever he goes. All of that negativity makes the Creature increasingly determined to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Tickets are free and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis 30 minutes before show-time.

Jan. 6-26: No Room for Doubt
You can head to the Athenaeum in Alexandria to see No Room for Doubt: Abstract Works on Wood, Canvas, and Paper by Kristen Hayes. The exhibit features paintings, monoprints and mixed-media work inspired by spiritual growth, philosophy and creation. Curator Schwanda Roundtree says Hayes’ recurring use of circles and light represents energy, and is intended to make that which seems invisible visible. There will be a talk with the artist and curator on January 12 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
