Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Us screenings with speaker Tananarive Due

Fri., Nov. 22, 6 p.m.
The Cube 3711 Woodward Ave., Detroit Greater Detroit Area


In 2017, Jordan Peele, former MadTV member and one half of the Comedy Central comedy sketch duo Key & Peele, redefined the horror genre with his Academy Award-winning directorial debut, Get Out. The film drew praise for its combination of classic horror, some of the best plays from the contemporary psychological thriller playbook, and a dash of benevolent racism, and led to Peele’s follow-up, 2019’s Us, which finds a family on a nightmarish, unnerving, and totally fucked-up vacation. The Cube will host back-to-back screenings of Peele’s films, which will be annotated by award-winning author Tananarive Due, who teaches a course titled “The Sunken Place: Racism, Survival, and the Black Horror Aesthetic” online and at UCLA.

Planetarium show: Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon

Fridays, Saturdays, 9 p.m. Continues through Dec. 21
Cranbrook Institute of Science 39221 Woodward, Bloomfield Hills Greater Birmingham Area


Per the program description, this is not the laser Floyd of yesteryear. In fact, there’s not a single laser to be found. Cranbrook Institute of Science’s month-long Dark Side of the Moon planetarium engagement is more of a visual interpretation of one of the most influential records of all time. By the looks of the trailer, the planetarium show is more M.C. Escher meets the party lighting section of Spencer’s Gifts meets LSD — all of which make for a great trip into Pink Floyd’s magnum opus on depravity, human fragility, corporate greed, and mental illness.
