State Theatre 233 State St., Ann Arbor Greater Ann Arbor Area

The year was 1995. America was totally buggin’ over O.J. Simpson’s ill-fitting glove and reeling over the tragic Oklahoma City bombing, and, to make matters worse, a little dance called the “Macarena” was all the rage. Amid the horror of the aforementioned cultural touchstones was a little movie that almost didn’t happen. Enter Clueless, the groundbreaking teen rom-com that gave us Alicia Silverstone as Cher Horowitz, the Beverly Hills shopaholic and total romantic who proves she’s more than just a virgin who can’t drive. The film, which revolves around Cher’s enviable wardrobe and inner-circle, including new girl Tai played by the late Brittany Murphy, Stacey Dash as bestie Dionne, and the vampiric, never-aging Paul Rudd as her stepbrother and love interest, Josh. OK — so, it’s only sort of totally weird that Cher and Josh end up together, but by the looks of Pornhub’s most popular searches, the film was ahead of its time. More power to consensual step-sibling love. (734) 761-8667

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.
