The Room with Tommy Wiseau

Fri., Jan. 18, 12 a.m. and Sat., Jan. 19, 12 a.m.

While there are people who still confuse the Academy Award-winning Brie Larson-led movie "Room" with Tommy Wiseau’s cinematic disaster-piece "The Room," there are hordes of people who live and die by three words: “Oh hai, Mark!” Celebrating 16 years as the best worst movie ever made, The Room, if nothing else, is a midnight movie classic complete with its own The Rocky Horror Picture Show-esque audience participation cues to throw plastic spoons, footballs, and repeat lines that have little relevance to the plotless-plot. Wiseau, the film’s writer, director, and geographically confused vampiric star, will emcee the back-to-back screenings with a Q&A that will likely complicate everything you already know about this work of madness. $15

The Music of John Coltrane

Fri., Jan. 18, 8 p.m.

Pioneer and saxophonist John William Coltrane was just 40 years old when he died — and yet, he managed to leave behind an incomparable legacy. He was even adopted as a saint and is actively worshipped at the Yardbird Temple turned Coltrane Church in California. Few are better suited to pay tribute to Coltrane’s iconic body of work than the musicians selected for the DSO’s Music of John Coltrane event. Poncho Sanchez who, for more than three decades, has married traditional, gritty jazz with Latin American and South American influences, will join revered saxophonist and Detroit-native James Carter in celebrating Coltrane’s contributions to jazz and music at large. $19+

Entering its 14th year, the fest will switch to a four-weekend, totally free admission format this year, continuing the tradition of wintery, family-friendly programming full of marshmallow-roasting, ice sculptures, free ice skating (on the first and last weekends), zip-lining, a Polar Plunge to support the Special Olympics, and the return of a festival favorite, the 30-foot slide. This year’s musical lineup welcomes headliners Thornetta Davis and Laith Al-Saadi, DJs as part of the Movement Music Festival showcase, as well as 30 other artists. free

Annica Cuppetelli: Measures of Constriction

Interested in how fashion is tailored to constrict the female figure and ultimately, to transform it, the artist borrows techniques and materials from garment-making to create forms that evoke fashion but function instead as sculpture and space. Free admission

Rent

Tuesdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Continues through Jan. 20

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 525,600 (x 20) minutes since a little-known composer unleashed one of the most influential musicals in the history of American theatre. Celebrating 20 years, Jonathan Larson’s Rent continues to preach love, diversity, and creativity in spite of circumstance. The rock opera has scored a Pulitzer Prize and four Tony Awards, and has received the Hollywood treatment with a film starring Rosario Dawson — and now, a stunning 20th-anniversary production. Described as a “re-imagining of Giacomo Puccini’s opera, La Bohème,” Rent tracks one year in the lives of seven New York City artists and dreamers struggling to live life as their truest selves among the HIV/AIDS crisis. Opening night performance begins at 8 p.m. $39

Michigan Central Station Winter Festival

Starts Jan. 18. Mondays-Sundays, 5:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 27

Ford Motor Co. is celebrating its recent acquisition of the old Michigan Central Station with a winter festival set to coincide with the North American International Auto Show. Organizers say to expect a 3D-light show projected onto the historic building's facade, live painting, ice carving, fire pits and s'mores, and food trucks. History buffs, take note: The company will also display artifacts that have been scrapped, stolen, or otherwise removed from the long-abandoned train station, which have been coming out of the woodwork in recent months — including the once grand train station's historic clock that was anonymously given to the company after it purchased the building.
