    Nude Model Sketching

    Right, so you’re reading this because you saw “nude modeling” in the title, but then noticed the “sketching” and were still interested, because you’ve actually been wanting to capture an unclothed human figure on canvas or paper with pigments of one sort or another? Excellent – because this three-hour session happens at Atelier Dojo, the finest school of artistic realism in the city, run by painters Jennifer Balkan, Denise M. Fulton, and Karen Offutt. You don’t even have to be a student there: Show up anytime, use whatever supplies you need, and there’s only a $10 drop-in fee. – Wayne Alan Brenner
    Mondays. Through June 24

    Hyperreal Hotel: Bride of Chucky

    I’m biased here, see, because your ol’ pal James is a major fan of that evil doll Charles Lee Ray. What’s playing this coming Monday in the beautifully dank caverns of Hotel Vegas is the crown jewel of the Child’s Play franchise. This comedy-horror masterpiece takes the plastic-gut frenzy of Child’s Play 2 and smashes it straight into high-quality goth-girl aesthetics via the one, the only: Tiffany Valentine, played by the iconic Jennifer Tilly. Plus: Monday’s screening is presented by horror expert and frequent Weird Wednesday programmer Morgan Hyde, so you know this one’s a top-tier pick. Arrive early and grab a Hyperreal Hotel punch card to get yourself on the way to earning a free keychain. – James Scott
