Head to the theater at 8 p.m. for the IMAX experience of the year in the movie “Deadpool”. It is a movie that is wildly inappropriate, lots of crude humor, some nudity, and changes the superhero movie script. Also this movie will make you never see unicorns the same way ever again. Go see it, I dare you.

Dumbledore’s Army is meeting at Barns & Noble at 7 p.m. Seriously. It’s a Harry Potter book/universe club. Brush up on your defense against the dark arts and join the resistance against the Dark Lord.

If you’re wanting to get in on some artsy fartsy action and learning more about Alaskan culture and wildlife this Thursday, I suggest checking out Art in the Arctic. This event is happening at Venue from 6 – 9 p.m., and should include content about the Arctic, Kanuti, and Yukon Flats National Wildlife refuges. Pretty neato. Also they serve coffee and stuff.

It is the 4th Annual Winter Dance Weekend by Contra Borealis! Best part about contra dancing is its super fun and absolutely zero dance experience needed. All instruction will be on site during the event. Its at Pioneer Park Dance Hall from 7:30pm-10:30pm and $15 for students. Wear something comfortable that you can move in and bring a water bottle; you’re bound to have a great time. (And, if you really like it there’s a cool techno version at 10:45pm-12am on Saturday…its going to be awesome!)

Today is a perfect day to check out the Sunday lineup on KSUA! Programming starts at 11:00 a.m. and continues non-stop until 10:00 p.m. Classic vinyl, world music, sets by the Grateful Dead, and more all await you. Speaking as an unbiased party*, it seems like a great time to fire up the ol’ FM radio. (*: I am actually a completely biased party.) -Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor
