Film Screening
Don't give up on Brewvies yet, even with its legal woes. It's still the best place to see notable film over a glass of beer. No, you won't be watching Deadpool, but here's a chance to expand your mind. Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Reimagining Lincoln Center and the Line shows how this interdisciplinary design studio challenged the boundary between public and private in a rebirth of urban spaces. The project transformed New York's prestigious Lincoln Center and the industrial High Line for new and unexpected participation in space. The film also profiles Diller Scofidio + Renfro, known first for its audacious art installations. Brewvies Cinema Pub, 677 S. 200 West, 801-532-7500, April 28, 6:30 p.m., free, no registration required,

Arts Center Walking Tour
You might feel like you've been there already, what with all the publicity surrounding the new Eccles Performing Arts Center. But now you'll have a chance to see it close up and personal. A Free Walking Tour of Utah's Premier Performing Arts Centers gets you inside the minds of the architects who not only met demanding technical requirements, but managed to embody the art of architecture and contribute to the urban fabric. You'll learn about the design and impact of the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, J.L. Quinney Capitol Theatre, the new Eccles Performing Arts Center and iconic Abravanel Hall. Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, 138 W. Broadway, 801-532-1727, April 29, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., free, register at

Spy Hop Benefit
In its 2016 Annual Benefit: Make Believe, Utah's only youth media arts organization highlights how anything is possible in the world of creativity. To showcase its programs, students will present stories on the impact Spy Hop has made in their lives. The Musicology program's band, Midnight Paper Heist, will be performing a set of live original music. Four new films about self-discovery and overcoming tremendous odds, either physically or emotionally will be shown from Spy Hop's PitchNic film program. All proceeds raised during the silent auction and live giving opportunities go directly to supporting the young people who attend Spy Hop's programs in film, audio, music and design. Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, 138 W. 300 South, 801-532-7500, April 28, 6:30-9:30 p.m., $75, 21+ only,

De-cluttering Event
Yup, it's spring and that means it's time to clean out your home and start over. The Container Store and Goodwill donation centers are giving you an opportunity to do just that with their Kiss Clutter Goodbye Weekend. Goodwill will be on hand in the parking lot or inside the store—to pick up your donations of new or gently used clothing, textiles, small appliances and household goods (no mattresses, furniture, chemicals or paint). With a $5 donation at checkout, you'll receive a free bag to help you stay decluttered throughout the year. There will also be prizes and expert demonstrations of decluttering solutions. The Container Store at Fashion Place Mall, east side, 6191 State St., Murray, 1-888-266-8246, April 30-May 1, noon-4 p.m., free/$5 donation,
