At the Arthouse

When you're looking for something more than the multiplex


There's a whole lotta Ramones going on this weekend, including tribute bands at the Happy Dog on Saturday and special theme sandwiches at both Melt Bar & Grilled locations all weekend. Best of all, there's a screening of the band's 1979 classic movie at midnight on Saturday. Show up at the Capitol Theatre in a leather jacket that looks like Joey Ramone's, or a satin one like Riff Randall's, and you'll score free popcorn. Gabba gabba hey! At midnight Saturday, February 19. — Michael Gallucci
