Film screen­ings are per­fect for date night

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - THE GO GUIDE - Ben Crandell

You have erred, mis­spo­ken, for­got­ten, mis­took, in­sulted, re­fused, hurt, up­set, of­fended, slighted, snubbed and blun­dered. Again. Or you are about to. Re­mem­ber who we’re talk­ing about.

So you are in need of a date night to make up for your tres­passes. Or as down pay­ment for the fu­ture. Af­ter all, the NCAAs are get­ting re­ally good and MLB’s Open­ing Day is just around the cor­ner.

The folks at Cinema Par­adiso in Fort Laud­erdale have you cov­ered with this week­end’s pre­miere of the Court­yard Cinema se­ries, with a dif­fer­ent film screen­ing at sun­set in the John Mager Court­yard each night through Sun­day, com­plete with full bar and a ro­tat­ing lineup of food trucks. Guy’s gotta eat.

The se­ries’ open­ing week­end in­cludes films that you would never in your right mind watch, which is the whole point, you sen­si­tive guy, you. In­cluded are Richard Lester’s “Robin and Mar­ian” tonight, the Meryl Streep Abba-fest “Mamma Mia!” on Satur­day and the weepy Whit­ney Hous­tonKevin Cost­ner af­fair “The Body­guard” on Sun­day. Talk about tak­ing one for the team.

Not that she needs to know this, but tick­ets to th­ese 7:30 p.m. screen­ings are a mere $5. We men­tioned the bar and food truck, right? Info: FLIFF.com.

Love songs

Now, if you’ve re­ally screwed up, we di­rect you to the Earth, Wind & FireChicago dou­ble bill at 7:30 tonight at Per­fect Vodka Am­phithe­atre in West Palm Beach. Make it all spur-of-the-mo­ment, like: “Hey, honey, let’s groove tonight. I’m tak­ing you to see Earth Wind & Fire!” The spon­tane­ity will earn you enough points to watch the NCAAs right through fi­nals. Tick­ets are $18.95-$118 (plus fees) at Tick­et­mas­ter.com.
