Boy Erased: Lucas Hedges stars at Jared Eamons, son of a Baptist preacher (Russell Crowe) and a self-style hairdresser (Nicole Kidman). The film begins in medias res, with Jared entering into his first day at the Love In Action gay conversion therapy program. Chief therapist Victor Sykes (Joel Edgerton) tells the group that their sexuality is a choice, influenced by poor parenting. He instructs them to perform harsh “moral inventories” of themselves and their families, and requires them not to tell anyone else of what occurs in the sessions. What could go wrong? Written and directed by Edgerton, the film is based on Garrard Conley’s 2016 memoir of enduring this psychological horror.
Details: 7 and 9:15 p.m. at Princess Theatre (10337 82 Ave.), $11 adult, $8 students/seniors
The Tenors: Three handsome bucks from across Canada — Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters and Clifton Murray — are here again with a seasonal twist to their operatic pop act, Tuesday’s show called Home for the Holidays: Christmas Classic and the Hits. Their songs will range from classical composer César Franck’s Panis angelicus to Leonard Cohen’s just-as-moving Hallelujah. The boys have played for a number of planet-famous ladies, including Oprah Winfrey and Queen Elizabeth II — so why not add your someone you love to that list? Still lots of seat available. (PS: In related news, Il Divo just announced a concert at the Jube March 10 — tix on sale 10 a.m. Friday through Ticketmaster.)
Details: 8 p.m at the Jube (11455 87 Ave.), $49 and up at ticketmaster.ca
Crane Kick on Jasper Avenue: Here’s a quick and easy thing to see — don’t miss Alex Labarda’s painting Crane Kick: Love on the Sunshine Coast 2018 in the ArtHole Window beneath Jobber on Jasper Avenue. ArtHole is an excellent initiative putting local art in an otherwise unused space — it’d be terrific to see more of these in some of the dead windows downtown, all it took here is an easel, a curtain and a little will. Keep up the good work, Jobber!
Details: any time, day or night at ArtHole (10520 Jasper Ave.), no charge
