Everyone Runs, Everyone Walks is a local group that puts on races for people of all fitness levels, from those who are brand-new to exercise to the most seasoned runners.

The Last Night of Ballyhoo. It’s 1939, and change is afoot all over the world. While Hitler is invading Poland on one side of the world, the Jewish community in Atlanta is making fervent preparations for Ballyhoo, a big cotillion ball that marks the social event of the year. The Freitag family is looking forward to finding some eligible bachelors for their two daughters to marry. But when a handsome bachelor who is also an Eastern European Jew enters the scene, the family is prompted to examine their biases, beliefs and Jewish identities. This comedy/drama won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Play. Saturday, Nov. 9 to Sunday, Nov. 24 with 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. showtimes. Tornabene Theatre, 1025 N. Olive Road. $15 students, $30 seniors/military/UA employees, $32 adults. Information.

American Dharma. Part of the Loft Film Fest, this screening is the Arizona premiere of documentarian Errol Morris’ new portrait of controversial Breitbart honcho, Trump advisor, “populist” warrior and (oddly enough) long-time movie-lover, Steven Bannon. Set in a Quonset hut set modeled after one of Bannon’s favorite films, Morris faces off with the alt-right icon, and questions him about the most “disturbing and divisive” milestones in his career. This documentary has also screened at New York, Toronto and Chicago film festivals. 2:45 Sunday, Nov. 10, and noon Monday, Nov. 11. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. Information.
