Learn all the rules of the Five Minute Game OK, so the rules of the Five Minute Game are pretty simple: The fine folks at Cinefamily will show the first five minutes of a few obscure movies, and then the audience will vote on which one to watch in its entirety. Also, there will be BBQ.

Find your chill at the JazzReggae festival Listen, we’re not gonna tell you what to do, but... it’s sorta legal now, and, uh, it’s the last day of a long weekend, and this jazzy reggae fest is about as chill as it gets. Seems sorta smokey, too, no?

Scream to Carrie with horror fans at the Old Zoo The people who put on the Great Horror Campout have also been low-pro doing horror movie screenings at Griffith Park’s haunted, abandoned old zoo; they’re showing the original Carrie tonight, so bring along a bucket and some fake blood! (There are, of course, a ton more outdoor movies to choose from this week, too.)

Laugh a lot (hopefully) at the Big Fire Comedy Festival OK, this is sort of a new one: a multi-stage, camping-intensive comedy fest, with dozens and dozens of comics and sketch groups and podcast tapings... in the middle of the desert. The headliners aren’t huge (Brody Stevens, who you’ll recognize from @Midnight, is one of them) but that’s part of the joy: There’s definitely something to discover. And, worst case scenario, you get a camping trip in the desert.
