In theaters this weekend is the critically acclaimed “All the Money in the World” rated R, about the story of the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather Jean Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom.

4. Las Vegas entertainers "The Rat Pack is Back" are coming to Miami for the Buffalo Run Casino NYE 2018 Celebration Sunday, Dec. 31. Relive the days of the Rat Pack with Las Vegas’ most famous entertainers and their live big band. It's no magic trick, but when David DeCosta (Frank), Drew Anthony (Dean), and Kyle Diamond (Sammy) hit the stage, it’s there—the same magic that filled the room when these three icons performed at the Sands during the ’60s and ’70s.
