Are you cool enough to know where the Plant is, but not too cool to admit your love for Winona Ryder? Then you’re the target market for what the underground loft space grandly terms the first annual Winona Ryder Film Festival. The 90s alt-icon’s seminal cinematic work will be screened from noon to midnight (the sweet spot of Beetlejuice-Heathers-Reality Bites gets started at 2:15). The Plant (secret location; ask your nearest hipster), 12 p.m.-midnight, free (organizers advise “BYO butt cushion”)
