Anyone who’s ever wanted a Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle or worried about someone shooting their eye out with one can probably blame A Christmas Story. The movie follows the travails of poor sap Ralphie in his quest for the ultimate BB gun experience. The ArcLight Sherman Oaks is holding a 21+ screening tonight at 7:30 pm.

There's a meet-and-greet with Project Runway's Jerell Scott today until 7 pm at Jane Doe John Doe. Try on (and maybe buy!) pieces from his collection as well as other clothes from other Project Runway designers, including Leanne Marshall, Korto Momolu, Jerell Scott and Stella Barbarella. The website's not ready, so here's the addy: 8478 West Third St., across from the Beverly Center.

High School Musical – The Ice Tour takes to the rink at the Honda Center tonight at 7:30 pm. The Disney show does not feature Vanessa Hudgens or Zac Efron, but skaters embodying the spirit, songs and dance of the TV shows and movies are featured.

The Soweto Gospel Choir takes to the Walt Disney Concert Hall stage tonight at 8 pm. This awe-inspiring and uplifting South African ensemble offers audiences a program of traditional African and gospel music entwined with their spin on Christmas classics.

The monthly “Cartoon Dump!” show takes over the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood at 8 pm tonight. These are the cartoons, characters and videos that were not ready for Saturday mornings. “Hosted by Compost Brite, "Cartoon Dump!" boasts a beguiling cast of characters who will bring laughter and joy into the hearts of borderline schizophrenics and catatonic acidheads the world over. It's a kid's show that's not for kids, but for adults who are emotionally and developmentally damaged kids at heart.”
