Events are on the thin side tonight since everyone’s probably out scrambling for last-minute gifts, but if you need a break, we still have a couple of ideas:

ArcLight is getting into the seasonal spirit by screening a few holiday gems on the big screen. Tonight, ArcLight Hollywood presents Love Actually, directed by Richard Curtis and starring Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and Emma Thompson, among others. This British romantic comedy works, intertwining several stories between mismatched couples. We especially love Colin Firth’s and Lúcia Moniz’s storyline, where she speaks no English and he speaks no Portuguese—but they figure things out anyway, 8 pm. Tickets: $13.50.

The Blind Boys of Alabama are a gospel institution that first formed in 1939. During the next several decades, the group earned four Grammy awards. These gospel legends return to Walt Disney Concert Hall tonight to perform Christmas carols and gospel classics. 8 pm. Tickets: $36-95.75.
