MOVIES

‘Killer Klowns From Outer Space’

Some movies are so cinematic, so spectacularly crafted, that they demand to be seen on a big screen. “Killer Klowns From Outer Space” is not one of those movies. The 1988 cult classic, which follows, well, a group of killer klowns from outer space, still deserves to be seen in public — as all of the best worst films do. See it at 9:15 p.m. Monday at the Beverly Theater. Tickets are $13; thebeverlytheater.com.

MUSIC

Sumac

Featuring current and former members of heavy music heavy hitters such as Russian Circles, Isis, Botch, Old Man Gloom and others, post-metal supergroup Sumac boasts a pedigree that is almost as massive as its sound — almost. The band’s absolutely crushing new album “The Healer,” with only four songs in 75 minutes, is one of the most awesomely overwhelming releases of the year. See Sumac flatten Vegas at 8 p.m. Sunday at Backstage Bar & Billiards, 601 E. Fremont Street. Tickets are $20; seetickets.us.
