Catch Tuesday Night Fever

Plus local music night and Avatar cinematographer speaks


DISCO FEVER: It may look slightly ridiculous now, but in 1977, "Saturday Night Fever" was the poop. If you're old enough, relive the excitement, if not, go way back in time to another era as the Music Box screens this iconic film. Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis, hosts of WBEZ-FM's Sound Opinions, will introduce the film. Bell bottoms highly encouraged.7:30 p.m., 3733 N. Southport Ave. $8

SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC: The Beetle gives a nod to local rockers with its weekly Local Tunes Tuesday event. If you're in a band, drop off a CD and they'll play it, if not, sit back and enjoy the best Chicago's underground music scene has to offer. The $4 Goose Island 312, $2 sliders, and as $2 bartender's choice shot ensure that even if the music is really bad, you'll find something to distract you. 4 p.m., 2532 W Chicago FREE

MEET THE AVATAR DUDE: Fresh from an Academy Award nomination this week as director of photography for the Avatar, cinematographer Mauro Fiore will be the featured speaker for Columbia College's Conversations in the Arts: Media in the 21st Century. 7 p.m., Film Row Cinema, 1104 S. Wabash
