In their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest 4 Times the Fun North American tour, the Globetrotters will add new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet farther than the official 3-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian.

Breeze Cinemas theaters feed drama-hungry audiences the latest mainstream pictures presented in crisp DLP-digital projection and sonorous Meyer Sound speakers. Nocturnal cinephiles can spend an evening munching on buttery golden kernels with their arms around their sweethearts, and matineers can get their laughing and crying out of the way early to preserve their professionalism during later tapings of Judge Judy. Stadium seating keeps views clear and noggin interference to a minimum. Check out the showtimes to pick a flick.
Entertaining the public for almost 30 years, the Silver Screen Theatre projects first-run movies in DTS digital sound on four expansive screens. In addition to a daily schedule showcasing four or five current features and the occasional employee home movie, the theater also shows a number of second-run children's films, and offers free admission for ages 3 and younger. The nontraditional interior accommodates guests with moveable chairs and tables, ideal for sidestepping obstructive hats or compiling a seating chart in the shape of Steve Buscemi’s face. Guests can supplement their intake of conventional movie fare with spirits and baked, fried, and grilled full entrees (not included).
Willie Nelson’s Country Throwdown pulls no punches as living-legend Willie Nelson and a posse of hit-making deputies coat eardrums in vibrant layers of pure country topped with authentic honky-tonk. Spearheading the celebration, Willie shares his swollen songbook, impeccable picking, and inimitable voice, crafting melodies that resonate through the antennae of music lovers of every ilk. The event’s aural buffet also features a diverse assortment of breakout jongleurs; artists who may be performing include Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, and Lee Brice.
The bar’s trademark dueling pianos serve as the epicenter of these nightly celebrations; patrons submit their favorite songs on slips of paper for the pianists and backing musicians to recreate. If the website’s playlist is any indication, the bands can handle popular songs from all genres and eras, from Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” The performances are spirited: colorful lights splash upon a stage where servers, guests, and chairs that have somehow developed mobility all dance along to the music. On Sunday nights at the Fort Walton Beach location, a comedy show cranks up the revelry at 9 p.m. after the dueling pianos stop for a rest.
Fueling the celebration is the bar’s indulgent selection of drinks. The menu includes military specials and revelers grab colorful straws to help drain 32-ounce booze buckets filled with fruit-flavored rum or other fruity libations. Honey-infused whiskey sweeten specialty cocktails, and local beers add depth to coolers stocked with Stella Artois and Dos Equis.
