Barbarella at the Denver Central Library B2 Conference Center (Tuesday) Check out the camp classic starring Jane Fonda tonight as part of Fresh City Life's sci-fi film series. To make the night extra-special, NYC drag persona, TV star and author Brini Anderson will host and comment along the way as Barbarella attempts to rescue Doctor Durand Durand from a foreign planet. It's gonna rule.

Rachel Is screening and Mission Supports volunteer orientation at Denver Open Media (Wednesday) If you've been looking for a way to volunteer your time, now is the ideal opportunity to learn more about a very worthy cause -- and catch a fascinating documentary while you're at it. Mission Supports is a non-profit that works to support adults with mental disabilities, and tonight the organization is hosting a volunteer orientation along with a screening of Rachel Is, a documentary about the struggle of a special-education student transitioning into adult life. Go to see the movie, find out more about the organization, and give back to the community.

Fuddy Meers at the CU Boulder Acting Studio (Wednesday-Thursday) Amnesia has been used as a plot device all over pop culture, from the saccharine Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore flick 50 First Dates to Christopher Nolan's psychological thriller Memento. The CU Boulder 509 Performance Series will explore similar themes in David Lindsay Abaire's dark comedy Fuddy Meers, which follows a woman whose memory is erased every night. The truly unforgettable part? Tickets are free! Check it out at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday or Thursday nights. (Performances continue at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.)
