It's a good week for (hilariously) bad movies and booze

By Ann Dwyer


It's always "Better with Bubbles." Find out how to get your drink on in style at the Cocktail Class hosted by Tammy's Tastings at Live/The Last Word (formerly Live at Pj's/Goodnite Gracie's) on Monday. 7:30 p.m. Champagne is great and all, but why not make it boozier by mixing it in a cocktail? It also makes your cocktails classier. So win-win. $35 in advance, $45 at the door. Reserve your space at or by calling 734-276-3215. 102 S. First St., Ann Arbor. 734-623-1443.

FILM You would be a fool to not want to see “The Robot vs. Aztec Mummy” at Arbor Brewing Co. on Wednesday, hosted by WCBN-FM. 8:30 p.m. (Screening starts at 9.) It's all there in the title, but here are the details: A campy 1958 Mexican horror flick about a mad doctor who builds a robot in order to steal a valuable Aztec treasure from a tomb guarded by a centuries old living mummy. I'm not certain, but I think it's a documentary. Free. 114 E. Washington. 734-763-3500.


And speaking of things so bad, they're good: The "Found Footage Festival" comes to the Michigan Theater on Wednesday. 9:15 p.m. This festival will make you want to go buy a VCR (if that's still possible). New footage in the 2012 show includes The Sexy Treadmill Workout, clips of Kenny “K-Strass” yo-yo pranks, highlights from a 1986 video about how to care for your ferret, found classroom films from the 60s and 70s, and more. With commentary, jokes, and some comic schtick by the hosts. $11. $30 includes two tickets and a copy of the Found Footage Festival Vol. 6 DVD. Buy tickets at and at the door. 603 East Liberty St., Ann Arbor. 734-668-8463.

"The Robot vs. Aztec Mummy" is not a documentary, silly, although it is a true story
