Tonight @ Brocach Irish Pub, 9 p.m.
One of the defining films of the 1990s, Pulp Fiction was the “Seinfeld” of crime caper movies, with long stretches of amusingly mundane chatter tied together by wild coincidences. The film inspired a slew of knock-offs, rekindled John Travolta’s career—thus making Battlefield Earth possible—and afforded director Quentin Tarantino the opportunity to make any film he wanted. Pulp Fiction remains his masterpiece, though. Brocach screens the film for free tonight on its patio.
