KC Chiefs vs. Cleveland Browns

SUNDAY

The Chiefs managed to leave Arrowhead Stadium with their second victory of the season Sunday afternoon, a 27-21 win over the Carolina Panthers, but there was little reason to rejoice in the wake of an unthinkable tragedy. In a story that immediately made national news, Jovan Belcher shot his longtime girlfriend Saturday morning before killing himself just feet away from Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli. And though football, surely, seems particularly menial at a time like this, the Chiefs will travel to Cleveland for a Sunday afternoon matchup with the Browns. Kickoff is scheduled for noon on CBS.

‘We Are Superman: The Transformation of 31st and Troost’

screening FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Director Kevin Bryce’s upcoming film explores the racial and economic strife surrounding the 31st and Troost area over the past half-century, complete with interviews from Kansas City Mayor Sly James, ReEngage founder Rodney Knott and Father Paisius Altschul, among others. Screenings of the film, set to be released next year, will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Screenland Crossroads, which recently underwent a significant renovation. Boulevard Brewing Co. will sponsor a meet-and-greet following the Friday night screening, with appearances by some of those featured in the film. Go to wearesuperman-themovie.com for more information.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra: The Lost Christmas Eve

SUNDAY

Outside of eggnog and “Christmas Vacation,” there might not be a more Christmas-y tradition than the musical stylings of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The group, formed in 1993 as a rock opera, began touring in 1999 and quickly garnered acclaim. TSO toured overseas for the first time in 2011, and Billboard has called it one of the top 25 touring artists of the 2000s. It performs 2004’s “The Lost Christmas Eve,” the last of its vaunted Christmas Trilogy, on Sunday at the Sprint Center, just in time for the holidays. The performances begin at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $32 to $70.50 at sprintcenter.com.

Bingo!

THURSDAY AND SATURDAY

It’s not just for the retirement home crowd, at least not this week. Ad 2, a local advertising professionals group, holds its “Art of the Call: Make Your Mark” bingo game on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Vox Theatre, 1405 Southwest Blvd. Admission to the event, which also includes a silent auction and food and drink, is $10-$40, and proceeds benefit reStart Inc., which provides homeless men, women and children with shelter and support. Go to aafkc.com to register. Additionally, the Northland Animal Welfare Society will hold a charity bingo night of its own on Saturday at Hamburger Mary’s at 5 p.m. Players get 10 bingo cards for $10, and there are also prizes and a raffle. The charity provides low-cost assistance for families with pets. pcnaws.org.
