ABC's attempt at turning Will Eisner's iconic comic The Spirit into a TV series in 1987 may not have passed the pilot stage, but it sure beats Frank Miller's misbegotten $60 million feature-film treatment of 2008.

Around the holidays, it’s recommended you stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. At least that’s what everyone’s favorite oversized elf, Buddy, thinks. See Elf on the big screen 7 p.m. Monday at Harkins Theatres, 150 E. Reno Ave. Admission is free, but registration is required. Visit downtownindecember.com.
