  • Ryan Coogler at Artemus Ham Concert Hall

    UNLV's Barrick Lecture Series is the domain of superheroes. Its previous speakers have included Annie Leibovitz and Guillermo del Toro, with Anita Hill due to appear in early 2020. But as impressive as this august body might be, none of them have willed an entire nation into being. With Black Panther, producer, screenwriter and director Ryan Coogler did just that; thanks to him, Wakanda is indeed forever, no matter what Martin Scorsese has to say on the matter. (Speaking of similar cinematic miracles: Coogler's direction earned Sylvester Stallone an Oscar nomination for his acting in Creed, Stallone's first such nomination in nearly 40 years.)

    But the Oakland-born maker of Fruitvale Station probably isn't coming here just to talk about his movies. The 33-year-old is also a founding member of the Blackout for Human Rights campaign, and counsels kids at San Francisco's Juvenile Hall. Those are real superheroics, right there. November 17, 7:30 p.m., free (tickets required), unlv.edu/event/barrick-lecture-series-evening-ryan-coogler. –Geoff Carter

  • Tree-Lighting Ceremony at Cosmopolitan Ice Rink

    The holidays arrive at the Cosmo with a celebration hosted by Golden Knights goalie Marc-André Fleury and winger Max Pacioretty. The event will also mark the season debut of the 4,200-square-foot rooftop Ice Rink. Enjoy s'mores, hot cocoa and snow flurries—or should we say "fleurys"—as you marvel at the 36-foot Christmas tree. November 22, 6-8 p.m., free admission ($10-$25 to skate). –C. Moon Reed
