The King is alive and well in Aventura. Chris MacDonald brings his "Memories of Elvis" traveling show to the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. MacDonald is the only tribute artist hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform at Graceland.

Last but not least, Michael McDonald is set to take the stage at the Parker Playhouse this Sunday at 7 p.m. in Fort Lauderdale. Fans can expect to hear plenty of his classics from the Doobie Brothers, including "What a Fool Believes," "Takin' It to the Streets" and "Minute by Minute."

Movies

Several new releases are hitting theaters on Oscar weekend.

Bruce Willis takes over the role made famous by Charles Bronson in the remake of the 1974 movie "Death Wish." Willis plays a doctor who is out for revenge against the men who attacked his family.

The original film spawned four sequels. Somehow, this feels like it's a one-and-done.

Watch the trailer here:

Jennifer Lawrence plays a Russian spy with a kickass mentality in "Red Sparrow." Lawrence has made headlines for finally baring all in the movie. So, there's that, if you're into that kind of thing.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of "The Big Lebowski," Coral Gables Art Cinema will screen the cult classic at 11:30 p.m. Saturday. "The Dude abides."

Sports

Miami will be playing baseball at Mark Light Field for the third consecutive weekend. The Hurricanes (3-5) have lost five of their last six games, including a 5-4 decision at FAU on Wednesday night, but they'll look to get back on track with a three-game series against Maine. 

The 'Canes and Black Bears will no longer play a doubleheader Saturday, instead playing under the lights in Coral Gables at 6 p.m. Sunday's series finale has been pushed back from its original time of noon to 11:30 a.m.

Panthers fans will get twice as many opportunities to see their team in action this weekend. Florida hosts the Buffalo Sabres this Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Panthers are back on the ice at the BB&T Center on Sunday to take on the Philadelphia Flyers at 3 p.m.

Florida Panthers center Aleksander Barkov (16) celebrates with teammates Nick Bjugstad (27) and Evgenii Dadonov (63) after his goal during the third period against the New Jersey Devils, March 1, 2018, in Sunrise, Florida. The Panthers won 3-2.

Sandwiched in between a weekend of Panthers games is a date with the Heat. 

If you haven't seen Dwyane Wade back in his familiar No. 3 Heat jersey yet, you'll get the chance Saturday night in Miami. The Heat will look to rebound from an atrocious defensive performance Thursday night when they host the Detroit Pistons at 7:30 p.m.

Last but not least, the Beach Volleyball Major Series tournament is underway in Fort Lauderdale. The best of the best will compete on the sand to take home the trophy. The best part: it's free.
