The Righteous Brothers haven’t lost that loving feeling. They’ll be spreading some of that love Sunday night at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.

The show starts at 7 p.m. Ticket prices start at $48.15.

Movies

The World War I epic "1917" opens nationwide Friday and is getting plenty of Oscar buzz.

Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne and Salma Hayek star in the comedy “Like a Boss.”

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Kristen Stewart stars as an engineer whose team encounters a creature at the bottom of the ocean. That’s the premise of “Underwater,” which is basically “Alien” meets “The Abyss.” Or was that “Leviathan?” Read about it for yourself in this review.
