New Year’s Eve

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

Director Garry Marshall’s film does for its holiday what last year’s Valentine’s Day did for, well, you know. A bloated cast of stars interconnect through eight narratives, which are all set in New York City on Dec. 31. Hilary Swank (Claire) oversees the ball drop. Robert De Niro (Stan) is dying, hoping to see the ball drop one last time. Halle Berry (Aimee) is his nurse. Ashton Kutcher and Lea Michele are stuck on an elevator. You get the picture.

A Different Kind of Studio

In the sleek black-and-white lobby of Suite 15 in the strip mall that was once home to the Liberace Museum, B-boys and girls of all ages will discuss music, show off their gear and try out new moves. To the right in an 800-square-foot studio, dancers will learn krumping, popping, hip-hop, breaking and DJing from world-renowned choreographers. During open session, dancers will practice at their leisure in a second studio.
