    ‘Hondo,’ the 1953 John Wayne 3-D classic, is playing at the Fox Theatre on March 1.

    Today

    Sabbagh lecture: “”Is Iraq Viable?”” – Kanan Makiya, professor of Modern Middle East studies at Brandeis University, will talk about whether Iraq’s current borders are sustainable and appropriate for the future, and whether Iraq can remain a country as it is. 7 p.m. Free. Arizona Historical Society, 949 E. Second St.

    Tomorrow

    Meet Jason Brown – This UA creative writing professor is notable for writing a book of short stories, “”Why the Devil Chose New England for His Work,”” and is also possibly the first man ever to speak at Antigone Books. 7 p.m. Free. Antigone Books, 411 N. Fourth Ave.

    UA Philharmonic Orchestra – They will be playing pieces by Tchaikovsky, Glinka, Debussy and Schuman. They will also look very stately. 7:30 p.m. Free. Crowder Hall

    A Memorial Tribute to Jon Anderson – I thought Jon Anderson was the lead singer of the progressive rock band Yes. But apparently there’s a Wikipedia profile for another Jon Anderson who almost won the National Book Award and died last year. If you type in “”John,”” there’s also a country music singer, Republican House representative and an actor on “”The Bob Newhart Show.”” 8 p.m. Free. UA Modern Languages auditorium

    Saturday

    Spring dance – If you’re one of those nerds who speaks German in public for no apparent reason and talks about beer selections a lot, you’ll love this German Frühlingstanz. Take your lady as an excuse to get in her stretch pants. 6-10 p.m. $8 for dance, $7 for dinner. F.O.P. Lodge, 3445 N. Dodge Blvd.

    Sunday

    “”Hondo”” – The 1953 John Wayne classic, filmed and presented in 3-D, will be screened at an event to benefit the Fox Theatre Foundation. The event includes a viewing of memorabilia, reception and panel discussion. 2:30 p.m. $20. Fox Theatre, 17 W. Congress St.

    Oro Valley Spring Art Festival – Juried artists show work. Art work, jewelry, furniture and refreshments for sale. Musician Leo Gosselin will perform. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free. Rooney Ranch/Target Center. 10555 N. Oracle Road

    Monday

    “”Bachelor Party 2: The Last Temptation”” – This movie is apparently a straight-to-DVD sequel of the ’80s Tom Hanks classic, with a hilarious “”new generation of off-the-wall characters!”” No Tom Hanks cameo, apparently. Before it goes on to remake movie history, they’ll be playing it at Gallagher Theatre. 7 p.m.

    The Super Colon – An incredible, inflatable, interactive colon that teaches people about the risks, symptoms, prevention, early detection and treatment options for colorectal cancer. Visitors get to walk through a 20-foot long colon and get a look at healthy and diseased tissue. A lecture with cancer center physicians and researchers will be presented along with an “”Ask the Doctor”” session beginning at 9:30 am. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free. Arizona Cancer Center at University Medical Center North, east side parking lot, 3838 N. Campbell Ave.

    “”Class of 1984″” – This movie is like “”Dangerous Minds”” but with white kids in leather jackets. It was meant to document how kids are running wild in the school system, but ends up more exploitation and action film than anything. 8 p.m. $2. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Producing Colloquium Presents Kevin Townsley and Jamie Turner – Townsley has worked on “”The Shield”” and “”Oaks”” on Fox, and Turner has “”Hanging With Mr. Cooper,”” otherwise known as the best show not on television not on his résumé. 4-5:15 p.m. Free. Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center

    Tuesday

    Louis XIV – This San Diego-based quartet uses strings, dramatic drum flourishes and Muse-like guitar extravagances that accompany the lead singer’s squeaky voice. With Carolina Liar. 21 and over. 7:30 p.m. $15. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.

    Wednesday

    UA Faculty Artists – Daniel Katzen on horn and Paula Fan on piano perform. Katzen is retiring from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and taking up residence as associate professor of horn at the UA School of Music. 7:30 p.m. Free. Crowder Hall
