Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction: Nothing says "20 years" like a box set, which is what Quentin Tarantino will get soon. And to celebrate, catch his first two (and still best, by far) films, in local theaters. It should go great with his upcoming work, Django Unchained. Reservoir Dogs is 7 p.m. Tuesday and Pulp Fiction is 7 p.m. Dec. 6 at Rave North East Mall, Regal Fossil Creek, AMC Parks at Arlington and the Cinemarks in Grapevine, Denton, Alliance and Mansfield (plus more in Dallas). $11.50. See list of theaters (and other Fathom Events) at www.fathomevents.com.

Field St., Dallas. Tickets $10-$20. 214-428-5555; www.perotmuseum.org

The entrance is at Road to Six Flags and Ballpark Way in Arlington. Admission and parking are free. www.arlingtonchristkindl.com

Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom starring Peter Gros: We're not sure which exotic animals Gros will have with him at his Fort Worth tour stop, but you can bet some will elicit "ewwws" and others "awwwws." Some of 'em, probably both. 4 p.m. Sunday at Bass Hall, Fort Worth. $27.50. 817-212-4280; www.basshall.com
