Down to clown

Catch the new comedy “Family,” about a 12-year-old girl who runs away to become a Juggalo. The band Insane Clown Posse will perform after the screening, so this is either a show you definitely want to see, or one for which you should avoid the entire neighborhood. Whoop whoop!

8 pm at the Well [272 Meserole St. between Waterbury Street and Bushwick Place in Bushwick, (347) 338–3612, www.thewellbrooklyn.com]. $16.

2 pm at Union Pool [484 Union Ave. at Meeker Avenue in Williamsburg, (718) 609–0484, www.union-pool.com]. Free.
