Isn’t it neat?

For those poor unfortunate souls who want to pass on the Super Bowl, we have an event that is as far as you can get from a testosterone-fueled sports match-up: “Movie Party Music: The Little Mermaid.” This immersive screening (for grown-ups only!) will feature sing-alongs, a costume contest, and “Rocky Horror”–style games, props, and shout-outs.

7 pm at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus, (718) 643–6510, www.thebellhouseny.com]. $15 ($12 in advance).

Good ‘Kitty’

After seeing classic films earlier in the week, check out more than a dozen of Brooklyn’s best new filmmakers at the Katra Film Series Finale, including “Hola Kitty,” (pictured) a short documentary look at the people who wear dress up in costumes and pose with tourists in Times Square and Coney Island.

7 pm at the Alamo Drafthouse [445 Albee Square West between Willoughby and Fulton streets Downtown, (718) 513–2547, www.katrafilmseries.com]. $30.

Brain power

Finally, it is time for a live-action show! Head over to the Gallery Players to catch “A New Brain,” an all-singing, all-dancing show about brain surgery! Based on a true story, composer William Finn tells the story of a musical theater writer who hallucinates dance numbers from frogs while being treated at the hospital.

8 pm at Gallery Players [199 14th St. between Fourth and Fifth avenues in Park Slope, (212) 352–3101], www.galleryplayers.com. $25 ($20 kids and seniors).
