MOVIES: One big Hollywood release and a bunch that won’t get much traction.

• “Aftershock”: What happens to people in an underground nightclub when a huge earthquake hits? Eli Roth, Ariel Levy, Nicola McIntryre, Lorena Izzo. Rated R.
• “Erased” is an R-rated thriller starring Aaron Eckhart about an ex-CI agent and his daughter on the run. Also with Olga Kurylenko and Liana Liberto.
ON STAGE: At the Rose Center Theater in Westminster on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. the RCT Concert Series continues with “A Night at the Opera” with performances by Marilyn Breeze and Tim Nelson and the Opera Ensemble for the Performing Arts.
General admission tickets are $15; seniors and students are $10.
SPORTS: The biggest sporting event of the week will be when Pacifica and Yorba Linda meet Thursday at 3:15 at the Mariner softball field. They are tired for first in the Empire League.
The winner of that game gets the EL pennant. Hint: Pacifica, ranked eighth in the nation, has already beaten Yorba Linda twice this season.
Another big game is today (Monday) when Garden Grove and Rancho Alamitos, tied for first in the Garden Grove League, meet on the Vaquero diamond.
