Erin Shirreff at Lora Reynolds Gallery. The New York artist's first presentation at Lora Reynolds features work that blurs the boundaries between sculpture and photography, investigating the gray area between usually neatly defined categories and whether experiencing art firsthand is more powerful than looking at a photograph of that artwork. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday through Jan. 12. 360 Nueces St. Suite 50. 512-215-4965, lorareynolds.com.
Paramount Holiday Films' "The Muppet Christmas Carol." Although there are many stellar cinematic adaptations of Charles Dickens' beloved holiday story, there's only one featuring Kermit and Miss Piggy as the Cratchits, Fozzie Bear as the festive “Fozziwig” and the Great Gonzo as Dickens himself. Michael Caine’s Scrooge isn’t happy about being surrounded by all these Muppets — at least until he gets a heavy dose of the holiday spirit. The film takes the big screen as part of the Paramount Theatre's holiday film series. 7 p.m. Dec. 19. $7-$12. 713 Congress Ave. austintheatre.org.

Circuit of the Americas, 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd. circuitoftheamericas.com/winter-wonderland. — Joe Gross
