Film

Alamo Drafthouse “True Grit” screening. This screening of the original “True Grit” featuring John Wayne isn’t any ordinary showing of the film. Present for a bourbon tasting and cocktail presentation beforehand and a Q&A afterward is John Wayne’s son Ethan, as well as renowned bartender Francesco Lafranconi, to present a very special bottle of booze: the Duke Bourbon Whiskey, a blend of 5- to 10-year-old bourbons aged in charred barrels to recreate the whiskeys that John Wayne had left stashed away after his death. 6:45 p.m. Sunday. $13. Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, 1120 S. Lamar Blvd. drafthouse.com.

Music

Neil Diamond at Erwin Center. “This show will probably have more songs in it than any show I’ve ever done because I don’t want to take out ‘I Am I Said’ or ‘Sweet Caroline’ or ‘Holly Holy,’” Diamond told a handful of journalists in a conference call interview back in February when asked how much of this tour would focus on last year’s “Melody Road” album or his 2005 and ’08 records with producer Rick Rubin. So there will be new songs, yes, but apparently not at the expense of most of the old crowd favorites. “It’s going to be a big show in every way,” he added, noting that his concerts are such a large-scale affair that “I carry 100 people with me now. I used to go out with just a guitar, and then it grew from there to a three-piece band, and then a larger band and a road manager and lighting directors and catering and traveling.” Sunday’s concert will be the eighth time Diamond’s crew has rolled into the Erwin Center but the first in 13 years. $39.50-$150. 8 p.m. Sunday. 1701 Red River St. uterwincenter.com. — Peter Blackstock
