Jim Carrey comes downtown -- sort of -- at 2 p.m. Sunday as the Shea's Free Family Film Series presents "Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events."

Check it out at 646 Main St. Also this weekend, 97 Rock hosts its Classic Rock Art Show at Walden Galleria Mall, One Galleria Drive, Cheektowaga.
