Tropical Storm Andrea is threatening to wreak havoc with at least part of this weekend, but that doesn't mean you have to stay home. Here are some things to get you out of the house, while enjoying a range of indoor diversions in Fairfield:
Make Friday night "Movie Night," and there's a diverse slate of offerings lighting up the silver screens at the Fairfield Cinemas at Bullard Square, from "Star Trek Into Darkness" to "The Hangover, Part III" to "The Great Gatsby" to "Mud." For a full listing of the flicks and the schedule the cinema complex at 41 Black Rock Turnpike, check http://bit.ly/14lvLWN or call 203-339-7149.
Another option Friday night is a free talk and book signing by John Dunn, author of "Loopers: A Caddie's Twenty-Year Golf Odyssey," from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave. Find more information at www.pequotlibrary.org or call 203-259-0346.
