Got a kitschy song in your heart? Head to the Aero Theatre for the first night of its "Can't Stop the Musicals" series.

Tonight, that translates to a screening of Menahem Golan's "The Apple." Head back other nights for "Flashdance," "Rock 'N Roll High School," "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Tommy," "Hair" and "All That Jazz."
