San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts continues its “Screw Netflix” film series showcasing great movies not available on DVD. Spike Lee’s landmark “She’s Gotta Have It” — among a group of flicks that kicked off a new wave of independent American films — screens Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at 701 Mission St., San Francisco. Lee emerged as a fresh and significant talent with the release of this 1986 comedy, his first feature-length film shot on a shoestring budget. The movie’s heroine is Nola Darling, a charismatic young woman who refuses to be dominated by any man. Tickets are $6 to $8.

Durst-case scenario

Comedian and political satirist Will Durst performs a stand-up show — a benefit for Pacifica Performances and the Pacifica Spindrift Players. Deb Durst and Michael Bossier also take the stage at 7 p.m. Sunday at Sanchez Concert Hall, 1220A Linda Mar Blvd., Pacifica. Tickets are $30 to $35.
