As Cee Lo Green might put it, "Forget you, popcorn." If you really want to enjoy a movie these days, you need to crack open a cold one. The 18-city Clips of Faith Beer and Film Tour, sponsored by the New Belgium Brewery, rolls into town at Theis Park (47th Street and Oak) at 7 p.m. The second annual event combines the mellowed-out atmosphere of an outdoor beer festival — expect plenty of bottles from the Colorado brewery's Lips of Faith line — with a series of engaging short clips by amateur filmmakers. Last year's collection of 20 films featured humorous ones about whales on a paddling trip from Alaska to Seattle and a spaghetti Western revolving around a flat tire. Each stop benefits a local nonprofit; here, the Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation pockets the funds. For more information, see clipsoffaith.com.
