'Insidious' and 'Insidious Chapter 2'

Kick off the new year with some horror -- horror films, that is. Head down to the Sony Wonder Technology Lab this Saturday for a double feature of "Insidious" and "Insidious Chapter 2," flicks that follow the lives of the Lamberts (starring Patrick Wilson, above, and Rose Byrne) as they encounter and try to escape dark spirits that are haunting their house. Or could they be haunting something else? Dun, dun, dun! (Saturday, 12:15 p.m. & 3 p.m., FREE, Sony Wonder Technology Lab, 550 Madison Ave., 212-833-8100, sonywondertechlab.com)

Don't Drop the C9 Ball

You may have watched the ball drop on New Year's Eve to bring in 2014, but don't drop the ball on your New Year's fitness resolutions this year. Start things off on the right foot by joining Target at Grand Central Terminal today for a spinning event where the harder you pedal, the more you'll keep the C9 ball in the air. Work off some of the holiday weight and score some C9 swag, quick tips and tricks on how to stick to your fitness goals this year. What have you got to lose -- besides the extra poundage? (Thursday, 2-8 p.m., FREE, Grand Central Terminal, 89 E. 42nd St., facebook.com/grandcentralterminal, grandcentralterminal.com)
