Enormous Microscopic Evening @Hammer
The Enormous Microscopic Evening examines the Hammer Museum from a microscopic perspective with CRITTER, a San Francisco-based salon dedicated to expanding the relationships between culture and the environment. The evening will focus on demonstrations and workshops about building and manipulating microscopes. Materials and samples taken from around the museum will be examined. There will be micro performances (short concerts with tiny instruments) and other related events throughout the museum. This event is part of the Hammer's Artist in Residence program, which this year features Machine Project. 4 p.m.

Marilyn Monroe Double Feature
The New Beverly Cinema is giving movie lovers a chance to see two classic comedic films of the 1950s starring Marilyn Monroe tonight, and through Thursday, on a double feature bill. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) in a new 35mm print plays today at 3:40 & 7:30, and The Seven Year Itch (1955) plays today at 5:25 & 9:25.

Museum of Public Fiction @Elysian Park
Head to the EPMoA Visitor's Center at LACE for the unveiling of artifacts uncovered during the Elysian Park Dig, a collaboration between Lauren Mackler and Riah Buchanan. This unveiling event will include a presentation of objects, audio and imagery relating to a few stories the collective have unearthed. These include the life and death of the native Gabrielinos, the dark undertone of the 1932 Olympics shooting event, the disturbing case of the Marion Parker's dismemberment, the amazing moving mountain and the 1967 Love-In. Each event marks a moment in the park's history and underscores the lingering desperation of the site. Los Angeles-based musician Emily Lacy has composed an original cover of the folk songs written about the Murder of Marion Parker to be played during the event. 2-4 p.m.
