Bigfoot Lodge is celebrating their 10th Anniversary with a week-long party. They're rolling back the prices, so you can actually party like it's 1999. Help them celebrate by enjoying their "recession busting" special pricing. Heads up: if you really want to relive the glory of '99, check them out all week for other fun events like tomorrow's Knotty Pine Derby, and the return of music to the Bigfoot on Sunday, along with their Bloody Sunday crafty cocktail menu.

Once Upon a Time in the West, Sergio Leone's 1968 classic "spaghetti western," screens tonightat 8 at West Hollywood's New Beverly Cinema. See the film in a beautiful 35mm print of the recent restoration and find out if you can trust a man who wears a belt and suspenders.

Inspired by the Hammer exhibition The Darker Side of Light, the American Magic-Lantern Theater performs a Victorian era Magic-Lantern show, replete with flying ghosts, macabre goblins, and a petrifying rendition of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven, tonight from 7-9 p.m. Using original glass slides and a spectacular antique Magic-Lantern, the AMLT re-creates this popular 1890’s combination of projected color images, dramatic storytelling, live music, hilarious comedy, and frightening special effects. Admission is free, but you'll need to get your ticket at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office; they are available one hour prior to start time. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.
