There's a preview screening of Julie & Julia tonight at 7:30 pm at LACMA’s Bing Theater. Nora Ephron’s comedy intertwines the true stories of two women: Julia Child (Meryl Streep) in the 1950s and Julie Powell (Amy Adams), a Brooklyn secretary who blogs about making the 564 recipes in Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking in 365 days. Says LACMA: “Though separated by time and space, Julie and Julia both discover that the right combination of passion, fearlessness, and butter makes anything possible.” Tickets: $10 nonmembers; $5 members

Now this is a recession buster: The Glendale Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department is holding a one-day "penny carnival" today until 5 pm at Montrose Park (3529 Clifton Place). The carnival includes games, face painting, balloons, popcorn and snow cones for 5 to 25 cents.

“Capturing Nature’s Beauty: Three Centuries of French Landscape”; is a new exhibit that opens today at the Getty Center, drawing from the Getty’s drawings collection and includes the work of Nicolas Poussin, Claude Lorrain, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Vincent van Gogh, Camille Pissarro and others. The Getty is open until 5:30 pm today, and while admission is free, parking is $15. The exhibit runs until Nov. 1.
