Pencil This In: French Classic Film at the New Beverly, The Monthly Moth Storytelling
Still a little quiet on the events front, but we've found a few interesting things to do in LA tonight.
The Moth StorySLAM provides a stage and a microphone, and people are selected to tell--not read--their five-minute stories. Tonight at the Air-Conditioned Supper Club in Venice is the monthly story slam. The theme is “cars.” Doors open at 7 pm and the stories start at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $7.
The last film the New Beverly Cinema will screen this year is the 1945 French epic Les Enfants du Paradis (Children of Paradise), a film directed by Marcel Carné. The romantic drama tells the story of an ill-fated love between Baptiste, a theater mime, and Garance, a courtesan, who only loves on her own terms, though she is wanted by several men. Screenings tonight and tomorrow night at 8 pm. Tickets are $7. (Note: The film’s running time is 3 hrs. and 15 mins.)
The Center Theatre Group presents Palestine, New Mexico at the Mark Taper Forum. Written by Richard Montoya for Culture Clash--LA's premiere Chicano performance group--the play is set on a reservation. It follows Army Captain Siler who returns from Iraq with a secret she just can’t keep about the friendly fire death of the chief's son. "...The play weaves comedy and pathos into a poetic tale of loss and discovery that spans centuries and explores the meaning of right, wrong, fact, fiction, family, tribe and homeland." Tickets are $45-$65, but half price through the LA Stage Alliance from $22.50 to $32.50.
