There's a Japanese New Year celebration in Little Tokyo with entertainment including folk songs, dancing, karate demonstration, kimono demonstration and a tea ceremony. Free and fresh Mochi. Yum. Start out in Weller Court and wander around the neighborhood. Runs from 11 am-3 pm.

FILM
The Aero Theatre presents two classic screwball comedies featuring the Marx Brothers at 5:30 pm. First up is A Night at the Opera from 1935, the first film for MGM and without Zeppo. The second part of the double feature is Animal Crackers (1930) where the brothers are caught up in the theft of a priceless painting.

FRENCH FILM
Guillaume Canet's 2006 French thriller Tell No One is one of our film editor Josh’s favorites from last year. It’s about a doctor who tries to overcome the murder of his wife, yet finds himself suspected of another murder. It screens tonight at 7:30 pm at the New Beverly Cinema and plays on Saturday at 2:50 pm.
