In film, the New Beverly has a double feature of two 1950 classics: Billy Wilder's Sunset Blvd. and In a Lonely Place starring Humphrey Bogart, at 7:30 PM and 9:40 PM, respectively.

The weather has been lovely, so the free outdoor screening of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at LACMA would be a great way to enjoy the evening. The movie begins at 8:00 PM; bring a blanket or chair to sit on.

In art, head for the Harmony Gallery in Hollywood for the Canyon Club group art show opening reception, starting at 7:00 PM. Original Bones Brigade team rider Paulo Diaz will be performing live on sitar at 9:00 PM, plus DJs spinning the rest of the night, giveaways from Astralwerks Records and beer courtesy of Red Stripe. Harmony Gallery is located at 5911 Franklin Ave, a few blocks east of Beachwood, right next to LaPoubele.
