Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

PRIDE: Today is the 30th annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride celebration that goes from 11 am until 11 pm today and tomorrow along Shoreline Drive. It's a massive event with great performances. Tickets are $20 at the gate. For more information, visit the event's website.

DRIVE-IN: Take your honey to the drive-in: tonight you can catch "Ted" on the big, inflatable screen going up at Los Angeles Trade Tech College. Besides the movie, there will be bands presented by Origami Vinyl and food trucks. The event is being put on by Eat|See|Hear. Tickets are $12 at the door or $15 if you're in a car. The bands start playing at 7 pm, and the movie starts at 8:30 pm. For more information or to look at the schedule in the months ahead, visit Eat|See|Hear's website.

CLASSICAL: Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is finishing up its season with a performance featuring cellist Alisa Weilerstein performing Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major, Op. 107. Tonight's performance is being held at the Alex Theatre in Glendale at 8 pm. Tickets start at $25, and you can find out more information at Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's website.

MOVIE: For one week, the New Beverly is screening Shirley Clarke's "Portrait of Jason."

It's screening all week, but today you can catch it at 3:30 pm, 6:00 pm and 8:30 pm. For more info, visit the New Bev's website.
