As part of their series The Masters of Disaster: The Golden Age of Cataclysmic Cinema, the American Cinematheque is screening the 1975 flick The HIndenburg tonight at 7:30 at the Egyptian Theatre. The description: "Director Robert Wise helmed this film about the Hindenburg conflagration touched off when the German zeppelin landed in Lakehurst, New Jersey, in 1937. George C. Scott is a conflicted German security officer aboard, Anne Bancroft is a wayward countess, William Atherton a possible saboteur, Roy Thinnes a fanatical Gestapo officer and Charles Durning the Hindenburg's captain." Tickets are $10.

For many of us it's the last day of a stretch of time off work (or for some it's just, well, the end of the weekend). But no matter who you are, you might need a "come down" from the weekend. Hit up The Come Down deal at the Cha Cha Lounge (2375 Glendale Blvd @ Silver Lake Blvd) from 5-9 tonight. There's no cover and $2 Bloody Marys. We hear they serve up a serious Bloody Mary--thanks in part to the special pickled peppers. Zing!

At Noon today We Tell Stories will perform A Feat From the East—folktales that draw from the rich traditions of Asia and the Middle East at the Japanese American National Museum in Downtown. The group specializes in bringing classic literature and folk tales to life in classrooms, theatres, schools, museums, festivals, special events, and libraries, and this free show aims to inspire creativity, enhance literacy, cultivate intercultural awareness and harmony, and spark a love of the theatre and spoken word. And why not enjoy some time at the Museum itself?
