LAist once saw someone do a karaoke rendition of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" that involved a blow-up guitar; particularly considering that the act took place in a coffee house, it was an impressive show. LAist is willing to concede, however, that tonight's actual Cheap Trick show at the Canyon Club will probably top it. Doors open at 6:00 PM for dinner reservations; the show starts at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $42.50.

In film, the Silver Lake Film Festival continues this week at the ArcLight. Click here for daily schedules and event information.

Also at the ArcLight, AFI at ArcLight presents The Manchurian Candidate (the original from 1962, not the recent remake). The film stars Frank Sinatra and Janet Leigh, and begins at 8:00 PM.

At the New Beverly Cinema it's a Charles Bukowski kind of evening, with the amazing documentary Bukowski: Born Into This at 7:30 PM, followed by Mickey Rourke as Buk in the big-screen adaptation Barfly.

Celebrate Banned Books Week tonight at 7:00 PM when S.E. Hinton signs her new book, Hawkes Harbor, at Dutton's in Brentwood. (LAist wonders if we could sneak in a copy of The Outsiders for her to sign...)
