Jim Henson’s Commercials and Experimentals comes to the Silent Movie Theatre tonight. Best known for The Muppets, these clips shown tonight are true Henson rarities. The 8 pm show’s sold out, so they’ve added a 10 pm show. Better hurry.

8 pm (sold out) and 10 pm // Silent Movie Theatre // 611 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles // $12.

FILM (Option 2)
One of Federico Fellini’s classics La Dolce Vita screens at the ArcLight/Hollywood tonight. In Italian with English subtitles, the film follows a handsome writer in an amoralistic/hedonistic Italy.

8 pm // ArcLight Hollywood // 6360 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles // $12.

CLASSICAL (Option 2)
Here’s a real chance to feel cultured: Head over to the Huntington to watch Camerata Pacifica. That includes violinist Catherine Ledonard, cellist Ani Aznavoorian, violist Paul Coletti, flutist Adrian Spence and pianist Adam Neiman perform a program that includes Mendelssohn's Sonata No. 2 for cello and piano, Chausson's Piano Quartet in A major and a work by Thea Musgrave for flute and electronics. Plus a cool setting to boot.

8 pm // Huntington Library // 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino // $40.
