ART
Actor Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls, Bully…etc) curates the art show “Crusaders & Haters: Superheroes and Villains in American Pop Culture,” which opens tonight at Royal/T in Culver City. DJ Short Circuit spins tunes for a costume-themed opening party (with prizes!) presented by ZIPPERCUT beginning at 8 pm -- so come dressed as your fav superhero. Featured artists and works include “Bathoven” by Michael Kleinman, “Doom Papparazi” by Evanimal, “Joker” by Justin Schaefer and “Mr. Spider” by Steven Anderson. Admission is free.

FILM
The Atwater Neighborhood Council is sponsoring a free movie night tonight at the Los Feliz Par 3 course. On the screen (when darkness falls) is The Goonies. Remember this flick? With a story by Steven Spielberg (kids + treasure map = hi-jinx), it has an awesome cast: with Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano.
