Pencil This In: 'Dolls' Double, Rick Moody Reads, Cabaret Night, and Cocktails & Gardens
As part of a nationwide celebration, Fox is presenting "Hometown Hollywood" events in 15 cities, featuring films being shown in the cities in which they were shot and by which they were inspired. Los Angeles equals starlets, pills, and booze, apparently, ergo tonight's double feature at The Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood of Valley of the Dolls (1967) and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970). The evening will be emceed by the incomparable Jackie Beat who played Helen Lawson in the off Broadway NYC production. 7:30 PM. Tickets.
Author Rick Moody ("The Diviners") will read and sign his sprawling new novel -- an "adaptation" of a (fictional) 1960s pulp horror movie at Skylight Books tonight in Los Feliz. The Four Fingers of Death is said to be a tome that lovers of Pynchon and Vonnegut will love. 7:30PM. Free.
