Hitchcock's masterpiece Vertigo is playing tonight at the Hammer Museum as part of Julian Hoeber's Demon Hill installation that is "an homage to the anxiety-producing, perception-warping" spots of the American roadside tradition. Sounds hoity-toity but...come's Vertigo! Jacque Tati's Playtime will also be screened. Tickets required, but they're free.

Mr. Hipster Enology is hosting a Zinfandel from Paso Robles tasting at Whole Foods in Venice tonight. $20 for five wines and there will be food parings for each wine. That's a pretty good wine/food get for a Wednesday night! Starts at 7 p.m.

Second City Studio hosts Detention Hall every Wednesday night. If you're in need of some laughter (and who among us isn't?) watching the Teen Troupe commit various acts of improv is not a shabby way to spend an evening. The show is free and starts at 7 p.m.

As part of its Reel to Reel program, The Grammy Museum is hosting a special screening of Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould. How is Glenn Gould, you ask? The piano virtuoso that has become a legend through many biographies and films thanks to his somewhat eccentric, very mysterious personal life and his brilliant public performances. The film promises "never-before-seen footage" and in LA, that's the holy grail, no? The event is free, but you'll need to email your RSVP to the museum at:
