CRISPIN GLOVER FANS: Glover screens his film It is Fine, EVERYTHING IS FINE! (the second installment in his “It” trilogy.) Co-directed by Glover and David Brothers, the film is based on the work of late author Steven C. Stewart: “a psychosexual, fantasy, a noirish, surreal story of a wheelchair-bound Lotahrio (with a fetish for women with really long hair) who has women, literally, dropping at his feet.” There’s a live presentation of Glover “Big Slide Show” before the film and a Q&A and signing afterward.
8 pm // Egyptian Theatre // 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles // $20.
