Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Los Angeles Theatre Works presents an HD screening of The Importance of Being Earnest from Roundabout Theatre’s Tony-nominated Broadway production. Angelenos have a chance to watch the Oscar Wilde comedy, directed by and starring Tony-nominee Brian Bedford, in a still-running Broadway production. It's cheaper than a plane ticket to New York. Held at the James Bridges Theater at UCLA, tonight at 7 pm. Check Los Angeles Theatre works for additional screening times. Tickets: $20, students $10.

It’s the last Engagement Party at MOCA with the art collective Neighborhood Public Radio tonight at 7 pm. The “In the Air” project combines musicians, electric guitars and fuzzboxes so visitors can experience fuzztone drone both live and through their radios. 7 pm at MOCA Grand Avenue. Free.

Petrossian in West Hollywood holds a Caviar 101 class tonight and tomorrow. For $35 (not including tax or tip), guests have the opportunity to sample up to the three types of caviar and two roes, paired with either a glass of Champagne or a flute of vodka. Chef Giselle Wellman will also serve additional small plates that showcase caviar. 7:30-8 pm. Reservations are recommended by calling (310) 271-0576 or online.

There are a number of film happenings tonight and this weekend. Dances with Films bills itself as “one of the last truly independent film festivals,” takes over the Laemmle Sunset 5 in WeHo runs through June 9.
