As part of the Otis Speaks Series (Otis College of Art and Design), there’s a panel discussion tonight on Cultural Representation in the Media, which is being held in conjunction with Justin Guariglia’s photo exhibition, Shaolin: Temple of Zen. Otis Director of Art History Parme Giuntini, Ph.D., is joined by professors Felix Gutierrez, Lena Chao-Young and Clint C.

FILM
Writer/director Eli Roth (Hostel) has been given the keys to the New Beverly, where he’s programming the films for two weeks. The series “The Greats of Roth,” continues with a double-feature of musicals. But don’t expect West Side Story or The Sound of Music. On tap tonight is sci-fi musical The Apple and Stunt Rock, which combines action, magic and music.

COMEDY
Sarah Silverman’s at Largo tonight, sharing her comedy and Jimmy Kimmel stories. Do you think she’s still f*cking Matt Damon? Do you think she'll say anything now that Jimmy is f*cking Ben Affleck?
