Pencil This In: Monday
There’s a number of good films being screened around town tonight.
FILM: See the musical that made Wicked possible: the 1939 musical The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy, Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow are off to see the Wizard in Emerald City on the big screen at the ArcLight Sherman Oaks tonight at 7:30. Tickets: $9-$11.50.
FESTIVAL*: Billing itself as the "last independent film festival," the Dances with Films fest started on last week and continues until Thursday. “Holding all the screenings at the Sunset 5, this year's slate of films consists of, well, a bunch of filmmakers we've never heard of. How's about that for truth in advertising?” Tonight’s lineup includes a screening of short films at 5 pm, followed by Eastern College at 7:15, where four recently graduated college roommates spend their last summer in a small town, experiencing their changing relationships and the possibility that their alma mater might be shut down due to new administration. Ending the evening is Junction at 9:30. Michaela, a lost and lonely young woman, gets a mysterious message from the father she never knew, sending her on a journey to discover twisted family secrets.
