Pencil This In: Tuesday
TALK: Zócalo asks “Are the Teachers Unions Too Powerful?” tonight at the Los Angeles Public Library’s Mark Taper Auditorium at 7:30. Moderated by Joe Matthews, Irvine Senior Fellow, New America Foundaton, a panel will examine the “promise and limits of the power of the teachers’ unions.” Panelists: Joshua Pechthalt, a vice president of United Teachers Los Angeles; Mikki Cichocki, a board member of the California Teachers Association; David Tokofsky, a former school board member in LAUSD; and Caprice Young, another former LAUSD board member and now CEO of the California Charter Schools Association.
FILM: The Egyptian Theatre is hosting a double-feature of The Fly tonight at 7:30. Co-presented with the LA Opera (because of their own Fly production), the 1958 version screens first with Vincent Price, Patricia Owens and David Hedison. The Return of the Fly (1959) follows with the mad scientist’s son taking over where daddy left off. There’s a discussion between films scheduled with actors David Hedison and Brett Halsey.
