FILM + TV*: And now it's time for a very special Blossom...The Silent Movie Theatre hosts TV Tuesday, an homage to made-for-TV movies, special episodes and weird commercials. “We promise a magical night where every short attention span-style flip of the channel lands you on a different amazing piece of lost television you won't be able to take your eyes off of. We've got at least two great '70s TV movies, and a whole mess of other stuff you can barely remember from years past, or can't believe existed.” This sounds awesome. Ticket prices are $8 ($5 for members).

SALSA: It’s Tuesday night, which means it’s another installment of Rumba Room’s “Summer Night Salsa” series at Universal CityWalk. Instructor Marco Antonio will give free dance lessons, backed by the salsa band La Escencia. Music and lessons start at 7:30 tonight and end at 10 pm.

FASHION: The third annual “Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design” opens today at FIDM Museum & Galleries and runs through Sept. 28. From 10 am to 4 pm Tues.-Sun., see the wardrobes from some of this year's Emmy®-nominated costume designers and costume supervisors.

CLASSICAL: Still haven't been to the Hollywood Bowl this summer? Well, it's almost August -- so it's about time to go. Tonight at 8, the LA Philharmonic, conducted by Miguel Harth-Bedoya, hosts cellist Daniel Müller-Schott in a program that features a program of Ginastera's Four Dances from "Estancia"; Saint-Saëns's Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 33; and Tchaikovsky's "Symphony No. 4"

DINNER + MOVIE: The Autry Museum provides food and film for $18 tonight. "This year's Dinner and a Movie series looks at the 'cowboys and presidents' connection in Gene Autry movies." Guest enjoy dinner, curator-led talks and in the new Cowboys and Presidents exhibition, and a classic Gene Autry Western movie. Tonight's selection: 1952's Barbed Wire. (Not the Pam Anderson movie.)
