ART: Venice’s G2 Gallery hosts a new exhibit tonight “A Life Well Lived 40 Years in the Making” featuring works by renowned environmental photographer Robert Glenn Ketchum. Ketchum will be at the gallery for a lecture on his career, his works and his environmental involvement.

FILM: Writer Ray Bradbury introduces Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983) tonight at the Egyptian Theatre. He wrote the screenplay, which was adapted by his own novel, tale of a weird carnival hitting a small town and “bringing with it Mr. Dark (Jonathan Pryce), a sinister impresario who will mystify young boys Will and Jim (Vidal Peterson and Shawn Carson) and bewitch many of the town’s inhabitants with apparent answers to their dreams. Or is it their nightmares?” Jason Robards, the older single dad of Will and a reclusive librarian who has given up on life, suddenly finds himself challenged by the mysteriously seductive threat – he may be the one person who can save the town from Mr. Dark – and itself.”
