DOCUMENTARY FILM: The Egyptian Theatre hosts ITVS Community Cinema’s Independent Lens Documentary Series tonight at 7:30. On the big screen is Lioness, a film about women in combat. “They went to Iraq as cooks, clerks and mechanics and returned a year later as part of America's first generation of female combat veterans. Despite an official government policy that states that women are not supposed to partake in direct ground combat, the five women featured here most certainly did.” Admission is free and there will be a panel discussion following the film.
TEEVEE: As you read earlier on LAist, the Paley Center hosts “An Evening with Everyday Italian’s Giada De Laurentiis” tonight at 7:30. Tickets are $60. (There's a tasting reception afterward.)
ICE CREAM*: Scoops on Heliotrope is mixing politics and ice cream tonight from 7-10 pm. It’s an Obama-inspired ice cream social/get out the vote/fundraiser. Scoops's flavor master Tai Kim took suggestions for ice cream flavors inspired by Obama, the election and customer’s hopes for the future of the country. “From Oct 27-31, selections from the flavor pool will be served at Scoops and 20 percent of the proceeds from that week will go toward the Obama Victory fund.”
