Viddy well, Long Beach! This weekend, your humble narrator strongly advises you attend Stanley Kubrick's real horrorshow picture A Clockwork Orange, unspooling at the Art Theatre. Dress as one of those dashing droogs and get in for only $5. Bring your own moloko.

If you prefer your milk with Kahlua, Insomniac Cinema presents the Coen Brothers' midnight mainstay, The Big Lebowski. Last week, founder Andrew Gualtieri broke the sad news that the program's host theater, the Regency Fairfax, is in real danger of losing its lease, so now is the time to show in droves. Sure, parking's a bitch, but this aggression will not stand, man! And while you're over there, go see Let The Right One In if you haven't already. Or even if you have.
