July 6 – Take in Dinner and a Movie at the Autry National Center, Mexicali Rose plays tonight. For a mere $15 some sort of dinner is served in the plaza area beginning at 5pm, then at 7:30 the movie is screened at the Wells Fargo Theatre. Other options would be July 13 (In Old Monterey), July 20 (South of the Border) or July 27 (Down Mexico Way). Or, if you’re like every other semi-normal person and have numerous Thursday evenings at your disposal then you really won’t want to miss the Sizzling Summer Nights Live Music Series in August. For $5 enjoy live music and dancing from 6pm – 9pm with some of the hottest Latin bands in town. Make sure to check the calendar for more information.
July 13 – this one is a no-brainer for me. Finally go on the Downtown Art Walk held on the 2nd Thursday of every month and sponsored by the Gallery Row Organization.
July 20 – Go see the SpyAnts new show, The Reunion: Everything Changes, Everyone Stays the Same. In this production the Howard Fine Acting Studio will be converted into the fictional Woodrow Wilson High School of Woodland Hills hosting the 10 year reunion of the class of 1984. The inspiration for this piece came from a play called Tamara which had an extended run in Los Angeles in the 1980’s. In the SpyAnts piece you can follow one character throughout the evening or switch to another if that suits your fancy. Maybe some day soon the 'Ants will get their website updated and it will have more detailed info on the concept.
Movies, Music, Art and Theatre. How cultured am I? Anyone wanna join in on the festivities?
