On a short list of the greatest screen musicals ever made, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN began with legendary MGM producer Arthur Freed giving screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green a stack of songs he'd written early in his career (with partner Nacio Herb Brown) - including "Broadway Melody," "You Are My Lucky Star" and the title song - with the simple request to weave a story around the numbers.

Whether a ravioli, a pierogi or a traditional xiaolongbao, dumplings are a religious experience for foodies. Although they are delicious on their own, they are much better with all the “associates” that come with them — think garlic or spicy dipping sauce. Upon entering this 14-room experience, guests will be met with whimsical art installations inspired by traditional dumpling associates. The exhibition will bring you on an interactive journey of how a dumpling comes to be, including the Garlic Swing (think Miley’s Wrecking Ball), the Mr. Dum-bling Bling room and the Dumpling Jacuzzi. The result is a uniquely instagrammable and delicious experience that fully immerses attendees into this culinary canon.

In Fabric
Tuesday, December 3rd, 2:00 P.M.
3131 S. Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007

A lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband, visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown—which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path.

From acclaimed horror director Peter Strickland (the singular auteur behind the sumptuous sadomasochistic romance The Duke of Burgundy and auditory giallo-homage Berberian Sound Studio) comes a truly nightmarish film, at turns frightening, seductive, and darkly humorous. Channeling voyeuristic fantasies of high fashion and bloodshed, In Fabric is Strickland’s most twisted and brilliantly original vision yet.
