Weekly What To Do: Art, Gators & Horror School

January 19, 2022 - January 23, 2022
Los Angeles Convention Center
South Hall
Single Day $33.03
The LA Art show is back at the LA Convention center. See a huge collection from local galleries and galleries from all over the world. Get on the ridiculous NFT train this year. We wonder how exactly they will be displayed. Do they put them out on 4k TVs or just show them on their phones? It's gonna be weird. If going, try and count how many times you hear NFTs said out loud at the show. Do not make it a drinking game or you'll probably die of alcohol poisoning.
1/21/22 - 1/30/22
Los Feliz Theatre
1822 N Vermont Ave Los Angeles, CA 90027
 Film has taught us many things, one being that Alligators and Crocodiles can attack anywhere at any moment.  Whether you are in Florida, Maine, Texas, the Windy City, or abroad, be on the lookout for Killer Crocs, teams of hungry gators, alligator people, and Burt Reynolds. This month, the AC stands for “Alligators and Crocodiles” as we pay tribute to their finest film appearances with LAKE PLACID alongside Betty White, the Roky Erickson favorite THE ALLIGATOR PEOPLE, Tobe Hooper’s EATEN ALIVE, the modern masterwork CRAWL, the notorious KILLER CROCODILE and the 4K restoration of the John Sayles penned classic ALLIGATOR. Plus, the most destructive creature of all, GATOR, starring Burt Reynolds.

The Spring Cycle
Between Two Dimensions
January 22 – March 5, 2022
Roberts Projects
5801 Washington Boulevard
Culver City, California 90232
Roberts Projects is pleased to announce The Spring Cycle, an exhibition of new paintings, drawings and photographs by Ed Templeton that are a direct response to the suburban environment he lives in. These new works create hyperbolic realities that scrutinize the human condition through the lens of urban isolation. The exhibition runs January 22nd - March 5th, 2022, with an artist reception on the night of Saturday, March 5th from 4-7pm. Between Two Dimensions is an ongoing exploration of both the material world and and the transcendental. A space where time is boundless, unrestrained, full of wonder. A place where liberation flies upon the wings of resistance. Cradled between the arms of all things hoped for and all things yet to be seen.

Instructor: Shamya Dasgupta
They were a family of outsiders, who moved to Mumbai from Karachi during the Partition of India, and set up a shop selling and repairing radios. In the 1970s, they transitioned to film producing and, one fateful night while observing the reactions of the crowd in a movie theater, made the decision to pursue the genre that would define their career. In this lecture, Shamya Dasgupta, author of Don’t Disturb the Dead: The Story of the Ramsay Brothers, will detail how seven brothers with a business background embraced every aspect of filmmaking—while economizing at every opportunity—to become India’s first horror film factory and a genre unto themselves. They made a splash in Bollywood, but just like in the movies, their tale has a rise, a fall, and eventual redemption. Join us to learn why, even today, decades later, the Ramsay name is synonymous with horror in India.

Largo, known for comedy shows, is back open and selling out shows. Grab some tickets before everything sells out. Many new shows from some of LA's top comedians. We see Bill Burr, Patton Oswalt, Pete Holmes and Sarah Silverman to name a few.
