Saturday is the perfect day to come to LACMA if you’re looking for something fun—and free!—to do with your family. As part of Target’s Arts & Wonder Weekend, LACMA is free all day tomorrow! We are one of eighty other institutions around the country who are opening our doors for free thanks to Target. We’re open from 11 am–8 pm, but be sure to bring your kids between 12 and 5 pm for some fun art-making activities on the Los Angeles Times Central Court. (With or without children, this is also a good excuse to come see the John Baldessari show, too.)
Concerts, we’ve got ‘em: tonight the CJS Quintet performs as part of Jazz at LACMA. You can sample songs from their latest album at their website. Tomorrow for Latin Sounds the salsa group Costazul will take to Hancock Park, and Sunday evening will see an Homage to Chopin in the Bing Theater. All of these concerts are free.
Meanwhile our Ernst Lubitsch film series continues into its second weekend. Tonight we have the double feature of Design for Living and the Maurice Chevalier musical The Smiling Lieutenant. Tomorrow, the classic The Shop around the Corner followed by Angel, starring Marlene Dietrich. Shop contains one of James Stewart’s great performances—even if he did ignore the fact that he was supposed to be Hungarian. It’s the folksiest small-town shop you’ll ever find in Budapest.
