Movie: Ruby Sparks at The Landmark
We just can’t wait to see this movie that supposedly pops right off the page chock full of Zoe Kazan cuteness and Paul Dano intensity from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine. We recommend the 7:20 screening, where the directors will conduct a Q&A after the movie! Tickets are $12.50 with a $1.00 service charge.

Movie: Clueless at Beverly Canon Gardens
Not only is the irony of watching a FREE screening of Clueless in Beverly Hills awesome, the movie itself is hilarious enough to “roll-in with your homies” to see Paul Rudd in one of his first roles. The movie starts at 8 pm, but be sure to leave plenty of your time because “everywhere in LA takes 20 minutes”.
