Hot Tickets: Los Angeles

Here are this week’s hot tickets in the Los Angeles area. Check back every Monday at noon, PST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Thursday, January 14TV Tuesday presents The Other Glass Teat: More of Harlan Ellison on Television! – Experience Harlan Ellison’s TV writing with the Cinefamily! From their website:

One of America’s most prolific and dangerous writers, Harlan Ellison radicalized science fiction from the 1960s onwards with swirling, shouting, freaky, psychedelic and sexual visions realized across over 1,700 short stories, novellas, screenplays and essays. That would be enough for most — but Ellison is also one of the great TV writers, responsible for iconic episodes of The Outer Limits and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, to penning the most popular episode of the original Star Trek, and much, much more. And, somewhere in there, he even found the time to write “The Glass Teat”, a seminal work still considered one of the most important and scathing books ever written on the nature of television. Join guest moderator Josh Olson (Oscar-nominated screenwriter of A History of Violence) for a very special evening, as Harlan makes a very rare and highly spirited personal appearance at Cinefamily to discuss his love/hate relationship with TV, followed by a screening of several of his best episodes!

Hot Tickets: Boston

Every Thursday at noon, EST, Brown Paper Tickets posts upcoming events happening in the Boston area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Saturday, October 22 Beyond the Myth – Boston Screening  Beyond the Myth is a film about dog breeds commonly referred to as”pit bulls” and those who love these breeds. Viewers are taken on a journey to four U.S. cities where Breed Specific Legislation focusing on “pit bulls” has profoundly impacted people and animals: Denver, Miami, Cincinnati, and San Francisco. The documentary intelligently explores the contributing factors behind the public’s generalized fear of “pit bulls”, and examines the conflict existing between advocates and opponents of breed discriminatory laws, commonly referred to as breed bans. It also investigates the myths associated with these breeds, challenges the idea that they are inherently vicious, presents eye-opening research regarding the media’s role in influencing people’s opinion on dog attacks.

Saturday, October 22 Brian Peters The Folk Song Society of Greater Boston is please to present Brian Peters, a performer of traditional folk music who combines a high level of skill on three different instruments with a great voice and an energetic stage presence.
