Los Angeles Events: Guillermo del Toro And Open Projector Night

Today's events list is focused on film and filmmakers in Los Angeles. Catch director Guillermo del Toro talk about his monster movies (past and future) at the ArcLight Hollywood, or director Jonas Jacobs at the Skirball Cultural Center after the screening of his documentary No Way To Say Goodbye. If you're a rising filmmaker, bring your stuff to the Hammer Museum for Open Projector Night--where it could be skewered by host MCs and comedians Jason and Randy Sklar. And for kitschy fun, check out the screening of five retro "very special episodes" at the Silent Movie Theatre.
