Naked
Theater events
Fairfax Ave
Movies projected on actual film are a rarity these days, 16mm doubly so. Cinefamily offers an exception to the rule with Mike Leigh’s  Naked, a classic of the ’90s featuring David Thewlis’ greatest performance (sorry, Professor Lupin fans). He plays Johnny, a miserable but philosophically minded Londoner ranting his way through the streets at all hours of the night — the kind of character it can be hard to root for but even more difficult to turn away from.

Slurring Bee L.A.
Musical events
Santa Monica Blvd.
Some people like to show off by proving how smart they are to a bunch of strangers. Other people like to show off by drinking profusely without vomiting. At the inaugural  Slurring Bee L.A., showoffs of either ilk can, well, show off. The game is simple: Pay five bucks and get a fruity shot and a word to spell; get it right, and get a free shot for each round you stay standing (literally and figuratively). Hosts Billy Parker and Mandy Levy have toured the Bee to Cincinnati, NYC and Chicago — now Angelenos have the chance to slur themselves to victory and a slot in the Tournament of Champions.

Eleni Mandell Tribute
Theater events
Westlake
For nearly 20 years, Eleni Mandell has released a series of uniformly consistent pop albums. The local singer-songwriter and member of harmonizing supertrio The Living Sisters might occasionally shift the emphasis from folk to country to jazz, but all her recordings are distinguished by gently melodic balladry and introspective lyrical observations. Mandell has never had a breakout pop hit, but her reputation has grown to the point where numerous other performers have recognized her unique voice, and tonight several of her stellar admirers gather in a benefit for the Plastic Pollution Coalition to mark the release of a tribute compilation of her songs. In addition to such peers as Priscilla Ahn and The Bird & the Bee’s Inara George, classic rocker Jackson Browne will be on hand to literally sing Mandell’s praises.

The two will discuss Houseago’s work and the “impact that visual art and music can have on each other.” Houseago’s one-eyed, 15-foot-tall bronze sculpture Giant Figure (Cyclops) is featured in the museum’s latest exhibit, “Creature,” which includes paintings, drawings, prints and more sculpture by Joseph Beuys, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, Andy Warhol and others.

Femme Frontera Filmmaker Showcase
Regular events
Echo park film center
Two of the most politicized subjects in our current political carnival are the U.S.-Mexico border and women, and the incoming administration seems more than eager to build up the former and tear down the latter. Bringing together the two, the Femme Frontera Filmmaker Showcase features short films by female directors from cities on both sides of the border. These include Laura Bustillos Jáquez’s documentary Undocumented Freedom, which follows a young man who was brought to the United States illegally as a child; The Appleseed Project by Yennifer Lucero, about a cross-border community of female musicians; and La Catrina by Illiana Lapid, in which a grieving widow becomes the Dia de los Muertos figure of death in order to find her dead husband.

Manjula, who was editor of the now-defunct online journal, Scratch, abandons the romanticized image of the starving artist and instead looks at the “economy of literature.” The collection features essays and interviews with heavyweights authors, including Orlean, Jonathan Franzen, Roxane Gay, Richard Rodriguez and Nick Hornby, in addition to lesser-known writers, editors and bloggers, who share not only how they successfully merged art and commerce, but how you, too, can do what you love while making ends meet.

HisPanic Attack
Comedy events
Second city Studio Theater
Partially inspired by President Donald Trump’s anti-Latino and -immigrant rhetoric, Second City combats all the hate with what it does best: comedy. Directed by Martin Garcia, the theater’s latest sketch show,  HisPanic Attack, mocks ethnic misconceptions about Hispanics, including the myth of foreigners stealing Americans’ jobs, and blasts stereotypical film and TV roles, such as the nanny, janitor or fiery Latina. The cast, featuring Roxana Altamirano, Mario Barra, Jorge Berrios, David Luna, Jay Pichardo, Jennifer Polania Garcia and Xochitl Romero, even sings a parody of “Part of Your World” from  The Little Mermaid  to spoof Trump’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Dredd
Theater events
Nuart theatre
A new cult classic whose small but devoted following is still hoping against hope for a sequel, 2012’s Dredd is, like a lot of dystopian sci-fi, the kind of movie whose vision of the future seems a lot less implausible now than it did on Nov. 7. Karl Urban takes over for Sylvester Stallone in this remake, which is ultraviolent but less concerned with merely serving as the prelude to yet another installment than most would-be franchise starters. I am the law!

The Jerry Maguire Video Store

“This is the stupidest incarnation of the American dream and it must be realized.” That’s the mission statement of the organizers of video collective Everything Is Terrible!, who for nearly 10 years have collected approximately 14,000 VHS copies of Jerry Maguire, Cameron Crowe’s hokey, 1996 movie about a shark-in-a-suit sports agent going through an identity crisis. Twenty years after they gave us several memorable catchphrases (forget the others, “I didn’t shoplift the pootie” was the best), EIT! pays tribute to Tom Cruise and cast with The Jerry Maguire Video Store, an art installation modeled after a ’90s-style video store comprising only VHS tapes. (They’re also planning a permanent pyramid of the videos in the desert.) Among the performances for the duration of the exhibit include Yacht, Kate Berlant, Brandon Wardell, Chrome Canyon, Daedelus, DJ Douggpound, Yung Jake and a live score of another ’90s film, Home Alone 2.

There is no one whose decision you must win or consent you must earn.  It doesn’t need to sell anything to anyone. It doesn’t need anyone to work in the company to keep it going. It neither takes from nor gives to society. It simply exists, its members benefiting from a perpetual revenue stream that requires absolutely no human input. It is an Island, an off-the-grid company,
