Things to do for December 12, 2013

The Weekender

Nicholson, Some Sex Pistols and Kevin McCallister

The Weinsteins would never sue the weekend.

Thursday
A Downtown Chinatown Screening
POINT JAKE

A Downtown Chinatown Screening

Tonight, you’ll catch some vintage Jack Nicholson in a screening of Chinatown at the Million Dollar Theatre. Which just happens to be the old Water District Building where William Mulholland pulled the shady water deals that Chinatown is based on. Hopefully this gives everybody some closure.

FENNING THE FLAMES

g.Colton Pops Up in Lawson-Fenning

Stockings. They remain unstuffed. Garrett Colton’s throwing you a life raft (okay, a pop-up shop) at Silver Lake’s Lawson-Fenning, with wine stoppers, candles and letterpress notepads you would’ve found at his old Beverly shop (RIP) and said, “Hey, that’d be a good gift.” So now you can polish off that old chestnut.

Friday
A Wild Party in a Trashed Hotel Room
VICIOUS CIRCLE

A Wild Party in a Trashed Hotel Room

In 1977, Dennis Morris shot iconic photos of Sid Vicious. In 2013, Shepard Fairey turned them into paintings. On Friday, you’ll see both in a replica of a hotel room Vicious trashed while a punk supergroup with Billy Idol and Steve Jones plays. Just another stuffy art show...

Home Alone in 30 Minutes
YOU CAN GO HOME AGAIN

Home Alone in 30 Minutes

You’ve never seen Home Alone. Okay, you’ve seen Home Alone. But not as a 30-minute musical with Chaz Bono playing Kevin’s dad. So time to cross that off the list at Hudson Backstage this weekend, with other songs from films like Gremlins and Die Hard. Those heartwarming Christmas classics.

Tuesday
Like Loteria for Sandwiches
TORT OF CALL

Like Loteria for Sandwiches

For 11 years, Loteria’s given you the wonderful gift of tacos. Next week, the owner is starting a new chapter. A Mexican-sandwich chapter. There will be chicken Milanese tortas, turkey-mole tortas and pulled-pork-adobada tortas. No tacos. But there’s also a new Loteria next door...

Hoping to open by Dec 17, Torta Co., 735 S Figueroa St, 213-438-6782
