(OCT. 1) Has it been a while since you’ve taken the kids to the Huntington Garden? Fall is the perfect time, when it’s warm enough to let the kids splash in the Children’s Garden (don’t forget the change of clothes – they will get drenched!), yet not too hot to walk around (carrying tired kids, or pushing heavy strollers). And Wednesday is the perfect day, when there is Traditional Chinese music in the Garden of Flowing Fragrance. Seriously, don’t you feel more relaxed just saying that?

Discussion before the film with director John Carpenter and actress Jamie Lee Curtis, moderated by Geoff Boucher.
A landmark in modern horror, and one of the most phenomenally successful independent films ever made, John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN set the standard for dozens of oversexed-teens-meet-serial killer movies to come, including SCREAM and SCARY MOVIE. Jamie Lee Curtis (in her first major role) stars as the resilient Laurie, aware that evil stalks the shady streets and living rooms of her small town in the form of escaped psychopath Michael Myers. Co-starring Donald Pleasence, P.J. Soles and Nancy Loomis.

You can't keep a good band down -- legendary prog rock pioneers King Crimson ended a five-year hiatus in 2014 with the announcement of a fall US tour. The group has called it quits several times over the decades, but their love of music and passion for performing always bring them back to the stage. The band's current lineup -- its eighth since 1969 -- includes founder and primary creative force Robert Fripp alongside three drummers, two guitar players, and a flutist-saxophonist. Beloved for their virtuosic musicianship and extended live jamming, the veteran performers will take fans on an unforgettable musical journey through their hallowed discography on their An Evening with King Crimson tour.
