Treat yourself to dinner and a movie at L.A. LIVE this weekend. The package deal includes a great meal at one of six participating restaurants – Lawry’s Carvery, ESPNZone, Katsuya, L.A. Market, Wolfgang Puck and Trader Vic’s – and a movie ticket to a regularly scheduled film at Regal Cinemas 14. If you like super intense, dramatic slow-mo action as your after-dinner treat, Prometheus opens this Friday. Packages can be purchased in restaurant and prices range from $20 to $30 per person. Try to call your restaurant of choice in advance to secure reservations. (Metro Blue/Expo Line to Pico Station, Metro Bus 81 to Figueroa/11th.)
In the mood for some Shakespeare? The Downtown Repertory Theatre Company is putting on “The Tempest” at Pico House on Olvera Street. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free but donations after the shows are welcome. It’s a good idea to reserve tickets in advance, however, as space is limited. Pico House is located across the street from Union Station which is served by Metro Red, Purple and Gold Lines. Use Trip Planner to find the easiest bus route.
For hilarity, music and a huge dose of weird, visit the Addams Family at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. Friday’s showing starts at 8 p.m. and there are two showings on both Saturday and Sunday. Tickets start at $25 and are available for purchase online. (Metro Red Line to Hollywood/Vine Station, Metro Bus 180 to Hollywood/Argyle.)
