Tap Dancing About Architecture
Given L.A.'s reinvigorated interest in studying and preserving its architectural history, it's only fitting that the city is playing host to the Architecture and Design Film Festival - a five-day symposium of films, discussions and book signings for the edifice-minded. The site is the Los Angeles Theatre Center, itself a recently renovated jewel in downtown's landmark building-design crown. Check the website for an extensive run-down of speakers and events, featuring dozens of high-profile and up-and-coming voices, and more than 30 films both short-form and feature-length, curated into thematic programs. Single-event tickets and festival passes are available, and the panel discussions are all free to attend. Be sure to leave yourself extra time to take a walk around the historic core neighborhood - an area famously crowded with architectural riches of its own. Los Angeles Theatre Center, 514 S. Spring St., dwntwn.; Wed., March 12-Sun., March 16, various times; $14-$130. (213) 489-0994, adfilmfest.com.
March 12-16, 2014 (Expired: 03/16/14)
