Although it has been more than 30 years since he did it, Buck Henry has hosted Saturday Night Live 10 times (that's twice as many as Justin Timberlake). The versatile comedian co-wrote The Graduate, co-created Get Smart with Mel Brooks, and was nominated for an Oscar in 1979 for directing Heaven Can Wait. Add to that 60 acting credits and you have the undeniable makings of a legend. For this event, “Lost & Found at the Movies: The Art of Adapting,” the 83-year-old Henry will join Sundance Festival senior programmer John Nein to discuss screenplay adaptation. It's probably best to save any questions about John Belushi's unhinged samurai for another day. The event is sold out, but they release tickets from no-shows an hour before the event. Be there at 6:30 p.m. for the first-come, first-served line. Los Angeles Central Library, 630 W. Fifth St., dwntwn.; Mon., Aug 25, 7:30 p.m.; free. (213) 228-7500,

Mon., Aug. 25, 7:30 p.m., 2014
