Looking for Something to Do? Free Events Nov. 1 to 7

Here are events scheduled Saturday, Nov. 1, to Friday, Nov. 7.

All events are free, so take a look -- and don't you dare say there's nothing to do in Pasadena!   

The first Tuesday of every month from 4 to 8 p.m. is free family night at Kidspace Children's Museum. On Tuesday, Nov. 4, you and your children will celebrate California native cultures as you create Chumash-inspired cave paintings, explore native instruments and music and enjoy Native American storytelling.

Celebrate the 120th anniversary of Vroman's Bookstore Tuesday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. Chairman of the Board Joel Sheldon and CEO/President Allison Hill will present an entertaining talk on the history of Vroman's from 1894 to modern times. 

"To Have and Have Not" (1944) starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall will be shown Wednesday, Nov. 5, at 1 p.m. in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium at Pasadena Central Library. During World War II an American expatriate helps transport a French resistance leader and his wife to Martinique while romancing a lounge singer.

"Life is Beautiful" (1997, PG-13) starring Roberto Benigni and Nicoletta Braschi will be shown Friday, Nov. 7, at 1 p.m. in the Scott Pavilion at the Pasadena Senior Center. A Jewish man has a wonderful romance with the help of his humor but must use that same quality to protect his son in a Nazi death camp. You do not have to be a member of the Pasadena Senior Center to attend. 

The first Friday of every month from noon to 5 p.m. is free admission day at Pasadena Museum of California Art (also the third Thursday from 5 to 8). On Friday, Nov. 7, enjoy the current exhibitions plus everything else PMCA has to offer.

The first Friday of every month from 5 to 8 p.m. is free admission night at Norton Simon Museum. On Friday, Nov. 7, enjoy the current exhibitions Lock, Stock and Barrel: Norton Simon's Purchase of Duveen Brothers Gallery and Home and Away: The Printed Works of Ruth Asawa, plus everything else the museum has to offer.
