9. FILM: Downtown 30 from Outfest
The top LGBT film festival organization Outfest celebrates its 30th year, starting with a screening of Barbra Streisand's landmark directorial debut, Yentl, a film also celebrating its 30th anniversary. Streisand stars as Anshel, a brilliant woman who must disguise herself as a man to study the Talmud. Once she becomes “Yeshiva boy” Yentl, she is forced to hide her love for classmate Avigdor (Mandy Patinkin), even if it means marrying the beautiful Hadass (Oscar nominee Amy Irving). Tickets can be purchased at BrownPaperTickets.com or the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles, where the film screens Wednesday at 7 p.m.
