Getting Up Guide: Movember gala, Washington Jewish film fest
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Thursday:
Bi-Annual TPS Report Managers Meeting
We're not sure when "Office Space" became a fetishized movie a la "The Big Lebowski" or "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," but in a town as wonky as Washington, we're not surprised that the tale of an under-appreciated cube-dweller turned printer-smashing gangster has struck such a nerve. Exhibit A: the Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse's "Office Space" festival that includes trivia and costume contests, a Bill Lumbergh impersonation contest and a prize for the best "O face." Tickets are $12, and doors open at 7. The fun begins at 7:45.
Washington Jewish Film Festival Opening Night
Fifty-three films representing 14 countries make up the program of the Washington Jewish Film Festival, a survey of attitudes, issues and compelling questions facing world Jewry in the 21st century. The opening-night screening is "La Rafle," a 2010 French film about the expulsion of Jews from Vichy France in 1942, featuring Melanie Laurent (Shoshanna Dreyfus in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds"). The screening at the Avalon Theatre begins at 7:45 p.m. with a reception before.
Movember Gala Party
Movember -- the annual November-long charity event that encourages men to grow mustaches to combat male cancers -- has come and gone, but you've got one last chance to flaunt your facial finery. Wax up your crumb catcher and head to George for the charity's local gala party. $20 gets you into the event, which features drink specials and prizes for the best 'staches, starting at 8 p.m.
