It’s already traveled more than 33 million miles but when NASA’s robotic lander InSight touches down on the surface of Mars today, it will draw quite a big crowd of curious fans on this planet. Caltech and the Planetary Society are hosting Mars InSight Landing: Viewing Party and Dis- cussion, with live coverage of the space- craft’s landing beamed from Jet Propul- sion Laboratory. The Planetary Society’s Mat Kaplan hosts a panel discussion about InSight’s mission, which involves checking Mars’ temperature and pulse and deploy- ing a seismometer.

Creepy Carnival
It’s coming our way again. It’s the 35th anniversary of the spooky Disney classic Something Wicked This Way Comes and to celebrate, Mad Monster Movie Night is presenting a screening and Q&A.
The 1983 fantasy film, directed by Jack Clayton, was based on a Ray Bradbury novel and its literary feel is clearly no accident. The title was taken from a line in
Shakespeare’s Macbeth (“By the pricking of my thumbs/Something wicked this way comes”) and though it’s not a traditional horror film, its air of dread lives up to its ominous name thanks to a stellar cast (Jason Robards, Jonathan Pryce, Diane Ladd and Pam Grier) and a creepy carni- val backdrop. Mr. Dark’s Pandemonium Carnival, with its haunting, time-warping carousel and requisite freaks and oddities, is more than it seems, and it’ll take the will of two young boys to save everyone as the carnival sets its sinister sights on their town as winter and wickedness approach. If you’ve never seen this one, don’t miss it. Q&A to follow will feature cast and crew members Darrell Rooney, Axel Hubert and Scott De Roy. TCL Chinese Theaters, 6925 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood; Tue., Nov. 27, 9-11:30 p.m.; $12. tclchinese —lina leCaro

Creative Playdate
The reinvigorated programs at USC’s Roski School of Art and Design make for some fascinating experimental interdisciplinary forays. It’s the best of archetypal art-school shenanigans but with an expanded field of resources and conspirators that stretches across campus from the painting studio to the dance hall to the film screen. For just four days this week, students from the the- ater, film, dance and music departments are invited over for an intensive playdate with their friends from the visual arts, culminat- ing in an Intra-Arts Study Break–themed reception with music, snacks, dialogue and eclectic offerings to the fickle, fanciful gods of creative collaboration. Helen Lindhurst Fine Arts Gallery, 825 Bloom Walk, Univer- sity Park; reception: Nov. 28, 6:30-9 p.m.; on view Nov. 27-30; free. (213) 821-1290, roski. —shana nys dambrot

Secrets of Old Hollywood
Famed director Edgar Wright and former L.A. Weekly film critic Karina Longworth, who wrote 2014’s Meryl Streep: Anatomy of an Actor, discuss Longworth’s newest book, Seduction: Sex, Lies and Stardom in Howard Hughes’ Hollywood. Longworth delves into the sexual and exploitative relationship between the eccentric movie mogul and 10 actresses — some who achieved success during Hollywood’s Golden Age, others who didn’t — includ- ing Jane Russell, Jean Harlow, Ava Gardner and Katharine Hepburn, as well as lesser- known names like Faith Domergue and Billie Dove. Preceding their talk, Film at LACMA screens Max Ophüls’ 1949 drama
