Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:
The Lodger wasn't Alfred Hitchcock's first film, but it was, in the director's own words, the "first true Hitchcock movie." Yes, it's about dead blonds. It's also one of today's entries in the Hitchcock 9, a minifestival of Hitch's existing silent films, all freshly restored with new scores performed by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra. Catch them all at Music Box.
The 38th annual Armenian Festival celebrates Armenian food and culture, with live music and dancing, raffles, and an appearance by chef Carrie Nahabedian of Naha and Brindille.
