ZENTANGLE
A Creative Class for Adults

A zentangle is a doodle gone wild! Specifically, a zentangle is beautifully intricate patterns, repeated. Follow patterns, or invent your own. You do not have to be an artist to have fun doing this. Researchers have found that this mindful doodling helps relieve tension and quiet anxiety. Join us for a relaxing evening. Supplies are provided. Please sign up by calling 818 238-5580.

FLORENCE FOSTER-JENKINS
A British-French film set in 1940s New York, the film is based on the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her husband and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth.
110 minutes / Rated PG-13
