Today's Arts Events

Arts & Culture
Jul 30, 2014 — In London, a matinee ticket for Matilda costs about $60; in New York, it's $137. What's going on? The West End has weaker unions and subsidized theater, while Broadway has amenities.
Jul 30, 2014 — From silent stars to John Wayne to Iron Man, film critic Bob Mondello looks at the role that Hollywood has played in defining manliness, and how that definition has changed over several decades.
Jul 30, 2014 — Syfy channel has cornered the market on a new kind of film: a movie that's played completely straight, but constructed to look cheesy and easy to ridicule. The best example? Sharknado 2, the sequel to a film so bad it became huge success. Can the network strike gold twice by being stupid on purpose?
Jul 30, 2014 — Look, of course Sharknado 2 is stupid. That's not the question. The question is whether it still makes a good party game.
Jul 30, 2014 — Is Comic-Con as overwhelming as you've heard? Well ... yes and no. Mostly yes. But on the other hand, it's also completely fascinating, even to nervous first-timers.
