MOVIES

Ciao! Manhattan For a brief moment in the 1960s, "it girl" and Andy Warhol disciple Edie Sedgwick captivated New York. "Ciao! Manhattan," a barely veiled portrait of Sedgwick that blurs the lines between fiction and reality, captures the magnetism and the tragedy of the doomed star. Co-director David Weisman and costars Wesley Hayes and Jeff Briggs will be on hand to discuss the film. Silent Movie Theatre, 611 N. Fairfax Ave., L.A. 8 p.m. $12. (323) 655-2510. http://www.cinefamily.org.

EVENTS

Los Angeles Skate Festival Los Angeles finally has its very own ode to the popular subculture of skateboarding with the 1st Los Angeles Skate Festival. Before videos of athletes performing breathtaking tricks on four small wheels surfaced in the film and video world, skateboarding did not enjoy the popularity that it does today. This new festival aims to shed even more light on the art of filming this exciting sport. The Downtown Independent Theater, 251 S. Main St., L.A. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Tues. and Wed. Show times vary. $12. (213) 617-1033, www.thelaskatefilmfestival.com.
