Host Martha Barnette of radio’s A Way With Words will pose questions to the inspiring writer/mother of three (Diffenbaugh has also raised six foster children). Proceeds benefit Words Alive!, a nonprofit that uses literature to enrich the lives of low-income kids, teens, and adults. November 13, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. wordsalive.org
13th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival
Eden, Love Strikes! UltraStar
Coming soon to a theater near you...
Move over, Cinepolis. ArcLight Cinemas, a Hollywood import, is taking over the top floor of the ol’ Robinsons-May at Westfield UTC. ArcLight’s 14 screens will show new blockbusters as well as classics, indie films, and cult faves—with no commercials beforehand. The seating is reserved, so grab some caramel corn (or a cocktail) from the outdoor café and get comfy in the 25-inch-wide seats with retractable armrests. First showing is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2, at 12:01 a.m. on November 16. Moms of Twihards, enjoy the flick with a side of vodka.
