30 Free Things to Do in LA Any Time

Claudette Colbert in Cleopatra

See a Double Feature of a Screen Legend
Before Liz Taylor there was Claudette Colbert, and you can see her interpretation of the pharaoh fatale in Cecil B. DeMille’s Cleopatra at 7:30 p.m. The 35mm palatial intrigue doesn’t end there, however, as Colbert’s Empress Poppaea goes toe to toe with Charles Laughton’s Nero in The Sign of the Cross immediately after. This double feature of antiquity marks the beginning of UCLA’s “The Greatest Showman” retrospective, which is ongoing throughout January and February. Mark A. Vieira, co-author of Cecil B. DeMille: The Art of the Hollywood Epic, will appear in person to sign copies of the book starting at 6:30. Billy Wilder Theater, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., Wstwd.; Fri., Jan. 9, 7:30 p.m.; $10. (310) 206-8013, cinema.ucla.edu. —Michael Nordine
