Free public star parties are held monthly with the assistance of the Los Angeles Astronomical Society and the Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers.  Look at the sun, moon, visible planets, and other objects, try out a variety of telescopes, and to talk to knowledgeable amateur astronomers about the sky and the equipment they use.

YOGA OVERLOOKING THE PACIFIC: Practice yoga for  FREE at “Yoga On The Pier” Summer Series and complimentary continental breakfast at  The Beachcomber Café. Sponsored by KIISFM and 98.7 FM, the series runs from June 19-September 4.  Just show up at the Malibu Pier with your mat on these Saturday mornings from 8:45am to 10am. It’s first come,  first served. The Malibu Pier is a historic Southern California icon that was closed for 12 years due to storm damage, and reopened last summer to the public.  Built in 1905, the Malibu pier has been the scene of TV and movie filming, such as “The Rockford Files,” “Gidget,” and  ”Beach Blanket Bingo.”  During World War II, the pier was used as a lookout post and later, Alice’s Restaurant (inspired by the Arlo Guthrie song) served its famous B-52 cocktail.

LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL: The 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival will screen over 200 independent feature films, shorts, and music videos, representing more than 40 countries at downtown venues, plus special screenings at the Ford Ampitheatre,  through June 27.  There are also conversations, coffee talks and poolside chats with writers, directors and actors. Universal Pictures will close the festival with world premiere of the 3-D CGI Despicable Me, starring Steve Carrel. The festival opened on June 17 with Focus Features The Kids are Alright, starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore. www.lafilmfest.com
