Whether you want to stare at Joan Crawford's eyebrows or watch women in gorilla masks talk about feminism, there are plenty of entertainment options in Denver this week. Read on for our picks of three very different things to do in Denver that share one thing in common: They're all free. If you know of more great free events, post them in the comments section below. And, as always, visit the online Westword calendar for a complete compilation of activities in town.The Guerrilla Girls at the University of Denver (Monday, free)
Fighting on behalf of feminism, the Guerrilla Girls don masks to expose patriarchy in all its forms. They'll bring their fun, political show to the University of Denver's Malone Theater tonight for a special performance.Torch Song at the Denver Central Library (Tuesday, free)
See queen of the screen Joan Crawford star in this 1953 classic, where she plays a neurotic Broadway star who falls in love with a rehearsal pianist. Tonight's screening will showcase Crawford in all her glory.
Inside-Out at Gildar Gallery (Thursday, free) New York artist Dan Asher is the focus of this Gildar Gallery exhibition, which places the renowned painter's pieces alongside works by Colorado artists Margaret Neumann and William Stockman. The theme, obviously, is inside-out -- but you can be an insider at tonight's free opening.
