Daily Calendar: Catch a movie under the stars or a play-in-progress

A Monday-night movie under the stars is a little like taking a mini day off (assuming, that is, that the weather holds), making the John Hughes classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off a perfect title for Infinity Park's summer Monday Night Movie Madness series. You can see it for free tonight at dusk on the humongous JumboTron screen at Glendale's Infinity Park, 4599 E. Tennessee Avenue; picnics, blankets and families are welcome, but alcohol and dogs are not. Gates open at 7 p.m., and if you arrive foodless, check out the park's Steve's Snappin' Dogs concession for dinner fixin's. See more events after the jump. Theater of the future gets a test run periodically at Paragon Theatre's The Trench New Play Development Series, which tonight features I Know That You Love Me, a collaborative collection of dramatic vignettes by the playwriting team Broken Gopher Ink. The secretive group, which aims to be "the Sex Pistols of playwriting" and is said to be based in Colorado, is known for disturbing comedy; that's all I can tell you. And no one, they say, knows exactly who they are. Get in on on something in the works beginning at 7 p.m. at Paragon, located at Kim Robards Dance, 1378 S. Santa Fe Drive. Admission is free; go and let Paragon know what you think.
