You don't really have to know that much about art and literature to enjoy Woody Allen's Oscar-nominated film, "Midnight in Paris," but it sure helps.
The movie, which time travels to 1920s Paris, when Hemingway and Picasso roamed the streets, is peppered with references and inside jokes. If you think some of those may have gone over your head, you may want to sign up for the San Diego Museum of Art's First Friday Films series.
Before a screening of "Midnight in Paris," you'll be able to see Picassos and Modiglianis from the museum's latest exhibition, "A Harmony of Line," and hear curators Dr. Ariel Plotek and Dr. John Marciari discuss the work. Then, as you watch the film, you can laugh right along, just like your fellow art connoisseurs.
Details: 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3rd. San Diego Museum of Art, Balboa Park. $5 for students, seniors and members, $10 general admission; $40 for food and wine package. 619.696.1935 or sdmart.org.
