Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.
10:00 am - 12:00 pm - Laemmle Fallbrook Theatre, 6731 Fallbrook Ave. West Hills, CA
This beautiful documentary tells about Bronislaw Huberman, a Polish Jew who defied Nazi Germany through his musical talents. After achieving world-wide fame as a virtuoso violinist, Huberman chose 70 Jewish musicians who had been fired by Nazi authorities and moved them to Palestine to form the Palestine Symphony (the future Israel Philharmonic). â€śOrchestra of Exilesâ€ť is a love-song to music and to human ideals, told through rarely seen historic photographs, film footage, and exquisite musical recordings. 85 minutes. Followed by Q & A with CSUN Jewish Studies faculty.
CENDRILLON by Jules Massenet. Libretto by Henri Cain.
This Massenet opera approaches the classic French fairy tale, Cinderella, with a musical sense of humor---wonderfully frothy and liberally spiced with dry Gallic wit. This is one grand ball you'll not want to miss. Sung in French with English supertitles. Directed by Maurice Godin. Musical direction by David Aks.

This is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work depicts visions of future dystopias based on a turbulent present. Desert wastelands, faux fallen satellites, devises designed to ensure your survival and a world seemingly run by giant computer servers; the artists in this show offer a prescient window into a world that not only may be, but in some places, already exists.
Artists include Lisa Adams, Libby Clarke, Daniel Dove, Trygve Faste, Sean Higgins, Kelly McLane, Thomas Muller and Klutch Stanaway.
