Julia Child would have turned 97 on August 15th (when she died in 2004, she'd almost made it to 92). To honor the occasion, the Balboa Theatre (3630 Balboa at 38th Ave.) is hosting a Birthday Cake Bake-Off and Taste-a-Thon this Saturday.

"Julia had many Bay Area connections," Balboa owner Gary Meyer told us. "She went to high school at the Branson School in Marin County, and she started the American Institute of Wine & Food in Napa." On Saturday, bring a home-baked birthday cake to the Balboa and you'll get free admission to any screening of Julie & Julia that day. Afternoon and evening show times are 1:35, 4:20, 7:00, and 9:25.

Oh, and the cakes? They'll be shared by your fellow filmgoers.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
