11:00 AM Film: Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios In commemoration of the Digital Gym Cinema's 5th birthday, we are thrilled to announce a week-long series featuring seven iconic films celebrating their own anniversaries in 2018. The sixth film installation of this series is Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios celebrating its 30th anniversary! Pedro Almodóvar's crowning screwball farce is an eccentrically comic battle of the sexes in which several scorned women begin to lash out against the men who have wronged them. Almodovar's most successful comedy features performances from the inimitable Carmen Maura, Rossy de Palma, and Antonio Banderas.

Admission/Cost: $7.50 - $11

Location:
Digital Gym Cinema

San Diego, CA 92014

6:00 PM Film: Finding Your Feet Everyone deserves a second dance. Richard Loncraine's frisky, bouncy little charmer features a crackerjack British cast headed by Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie, David Hayman and Joanna Lumley. A snooty suburbanite (Imelda Staunton) discovers her husband's long-running affair and leaves her posh mansion to stay with her eccentric, free-spirited sister (Celia Imrie) in a cluttered North London flat.

Admission/Cost: FREE

7:00 PM Talk: The Japanese-Americans in the Gaslamp Join Lecturer Linda Canada, outreach coordinator of the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego, to learn about the influence of the Japanese Americans who lived and worked in the Gaslamp. A special guest will be Yukio Kawamoto, whose parents operated the immigrant hotel once known as "the Anchor," located on the top floor of the Royal Pie Bakery on Fourth Avenue.

The boom years of the 1880s brought an influx of people seeking opportunity in San Diego. Among this wave of newcomers were Japanese seeking a new life here. Many were involved in the fishing and farming communities, and several families operated businesses catering to fellow Japanese. Prior to World War Two, Japanese were part of the burgeoning commercial community within the Gaslamp Quarter. Join us as we take a closer look into the stories and contributions of Japanese and Japanese Americans who helped shape the history of this vibrant and multi-cultural district.

History Talks! is a monthly lecture series presented by the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House. Each month a local historian or specialist delves into topics related to San Diego and the Davis-Horton House to bring a unique glimpse into the history of our city.

Lectures are free for members, $5 non-members.

Admission/Cost: FREE - $5

Location:
Gaslamp Museum
Davis-Horton House
410 Island Avenue
San Diego, CA 92101
