Friday Nights at the de Young are after-hours art happenings that include a mix of live music, dance and theater performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and exhibition tours. Local artists conduct drop-in workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in conversations about the creative process. The café offers a delicious prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails, and the Hamon Tower observation level is open until 8 pm.

The Asphalt Jungle (1950, 104 min) is a naturalistic film noir classic (resembling numerous B-films) of the early 1950s directed by John Huston. The realistic, documentary-like, urban crime/heist film, advertised as "A John Huston Production," is one of the first films that completely detailed how to pull off an authentic-looking heist—considered morally improper under the Motion Picture Production Code.

James Turrell's "Three Gems" open during Friday Nights!

With an emphasis on spontaneity, melodic story-telling, and deep grooves, this highly-adaptable collection of musicians under the leadership of trumpeter/composer Darren Johnston is steeped in jazz traditions but finds ways to organically weave their combined musical interests into a curious new blend of roots/art/dance music that defies category.
