Today's Features

  • For the past several years, the Los Alamos Photography Club has helped promote the appreciation of photography in Los Alamos County. This year is no different, as the LAPC, in conjunction with Mesa Public Library, hosts the 16th Annual Los Alamos Photographers’ Show.

  • Seven people — three women, four men; five Europeans, two Americans — all have the same goal: to make a new life for themselves in an emerging nation. How their lives intersect and collide is the subject of Reid Rosenthal’s best-selling debut novel, “Threads West: An American Saga.” Rosenthal will sign his book, which re-creates and celebrates the Rocky Mountain West of the mid 1850s, at 6 p.m. Jan. 28 at Otowi Station.

  • When the credits appeared on the movie screen for “Black Swan,” I turned to my sister with my best “shocked and amazed” face. She whispered to me, “I’m glad I never danced in Swan Lake.”
    Indeed. This classic ballet takes a complete psychotic turn in the movie. Yet, despite the horrible hallucinations and the terrible paranoia, “Black Swan” is fabulous. And I am not going nuts here.

  • The Santa Fe Opera and University of New Mexico School of Fine Arts have embarked on a joint production of a new children’s opera.  The work will be performed in late 2011 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque and the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe.  
    The American composer Stephen Paulus is writing the opera, based on the children’s story, “Shoes for Santo Niño,” by Peggy Pond Church.   Andrea Fellows Walters, the Opera Director of Education and Outreach, is the librettist.

  • BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — It seems only fitting that, at a Golden Globes ceremony where the host humorously insulted nearly every A-lister in the room, the big winner was a movie about a guy who riles up everyone on campus with his new and invasive website.
    And that’s exactly what Ricky Gervais, and “The Social Network,” did Sunday night.

  • Views expressed on programs shown on PAC8 do not necessarily reflect the views of the manager, staff, or board.
