It's Happening Tonight!

WIZARDS GONE WILD—Lev Grossman's bestseller The Magicians takes a familiar premise and dials the angst to 11. The protagonist of The Magicians finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a "college of magic," where coming-of-age hijinks unfold against a fantastical background—think Hogwarts with sex, booze, and cocaine.

GIANT SQUID!—OMSI's IMAX Film Festival is in full swing, and today boasts one of the coolest-sounding flicks they have: Sea Monsters, a film that brings to life ancient oceans that "teemed with saber-toothed fish, ancient sharks, and giant squid"! Now picture those things on a five-story-tall IMAX dome theater. Yeah. I don't even need to say anything else. EH
OMSI, 1945 SE Water, noon, $6.50-8.50, Sea Monsters through June 20

I recommend that Grossman book to anyone going through Harry Potter withdrawal. (It's a thing! [Hopefully, that is the most depressing thing I will say all day. But it's only noon, so....]) More nerd-picks at My, What a Busy Week!
