“The Woodmans” At Film Forum

Critically lauded documentary "The Woodmans" ends its run at Film Forum tonight. Director C. Scott Willis' plaintive take on the short life of photographer Francesca Woodman expands into a meditation on the thrill and burden of preternatural artistic talent. Broader themes of family competition (Francesca's parents continue to make art) and tragedy (Francesca killed herself at 22) complete the searing portrait. $13 tickets here. 8:10 p.m., 10:00 p.m.

A no-brainer combination of Jane Austen and nipple tassels hits Parkside Lounge during "Book Club Burlesque." Actually, the literary inspiration comes from "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," a gory, undead retelling of Austen's timeless novel. Performance art, installations and short films further deviate from the page. $7 plus one-drink minimum. 8:30 p.m.

There is such a thing as a free lunch at the Tenement Museum, even if you'll have to wait 'til around dinner to enjoy it. Tenement Talks presents "Free Lunch," a chat with the folks from Brooklyn Brewery about the sadly bygone tradition of bars providing gratis foodstuffs with a beer order. Suds and grub will complement a tour of the Lower East Side museum. $25 Tickets here. 6:30 p.m.

Going out can be a gamble, so why leave it up to chance? Stack the deck each day by peeping Play's Dance Card.
