What You're Doing Tonight: November 7

"TRAINSPOTTING" MAN: Applaud the visionary behind one of the most haunting films of the last 20 years as The Skirball Center and AFI pay tribute to Danny Boyle at ArcLight Hollywood. The helmer will chat about "Slumdog Millionaire," his latest movie (the film screens after the conversation). We're also keen to delve into "28 Days Later," especially those epic empty street scenes. We're fond of the zombies, too. 7PM, $25. Arclight, 6360 W. Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood. 323-464-1478

HE'S AS SWEET AS TUPELO HONEY: Though there probably isn't a person around who can't sing some portion of "Moondance" (or at least hum a significant part of it), the great Van Morrison still feels like a balladeer who is constantly being discovered anew. We're guessing that's okay with him, too. 7PM, $75-$350. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 North Highland Avenue, Hollywood

WATCH ME TRIPLE LUTZ: It's romantic, it's brisk, it's ice skating, it's November? Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica greets the chilliest season of the year a tad early with the opening of its ice rink and festive Winterlit holiday display. The rink stays open way past dark, making it the perfect date-night outing. Follow your icy twirls with a walk on the beach (maybe wear a bikini under that parka). 10AM-10PM, $10 (includes skate rental). Third and Broadway, Santa Monica
