    "March of the Penguins" won an Oscar; see it, for free, at the Academy's Vine theatre on Monday, April 5.

    No, it isn't Arctic snow we're experiencing in Los Angeles, so we all need to stop acting like it is.

    It is surprising, yes, to get a wintry storm in the bud-blooming days of April. But it isn't severe frost in the least. Take "March of the Penguins," the Oscar-winning documentary from about a half decade back. Now there was some serious snow action. Are you thinking of all those beautiful birds bunched together against the polar gales of Antarctica?

    Makes this rain seem almost tropical in comparison.

    The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciencesis screening the French documentary for free on Monday, April 5 at the theatre on Vine. It's part of the Oscar Docs program, which is going on every Monday night through May 3.

    "A Note of Triumph: The Golden Age of Norman Corwin" screens with "Penguins." It's about a radio play from back in the day. "Penguins" is about the annual journey of waddling, flightless birds to their breeding grounds. Now that is a diverse night of programming. Bravo, Academy.
