    Get an extra-large bucket of popcorn and settle in for "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"

    SPIELBERG'S STARGAZE: "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" is filled with things we like: Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr, mashed potatoes, Devils Tower, Francois Truffaut and aliens. Oh, and the best five-note theme in the history of movies ever. Seen it on the big screen? It's playing for one night only. Wednesday, November 19, 7:30PM. $7. Culver Plaza Theatres, 9919 Washington Boulevard. 310-836-5516

    SECRETS FROM AN IRON CHEF: Celeb chef Cat Cora won on "Iron Chef" (the first woman to do so) and has brought Southern cooking fresh acclaim. She's appearing at The Paley Center to talk about the culinary arts and the media, and sign some books, too.  Can she tell us if we should baste the turkey next week, or do a rub? Or should we just scrap it all and order take-out? Help us, Cat. Wednesday, November 19, 7PM. $60 general. The Paley Center for Media, 465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills. 310-786-1091

    ANDY GARCIA & THE CINESON ALL-STARS: He's starred in movies like "Ocean's Thirteen," but Cuban music remains a love for the actor. Hear Mr. Garcia and his band at the Catalina Jazz Club (and come prepared to shake it). Wednesday, November 19. 9PM. $30. 6725 W Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood. 323-466-2210
