If you missed the screening of “Casablanca” at The Louisville Palace on Friday, or if you’re still craving more classic film-noir, you can’t do much better than “The Maltese Falcon.” The movie is a cornerstone of the genre, with a striking visual style and the roles of hardboiled detective and femme fatale played perfectly by Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor, respectively. The screening is part of The Louisville Palace’s Summer Movie Series, which is showing classic Warner Brothers’ movies throughout July.

The Drepung Gomang Center for Engaging Compassion brings this opportunity for you to learn more about the ongoing human rights struggle, the food, music and culture, as well as the impact Tibet has on Louisville. There will be Tibetan music, food and a market, as well as guest speakers, including filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen, flutist Nawang Khechog, glaciologist Dr. Keith Mountain and Tenzin Namgyal of the Tri-State Tibetan Association. —Aaron Yarmuth
