Alan Arkin

The man, the myth, the legend.

Don’t forget, Alan Arkin is coming to Albuquerque to read from his memoir. That’s tonight, March 1.

Arkin snorted drugs, taught little girls how to dance sexy and espoused the virtues of promiscuity in Little Miss Sunshine.

He was also gangster Ernie Lazarro in The Jerky Boys (worth seeing if only for Tom Jones singing “Are You Gonna Go My Way” by Lenny Kravitz, with a full brass section).

He’s been a part of your life.

Now he can be the guy reading to you from his memoir, An Improvised Life, on at the KiMo Theatre (423 Central NW) at 7 p.m.

The event is free, but if you buy a copy of the book from Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW), not only will you be helping out a local merchant, but you get your seat half an hour early.
