First a Beloved Motion Picture, Now a Dance Play!

Edward Scissorhands New York premiere. BAM, 30 Lafayette Ave., nr. Ashland Pl., Fort Greene, Brooklyn, 6 p.m. After-party at 7 World Trade Center, nr. Vesey St. Expected guests include Sam Mendes, Kate Winslet, Matthew Barney, Darren Aronofsky, Alan Cumming, and others. And while waiting in traffic to get back to Manhattan for the after-party, the cognoscenti shall know the pain of every nightlife-loving Carroll Gardens or Park Slope resident whose friends refuse to leave Manhattan. Sometimes the F train's faster, guys!

Planet Earth screening. American Museum of Natural History, Central Park W. at 79th St., 6:30 p.m. Planet Earth is a super high-def remote-location endangered-species nature-film spectacular. We don't endorse illegal behavior here at Daily Intel, but … after the movie there's a dessert reception, so if you're ever going to try and pull a VIP screening-crash, today's the day.
