Do you delight in your life of bread-free misery? Then skip this entry. For the rest of you, there is an entire festival this weekend dedicated the springy, toothsome, magical sustenance that is freshly baked bread. Grand Central Market is hosting the two-day pop-up, which features loaves from all stars like Challah HubEnsaymada Project, Los Angeles Bread BakersRed BreadThe SpeakEasy Bakery and The Underground Bakery. They say there are no dumb questions, but if you’re wondering whether there will be a selection of nut butters and jams at this bread festival, then “they” are wrong. There is even a workshop called Feel the Churn Butter Aerobics, which boasts very high volumes of churning butter then eating it and very low volumes of aerobic exercise. This is what dreams are made of. More information (June 3 and 4, Grand Central Market)

L.A. Confidential at the Orpheum Theatre

For 40 years the Los Angeles Conservancy has shown classic movies in some of DTLA’s most historic movie palaces as part of its Last Remaining Seats series (ticket prices are a tad steep at $22, but proceeds go toward preserving architecture across the city, which is a win). ArcLight has its charm, but you can’t beat the atmosphere at the Orpheum for a screening of L.A. Confidential, which kicks the series off. More information (June 3, Orpheum Theatre)

KCRW Summer Nights

The Santa Monica College radio station with a global following brings its outdoor music series back to Pasadena. Head to One Colorado on Saturday for performances from Chico Mann and Captain Planet. More information (June 3, One Colorado)

We Angelenos aren’t hurting for kickass art and music festivals, but it’s always nice to see a new face in the crowd. i3 Arts Fest launches its inaugural event this weekend, and it’s billing itself as the only live-art-slash-music-fest in town. There will be more than 30 art installations and live performances from the likes of Mechan9, One-Eyed Monster, The Gaslamp Killer, and Odd Future’s Mike G over the course of two days. Le bonus: it’s free. More information  (June 2 and 3, various DTLA locations)

Urban Air Market

The outdoor market that zeroes in on sustainable design is back in L.A. for year two. Los Feliz (on Hillhurst at Franklin) will be dominated by more than 100 designers hawking apparel, jewelry, art, home decor, and more; stop by to scope goods from Rx Candles, Tortoise Denim, Kaleidoscope Kollective, Solei Yoga, Twine, ARTNWORDZ, and others.
