Happy Inauguration Day! Today you can pay tribute to the late Martin Luther King, Jr. without opening your wallet. AFI Silver Theatre is hosting a free screening of King: A Filmed Record...Montgomery to Memphis at 2 p.m. The 1970 documentary presents footage of the civil rights leader's life and work, taking viewers on a visual journey from the Montgomery bus boycott, to the "I Have a Dream" speech, to the Lorraine Motel balcony where he was fatally shot.

Jan. 22-Mar. 3: Henry V

Set during the Hundred Years' War, the historical drama chronicles the efforts of an ambitious young ruler as he attempts to conquer France. The play opens tomorrow night with a pay-what-you-can performance and runs through March 3.
