New this year, every third Thursday of the month, the Pearl Hotel (1410 Rosecrans St., Point Loma) puts on a documentary movie night. For the event's second installment, at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, check out Maya Lin: A Strong, Clear Vision. The 1994 film profiles Lin, whose design was selected in 1981 to become the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. It wasn't her youth (she was only 21 at the time), but the fact that she's Chinese-American that drew scrutiny (Ross Perot referred to her as an "egg roll"). But Lin perservered and went on to create equally elegant and compelling structures. The evening is co-hosted by the always-awesome San Diego Architectural Foundation. Make a $10 donation to the SDAF at the door and you'll get a drink ticket. Check out The Pearl's events page.
