All night long 

FILM

Go All Night to Paris at Louvre Atlanta, a 20-hour eating, art-making and film-going marathon at the High Museum, showcases Hollywood's take on Parisian allure with three cinematic classics. The IN LOVE IN PARIS ALL-NIGHT MOVIE MARATHON begins NOV. 24 with Vincente Minnelli's 1958 musical Gigi. Adapted from French novelist Colette's spin on the "Pygmalion" legend, the film stars Leslie Caron as a courtesan-in-training, and Maurice Chevalier, who croons the lascivious "Thank Heaven for Little Girls." The most Gallic of non-Gallic actresses, Audrey Hepburn, follows as a Paris-based fashion model in Funny Girl, from which the Gap sampled its recent ad campaign. And the best of the bunch, Greta Garbo, is a stern Russian seduced by Paris' charms in Ernst Lubitsch's sparkling 1939 romantic comedy, Ninotchka. I don't know if Audrey would approve, but the museum gift shop is offering a 10 percent discount to people in their PJs. Free-$15. Gigi: Nov. 24, 6-8 p.m.; Nov. 25, 3-5 a.m. Funny Face: Nov. 24, 8-9:45 p.m. Ninotchka: Nov. 25, 1-3 a.m. Hill Auditorium. 1280 Peachtree St. 404-733-4444. www.high.org.
