Millions of people have seen the inside of Peekaboo Playland, though they probably don't know it. The indoor playground has garnered ample media attention, including a feature on The Doctors. It was even used to shoot an episode of NBC's The Office, during which new parents Jim and Pam seek out the perfect daycare center for their child. Spoiler alert: Peekaboo Playland fits the bill. Luckily, the creative space appeals to more than just sitcom characters. Located within an art deco building, the 3,300-square-foot facility screams imagination like an improv troupe that's trying way too hard. European artist Marlene Wittfeld created custom paintings for the indoor playground, and her images of beaches, forests, and outer space make the walls seem like a giant storybook. Nature sounds and carefully selected music set the tone as kids slide down from a large "stork's nest," jump in a bounce castle, or play pretend in the dress-up nook. The Baby Balcony caters to kids ages 2 and younger, while long work tables and open spaces set the stage for art and fitness classes. Parents find ample activities as well. They can browse The Peekasso Gallery—which features local artwork—sip complementary coffee while surfing on free WiFi, or order food from one of the nearby restaurants.

The Bel-Air Film Festival shines a bright light on film reels from around the world, offering a diverse schedule of independent shorts, documentaries, and feature-length films. The fest kicks off with My Father's Will, a U.S. feature that centers around a wealthy businessman who, in accordance with his father's last wishes, must distance himself from his affluent identity and hefty bank account for one month of self-discovery, reflection, and, most likely, frozen TV dinners. Starting Thursday, things heat up with four to five showings a day, including The Italian Key from Finland and Trophy Kids from American director Josh Sugarman. Friday and Saturday's festivities conclude with complimentary wine-tasting events before after parties and competitive Kurosawa name-droppings take center stage. Monday wraps up the whole festival with a screening of Face to Face, a film many consider to be the Australian version of 12 Angry Men.
