Calling all movie nerds

Tonight, Adult Education, a monthly lecture series in Brooklyn, returns to Union Hall, this time focusing on the stage and screen.

The line-up includes:

-Park Slope comedian and writer Patrick Borelli walking you through the oddest headshots and acting resumes from his recent book, "Holy Headshot!: A Celebration of America's Undiscovered Talent"

-Actor and comic Andrea Rosen on conquering the commercial audition

-Daily Show writer Elliott Kalan on identifying the great stout men of Hollywood

-Playright and screenwriter Jason Grote on how to move from writing largely irrelevant plays to producing more or less equally irrelevant radio plays

It happens tonight at 8 p.m. at Union Hall (702 Union St.), with a $5 cover.

For other nerdery, Gowanus is ripe with adult education-like entertainment, from the monthly Secret Science Club at the Bell House to almost everything at Observatory.

Now enter Brooklyn Brainery, a four-week semester on anything from meat to optics. Classes start January 18, so if one of your New Year's resolutions was improving your mind, you're welcome.
