Diablo Cody's New Beverly Film Fest - Mondo Diablo
In about a month I'll finally be living in Los Angeles, enjoying such lavish luxuries as film festivals at the New Beverly Cinema theater in Hollywood. We've mentioned two awesome fests before, one them called The Wright Stuff with Edgar Wright, the other one featuring Eli Roth himself titled The Greats of Roth. Continuing the tradition, the New Beverly is in the midst of launching a new film festival coordinated by Oscar winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. The fest officially started yesterday night with Thank You for Smoking and Stripes and will continue on all the way through July 24th. As always, guest appearances are very likely and Cody will be on hand to introduce most of the movies every night. If you live in LA, this is a fest you don't want to miss - she has chosen a rather appealing collection of eclectic classics.
The schedule below comes from the New Beverly Cinema's official MySpace page (via Cinematical), so head over there for more information. First show starts at 7:30PM every night. Here's the full line-up:
The reason why I love these fests is because it's a chance to relive some great classics and to also explore some new territory. I of course haven't seen everything on this schedule and would love to be able to see a lot of these for the first time in an awesome theatrical environment like at the New Beverly Cinema. Once I'm out in LA, you'll probably find me frequenting the New Beverly's fests like this nearly every night. And if you're already out there in Hollywood - I hope you catch a few of these showings. Enjoy!
