This is mainly for those who live in the Los Angeles area, otherwise it'll be hard to attend. Oscar nominated director Jason Reitman is programming a week of films (six in total) at the New Beverly Cinema in Hollywood. Other filmmakers like Edgar Wright, Eli Roth, and Rian Johnson have all programmed line-ups at the New Beverly and Reitman's selections look great. I just received an email earlier today reminding me that "this will be a great opportunity to see these films projected in 35mm on the big screen. These are six films that have inspired me to no end. If you haven't see one or more, I highly recommend you join me."
Friday, Feb 19th:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) & Election (1999)
Sunday, Feb 21st:
Shampoo (1975) & Boogie Nights (1997)
Wednesday, Feb 24th:
Breaking Away (1979) & Bottle Rocket (1996)
I wish this would last a lot longer than just three nights, but that's all we're going to get for this series. The New Beverly Cinema is located on Beverly Blvd near the corner of La Brea in Los Angeles, CA. The first film usually starts at 7:30PM (Shampoo starts at 6:35PM) with the double feature immediately following the first film and a short break. It only costs $7 to get in to see both films. You can find more information, location details, and a complete calendar at the official New Beverly website: newbevcinema.com. Hope to see a few of you there, I'm planning on hitting up all three of these nights (I think). "Hope to see you at the movies!"
