'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' Gets Midnight Residency at New Beverly
If you haven't taken the time to discover and enjoy the hell out of Edgar Wright's fun and fantastic film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, then you're missing out on one of the most unique and satisfying films from 2010. For those who have come to love the film unconditionally or need to be enlightened by the majesty of the troubled romance between Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers, there's a solution, at least if you're in the Los Angeles area. The charming New Beverly Cinema has just announced that Scott Pilgrim vs. the World will have monthly midnight screenings beginning Friday, September 23rd. Hell yes!
The theater announced the new resident film via Twitter, but Movieline came through with details on the first screening. The first midnight show and every single screening following also encourages people to come in their best Scott Pilgrim cos-play gear, and I'm willing to bet some Rocky Horror Picture Show type reenactments might eventually become a tradition as well. I'd love to participate in a big fan-filled screening complete with audience members acting out the epic on-screen battles as best they can without a wire-fighting team behind them. The film joins Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs (since Quentin Tarantino is a part owner) which also have regular screenings at the theater which has made a great habit of holding special screenings of films from the past and present. Pretty great, right?
