Director Henry Jaglom joins us for the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, a backstage drama shot at Santa Monica’s Edgemar Theater and starring Tanna Frederick and James Denton. Discussion after the film with director Henry Jaglom. Reception following for all ticket buyers.
Our tribute to George Kennedy continues with two films he made with Clint Eastwood: an offbeat heist film in which the two are feuding ex-partners, and a thriller set in the world of professional mountain climbing.
Our salute to the late George Kennedy continues with the star-studded WWII film THE DIRTY DOZEN, and ’70s disaster classic EARTHQUAKE, in which Kennedy tries to help Charlton Heston survive “the big one.”
Our tribute to George Kennedy concludes with the three NAKED GUN films, in which the actor played ever-reliable policeman Ed Hocken to Leslie Nielsen’s ever-incompetent Frank Drebin as they try to foil various criminal plots threatening Los Angeles. All ticket buyers will be eligible to win a copy of La-La Land Records' THE NAKED GUN TRILOGY 3-CD box set featuring the original scores to all three films.
With this double feature, we pay tribute to Glenn Ford on what would have been the actor's 100th birthday. In Fritz Lang's noir classic THE BIG HEAT, he's a cop out to bust psychotic racketeer Lee Marvin. In GILDA, Ford plays the former flame of torch-singing Rita Hayworth; the dark drama elevated both to stardom.
This screening has been rescheduled from April 14. Subtitled “Between Iraq and a hard place,” this documentary is a scathing indictment of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and subsequent years of conflict that cost thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars. Discussion following with director Robert Taicher. Free to American Cinematheque Members.
