Series at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica

Mon, Jan 5, 2015 - Sat, Jan 10, 2015

Discover the best of 2014's foreign-language cinema this week with screenings of the five films nominated for Best Foreign Language Film Golden Globe at the Aero Theatre. Then meet the filmmakers at a free panel discussion at the Egyptian Theatre!


Wed, Dec 17, 2014 - Sun, Dec 28, 2014

This year’s holiday series gets a decidedly nontraditional start with Beyond Fest copresenting the notorious Christmas horror films SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT and CHRISTMAS EVIL - but there's also plenty of classic fare, including 3 screenings of IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE! Cinematheque favorites ELF and a pre-New-Years-Eve screening of THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE are also included.


Terry Jones In Person!

Sat, Dec 13, 2014 - Sun, Dec 14, 2014

Comedy fans may know him best for TV appearances as lower-class British housewives, Spanish Inquisitors or naked organists. But Terry Jones’ work behind the camera is just as memorable as his Monty Python characters. He joins us in person for screenings of MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE, LIFE OF BRIAN and ERIK THE VIKING.


Sun, Dec 7, 2014 - Sat, Jan 3, 2015

Frank Capra's 1934 screwball classic IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT was the first to sweep the top Oscar categories, and though Capra never abandoned comedy - he helmed such hilarious features as YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU and ARSENIC AND OLD LACE - he increasingly used his cachet to explore more serious themes, including politics (MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON) and business (IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE). Join us for a retrospective saluting the American director.


Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski In Person!

Wed, Dec 3, 2014 - Fri, Dec 5, 2014

The fringes of American popular culture have provided screenwriting partners Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski with some of their most fascinating subjects, and that’s also the case with their latest film, BIG EYES. Join us for an advance screening for Members, as well as a retrospective of their earlier films ED WOOD, AUTO FOCUS, THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT and MAN ON THE MOON.


Norman Lloyd In Person!

Fri, Nov 21, 2014 - Sun, Nov 23, 2014

Centennial celebrations are nothing new at the Cinematheque - but it's a rare occasion when we can salute the honoree in person! We are thrilled to welcome Norman Lloyd to the Aero Theatre with a double feature of SABOTEUR and A WALK IN THE SUN. The series will also include a screening of LIMELIGHT.
