Series at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica

Sat, Nov 10, 2012 - Tue, Nov 13, 2012

After his breakout onto the festival circuit with the marvelous 1993 short “Cigarettes & Coffee,” it became eminently clear that Los Angeles-born writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson was one to watch. Undoubtedly influenced by masters such as Welles, Kubrick and Altman, he also demonstrates a distinct, risk-taking style unique to his own body of work. Join us for an in-person tribute to Paul Thomas Anderson, which includes HARD EIGHT, BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA, THERE WILL BE BLOOD, and PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, as well as an American Cinematheque members-only screening of his latest film, THE MASTER, in 70mm.

Mon, Nov 5, 2012 - Sun, Nov 25, 2012

Join us for a series of Alfred Hitchcock films, including a 70mm screening of VERTIGO, two screenings of the beautiful new 3-D digital presentation of DIAL M FOR MURDER, a double feature of REAR WINDOW and THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, and director Sacha Gervasi in person for a double feature of his new film HITCHCOCK, starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson, and the bloody-brilliant slasher classic PSYCHO. Plus, a special Norman Lloyd birthday celebration featuring eerie classic episodes from “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.”

In 3-D!

Fri, Nov 2, 2012 - Thu, Nov 8, 2012

Join us for a special engagement of A LIAR'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY - THE UNTRUE STORY OF MONTY PYTHON’S GRAHAM CHAPMAN! Before Monty Python alum Graham Chapman’s death in 1989, he recorded himself reading his book, A Liar's Autobiography. These recordings, both wildly hilarious and poignant, have ingeniously been used to provide his voice for this 3-D animated feature.

Thu, Oct 25, 2012 - Sun, Oct 28, 2012

For more than a quarter of a century, Tony Scott (1944-2012) was one of Hollywood's most bankable directors. When his debut feature THE HUNGER hit screens, its visual flair caught the eye of producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, who tapped Scott to helm TOP GUN, the first of a string of blockbusters from the trio including BEVERLY HILLS COP II and DAYS OF THUNDER. Join us at the Aero Theatre for a retrospective tribute to Tony Scott, which also includes MAN ON FIRE, TRUE ROMANCE and CRIMSON TIDE.
