This month we’re pleased to present three recent BBC Worldwide productions - one fiction film and two documentaries, none of them currently available in the U.S. - created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I.
If the heroes of Luc Besson’s thrillers seem driven, they pale next to the director, who is one of the most phenomenally successful and influential French filmmakers of the last three decades. Join us for a retrospective including THE PROFESSIONAL and THE FIFTH ELEMENT as well as a Members-only advance screening of his new film LUCY, starring Scarlett Johansson.
Etheria Film Night showcases the best and most innovative new horror, science fiction, fantasy, action and thriller films directed by women. The one-day-only program kicks off with a 4PM screening of Axelle Carolyn's horror/Gothic romance feature SOULMATE and a discussion with the director.
At 7:30 PM a program of short films will screen, followed by a discussion with directors Rebecca Thomson, Sarah Doyle, Gigi Saul Guerrero and Rose McGowan.
All ticket holders can attend a cocktail reception and red carpet event in the courtyard of the Egyptian Theatre at 6PM! For more details about Etheria see www.etheriafilmnight.com

A dark and intense visionary, artist Nick Cave has spun tales of damnation and desire across several media in a 30-plus year career. Leading up to a live performance at the Egyptian Theatre, join us for a series of films he contributed to, including THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD, THE PROPOSITION, and the new documentary 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH.
