Wednesday, February 3 - 7:30 PM

Sneak Preview! STUCK!, 2010, Dikenga Films, 95 min. Director Steve Balderson's homage to film noir women-in-prison films faithfully reproduces the genre with a modern, tongue-in-cheek twist, with all the hallmarks of a classic prison movie: a wrongly accused heroine, hard-boiled dames, diabolical alliances, forbidden love, cat-fighting cuties, a sadistic warden, and corrupt prison guards. Daisy is an innocent young woman framed for killing her mother. Condemned by the press and the public, Daisy is found guilty of murder and sentenced to death by hanging. This jazzy, finger-snapping, broads-behind-bars film is a throwback to another era, with terse Tennessee Williams-style verbal sparring, non-stop action and enough bad-girl jailhouse hi-jinks to make the audience lose the distinction between good and evil. Discussion following with Karen Black, Mink Stole, Susan Traylor, Jane Wiedlin, Pleasant Gehman, Stacy Cunningham and director Steve Balderson.

Monday, February 8 - 6:00 PM SOLD OUT

Quentin Tarantino In-Person! Double Feature! PULP FICTION, 1994, Miramax, 153 min. Director Quentin Tarantino's dazzling, nitro-fueled homage to 1930’s crime fiction, Elvis Presley flicks, Los Angeles diners, Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Melville is arguably the most audacious and exciting American film of the 1990’s. The movie’s brilliant, against-type casting includes John Travolta (in a career-reviving performance), Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Eric Stolz, Maria de Medeiros, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Christopher Walken and Ving Rhames. Winner of LAFCA Awards for Best Picture, Actor (John Travolta) and Screenplay (Tarantino and Roger Avary).

INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, 2009, The Weinstein Company/Universal Pictures, 153 min. Nominated for 8 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. Tarantino's most recent cinematic achievement blends the director's trademark fetishism of film history with an emphatically violent, gung-ho pop culture assault against the 20th century's greatest villains: the Nazis. When a beautiful Jewish film projectionist recognizes the SS general (a magnetic Christopher Waltz) who riddled her family with bullets several years earlier, she brews a plan that involves revenge and celluloid. Meanwhile, a guerilla clan of Jewish-American soldiers and their twangy lieutenant (Brad Pitt) have plans of their own for the venomous Nazis. Nominated for 4 Golden Globes, including Best Motion Picture, Director, Screenplay, and a win for Waltz for Best Supporting Actor. Discussion following  with director Quentin Tarantino, moderated by Todd McCarthy.

Tuesday, February 9 - 7:30 PM

Double Feature: Cannes Film Festival Version! KILL BILL: Vol. 1, 2003, Miramax, 111 min. Dir. Quentin Tarantino. With Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica Fox, Darryl Hannah, Michael Parks, Sonny Chiba. Kill Bill is both an homage and a reimagining of the genre films that Quentin Taratino has seen and loved: spaghetti westerns, Chinese martial arts films, Japanese samurai movies and anime. The film is conceived in chapters, each with the characteristic look and pulse of a specific genre and then interwoven with references from pop culture. It is the tale of Beatrix Kiddo (a perfectly cast Uma Thurman) and her quest for bloody justice after being left for dead on her wedding day. Following a brief intermisson, Vol. 2 will be shown.

Cannes Film Festival Version! KILL BILL: Vol. 2, 2004, Miramax, 136 min. The second and final installment in Tarantino's pulsating KILL BILL epic, Vol. 2 finds Beatrix Kiddo (Uma Thurman at her most raw and empowering) waking from a lengthy coma and having the devastating realization that the baby she was carrying has died. This loss only serves as more fuel to her vengeful fire, and The Bride begins hunting down the final three people on her to-kill list: Budd (Bill's brother), Elle Driver (a one-eyed doozy), and Bill himself. Hyperbolically innovative death sequences, punchy color and a first-rate score by Wu-Tang Clan's The RZA make this one of the best action films of the new millennium - and also so much more than an action film. Also starring David Carradine, Michael Madsen, and Daryl Hannah.

lemora.jpg (24182 bytes)

Wednesday, February 10 - 7:30 PM

Double Feature: LEMORA: A CHILD’S TALE OF THE SUPERNATURAL, 1973, 85 min. Dir. Richard Blackburn. This adult fairy tale, long considered lost, is a masterpiece of mood and atmosphere. Inspired in part by Arthur Machen's "The White People," Lovecraft's "Shadow over Innsmouth" and J. Sheridan Le Fanu's "Carmilla," LEMORA is a Southern Gothic fever dream, half exploitation, half art film. Thirteen-year-old "singing angel" Lila Lee (Cheryl "Rainbeaux" Smith, one-time drummer for The Runaways) embarks on a dark erotic odyssey in which she is bathed, seduced and terrorized by the vampire Lemora (Lesley Gilb). A live-action CORALINE, 40 years ahead of its time. Amazingly, it is Richard Blackburn's only feature film as director.

BLOOD AND ROSES, 1960, Paramount, 74 min. Roger Vadim (BARBARELLA) directed this sumptuous and contemporary adaptation of LeFanu's vampire classic novella, "Carmilla." Carmilla (Annette Vadim) suffers pangs of jealousy when her beloved cousin Leopoldo (Mel Ferrer) becomes engaged to the ravishing Georgia (Elsa Martinelli). Carmilla begins to believe she is possessed by her ancient, undead ancestor, the vampire Millarca, and begins a blood thirsty reign of terror on the grounds of Leopoldo's estate. A seldom-screened classic. Discussion between films with director Richard Blackburn.

Muscle-Beach-Party.jpg (30447 bytes)

Thursday, February 11 - 7:30 PM

Double Feature: MUSCLE BEACH PARTY, 1964, MGM Repertory, 94 min. Dir. William Asher. Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello hit Malibu Beach in the second of AIP's beach party flicks: While Don Rickles and his team of bodybuilders try to take over the gang's surf spot, Annette has to compete with an Italian countess who has eyes for Frankie. Luckily, Buddy Hackett is on hand to provide sage wisdom for all. An added bonus: musical numbers with Dick Dale and a 13-year old Stevie Wonder! Also starring Donna Loren and Morey Amsterdam.

View trailer

BEACH BLANKET BINGO, 1965, MGM Repertory, 98 min. Dir. William Asher. The fifth and best of the Frankie-Annette beach movies reunites them with Don Rickles, Donna Loren, Jody McCrea and director William Asher, and brings in comic legend Buster Keaton for a cameo. This time McCrea falls for a mermaid, Frankie learns to skydive and attracts the attention of a stuntgirl, and Annette sings in her two-piece bathing suit. A great supporting cast (Paul Lynde, Linda Evans) and a score by Les Baxter add to the fun. Live musical performance and discussion in between films with actress Donna Loren.

Critic's Buzz Special Screenings:

THE BEACHES OF AGNES [Spielberg Theatre]

THE BEACHES OF AGNÈS (LES PLAGES D’ AGNÈS), 2008, 110 min. "If you opened people up, you would find landscapes," Varda says in the opening voiceover of her new film. "If you opened me up, you would find beaches." Varda’s latest work is an autobiographical essay that takes a nostalgic yet penetrating look back at her life and films. Using photographs, recreations and scenes from her films, Varda illustrates the various stages of her life, from her marriage to Jacques Demy and his death in 1990 to her childhood memories of Sète, the fishing village that would become the subject of her first film. Woven through these reminiscences are lonely, dreamlike sequences shot on the beaches that have influenced and inspired her. "It’s a remarkable history, rich in comedy and occasionally heartbreaking, filled with wise reflections and strange digressions about the wonders of life. It’s a life she has come close to perfecting, I think, mostly by keeping her mind as blissfully and enduringly open as her round eyes." - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

IN THE LOOP, 2008, IFC Films, 106 min. Dir. Armando Iannucci. With Anna Chlumsky (Liza), Chris Addison (Toby), David Rasche (Linton), Gina McKee (Judy), James Gandolfini (General Miller), Mimi Kennedy (Karen), Olivia Poulet (Suzy), Peter Capaldi (Malcolm Tucker), Steve Coogan (Paul Michaelson), Tom Hollander (Simon Foster) and Zach Woods (Chad).

"See if this sounds familiar: A U.S. president is pushing for a war in the Middle East, going for a U.N. resolution though there's no reliable intelligence to back him up. And the Brits are staying carefully neutral, to give their prime minister room to maneuver.

Been there, seen that, you say? Not like this, you haven't. In the blistering British political satire In the Loop, bureaucratic bungling in the run-up to war is played for scabrous laughs, not a few of which will be pained laughs of recognition." - Bob Mondello, All Things Considered (In the Loop: Wartime Fever As Screwball Tragedy)

"...a sharply written, fast-talking, almost dementedly articulate satire on modern statecraft..." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times (more)

Oscar Buzz Special Screenings: Limited Engagement

THE HURT LOCKER [Spielberg Theatre] Buy Tickets

THE HURT LOCKER, 2009, Summit Entertainment, 131 min. Acclaimed director Kathryn Bigelow brings together realistic action and intimate human drama in a landmark film starring Jeremy Renner (THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD), Anthony Mackie (WE ARE MARSHALL), Brian Geraghty (JARHEAD), and co-starring Ralph Fiennes, David Morse, Evangeline Lilly ("Lost") and Guy Pearce. In the summer of 2004, Sergeant Sanborn (Mackie) and Specialist Eldridge (Geraghty) are part of a small counterforce trained to handle homemade bombs, or Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The job, a high-pressure, high-stakes assignment that soldiers volunteer for, requires a calm intelligence that leaves no room for mistakes. When Staff Sergeant James (Renner) cheerfully takes over the team, Sanborn and Eldridge are shocked by what seems like his reckless disregard for military protocol and basic safety measures. Is James really a swaggering cowboy who lives for peak experiences and the moments when the margin of error is zero - or is he a consummate professional who has honed his craft to high-wire precision? The men have only 38 days left in their tour, but with each new mission comes another deadly encounter. As James blurs the line between bravery and bravado, it seems only a matter of time before disaster strikes. A gripping portrayal of real-life sacrifice and heroism, and a probing study of the soul-numbing rigors and potent allure of the modern battlefield. Based on the first-hand observations of journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal, who was embedded with a special bomb unit in Iraq -- a squad whose members spoke of explosions as putting you in "the hurt locker." Nominated for 9 Academy Awards, including Best Directing and Motion Picture of the Year.

"It's both the film about the war in Iraq that we've been waiting for and the kind of unqualified triumph that's been long expected from director Kathryn Bigelow."- Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

"…a first-class piece of visceral action moviemaking." -Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly

COCKTAIL_flapper_2.jpg (22847 bytes)

Sunday, February 21 – 2:00 PM

Co-presented with the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles: Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: "The Bob" The turbulent years from the mid-1910s until the stock market crashed in 1929 provided the ideal climate for political and social change - and any hairstyle that could become the topic of editorials, sermons, cartoons, and literature during that time bears investigation. What could a world class tennis player, a murderous housewife, a female evangelist, and a Hollywood star possibly have in common? Bobbed hair! In addition to reflecting upon the broader impact of the bob, we'll examine the lives of both famous and infamous women who sported this provocative cropped hairdo. Some of these women behaved well and others badly, but at least they all looked chic! Lecturer Joan Renner is a social historian and writer. She volunteers for the Los Angeles Police Historical Society, Los Angeles Art Deco Society, Los Angeles Conservancy, and is a board member for the non-profit organization Photo Friends as well as tour guide for Esotouric tours.

IT, 1927, Kino, 72 min. Dir. Clarence G. Badger. The film that launched a thousand bobbed hairdos, IT stars the remarkably sassy Clara Bow as Betty Lou, a department store worker who has "It" (a.k.a. sex appeal). What does an It Girl do when the man of her dreams doesn't know she exists? She dates his best friend! This attention-getting technique works swimmingly, but complications arise when Betty Lou is mistakenly written up in the daily newspaper as an unwed mother. A flirty, fashionable romp about class politics. Live accompaniment on the piano by Robert Israel.
