Featured review from Philip M.

This was a fun and very unusual evening hosted by animation expert extraordinaire Jerry Beck. The first half of the show was adult oriented cartoons from the silent era to the present. At intermission everyone filed out to a patio behind the cinema (who knew?) and had cake and free beer! For the 2nd half the director showed up for a screening of perhaps the last existing print of "Down and Dirty Duck", aka "Cheap". This is really esoteric stuff and it was a pleasure to get to see it. The theater is filled with assorted types of chairs and sofas, along with some theater seats, and is comfortable and relaxed.

March 10, 2014 at 7:30pm: Just Like Being There -- Filmmaker Scout Shannon in Person Plus a Gallery Show
The art of the gig poster, which started with flair in the psychedelic late-‘60s, has truly blossomed with immense creativity in our mellifluous era of indie rock; Scout Shannon’s in-depth documentary Just Like Being There is the filmic love letter on the subject, surveying all the major artists nationwide in the artistic pursuit of elevating the Rock Show into even more blissful spheres, along with providing the real nitty-gritty on the craft of screen printing. Featuring live performances by Spoon, Nada Surf, Archers of Loaf, The Thermals and Tokyo Police Club. After the film, join us on the back patio for a gallery show compiling the best of local L.A. poster artists!
March 10-12, 2014: Leo Carax's Mauvais Sang
1980s French cinema never achieved a sweeter, higher giddiness than Mauvais Sang. Less concerned with the machinations of his gangster film plot than bouncing the audience along an unending, uncoiling chain of blissful genre “moments”, director Leo Carax glides us along the near-future story of a teenage hoodlum tasked with stealing the vaccine for an AIDS-like romantic malady, and afflicted with a deadly attraction to his employer’s young girlfriend. The cast is super-strong (Denis Lavant, Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy, Michel Piccoli), and Carax’s visual vocabulary is even stronger, with an infectious zeal for the filmmaking process itself pouring forth from every single perfectly-framed shot.
