Dick Miller, Roger Corman, Ernest Dickerson, Rick Baker In Person! 
Dick Miller Tribute The name may not ring a bell, but the face surely will – Dick Miller is one of Hollywood’s favorite character actors. One of the busiest members of Roger Corman’s stock company, Joe Dante has made it a point to use the actor in nearly all of his films. Corman and Dante are just a few of the screen luminaries who sing the actor’s praises. Roger Corman, special effects guru Rick Baker, director Ernest Dickerson and Dick Miller himself, will appear in person after GREMLINS I & II, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, A BUCKET OF BLOOD and WAR OF THE SATELLITES.
Christopher Nolan In Person!

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.

Tours of the Historic Egyptian Theatre Our behind-the-scenes tours of the historic Egyptian Theatre are now only one day per month. Generally they will be on Saturdays.

Would You Like it if We Turned the Lights on While the Movie is Running?When you text and e-mail during a film you are “turning the lights on” in the theatre and bothering your fellow film lovers. We have had a number of complaints lately that the light from phone screens and other device screens have been disturbing the movie viewing experience in our theaters. Don’t ruin it for everyone. If you have something urgent to text or e-mail, go out in the lobby. We don’t want to create more of a disturbance by asking you to leave in the middle of a show.

SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON) and business (IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE). Join us for a retrospective saluting the American director.

Jean-Luc Godard’s Latest Film in 3D
Exclusive Los Angeles Engagement! Tickets On Sale Now!
At last, Jean-Luc Godard’s highly anticipated Cannes Film Festival Jury prize winner hits the big screen! The protean French director’s latest is a vibrant visual essay as well as a narrative – a married woman’s relationship with a single man (and Godard’s dog, Roxy) is just the jumping-off point. Both beautiful and mischievous, this Godard masterpiece is bold in its disregard for the conventions of 3-D filmmaking, challenging the audience to discover hidden layers of imagery, and making this a unique film that can only be savored in a theater. “A thrilling cinematic experience.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times. “An adrenaline shot to the brain.” – Scott Foundas, Variety. “Packed with dazzling images, the film makes 3-D feel like something brand-new to the medium.” – Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly. In French with English subtitles.
