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.

Exclusive Los Angeles Engagement! 
Jean-Luc Godard’s Latest Film in 3D! 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.Updates about special guest introductions will appear on our website. Actress Héloise Godetwill appear in person at a screening to be announced. more>
