Your Weekly Movie To-Do List 

A bomb, a zombie and beer

Thursday, Jul 14 2011
Thurs., July 14

1991 box office bomb Hudson Hawk gets a second chance tonight at 7:30 at the Aero's 20th-anniversary screening. Bruce Willis plays a criminal mastermind blackmailed out of retirement to help industrialists take over the world via stolen crystals. A transmutation machine is involved. Also, Leonardo Da Vinci. Schedules permitting, director Michael Lehmann and writer Daniel Waters will be on hand afterward to explain (er, discuss). We're guessing Willis, who co-wrote the screenplay, is less likely to appear.

Fri., July 15

The sexy and the undead come together at REDCAT, when Bruce LaBruce's gay zombie porn L.A. Zombie screens at 9:30 as part of Outfest 2011.
