Your Weekly Movie To-Do List 

Wim Wenders, Charles Burnett and Barry Lyndon

Thursday, Mar 8 2012

Thurs., March 8

Tonight LACMA spotlights Wim Wenders with a double bill of the dreamlike The American Friend (featuring a performance by Nicholas Ray) and the rarely screened Chambre 666.

Meanwhile, the Melnitz Theater at UCLA is hosting the L.A. premiere of Life Without Principle, directed by the ultrakinetic crime genre master Johnnie To.

Location Info

Also, the Egyptian starts its Marx Brothers series tonight (double features every night through Sunday) with A Day at the Races and The Big Store.

Fri., March 9

It's a night of battered and bleeding faces at the Aero with Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull and Ralph Nelson's Requiem for a Heavyweight.

At the other end of the spectrum, the New Beverly is having an evening of class and refinement with a double dose of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's and Roman Holiday. (Also Sat.)

Sat., March 10

Stanley Kubrick's three-hour, Ryan O'Neal–starring epic Barry Lyndon will be displayed in full 35 mm splendor at the Aero. Since this is a Warner Bros. film and the studio has recently made it very difficult for repertory theaters to gain access to its film prints, screenings of Kubrick's work — as well as those of countless other filmmakers — in the proper format will be increasingly more difficult to come by.

Sun., March 11

Charles Burnett, Ben Caldwell, Julie Dash and Jamaa Fanaka are among the filmmakers whose radically charged work from the 1970s will be exhibited at the American Cinematheque's Spielberg Theater as part of the Alternative Projections program The L.A. Rebellion: Boundary-Breaking Shorts. Caldwell will be in attendance for the event.
