Your Weekly Movie To-Do List
Kick off the weekend in a big way: The Aero Theatre is showing a 70 mm print of 2001: A Space Odyssey tonight.
In addition to Cinefamily’s Herzog series and Every Man For Himself at LACMA (see features in this section), two big repertory events kick off tonight. The UCLA Film and Television Archive’s two-month series Looking for Richard Brooks: An Appreciation launches with an appearance by actor Scott Wilson, who will present tonight’s opening film, In Cold Blood. And the American Cinematheque’s 13th annual Noir City series begins with a post–World War II–anxiety double feature: Robert Taylor stars as a traumatized, institutionalized vet in High Wall, followed by Anthony Mann’s Strangers in the Night.
Saturday (and Beyond)
This is generally a great week to catch holdovers that might not be around for much longer. We particularly recommend Certified Copy (at the Sunset 5 and Town Center); and Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (at the Sunset 5 through Thursday night, then Saturday morning at the Monica).
