Welcome to L.A. Weekly's Movie Picks, your look at the hottest films in Los Angeles theaters this week — from indie art-house gems and classics to popcorn-perfect blockbusters and new movies garnering buzz. Check here every week before you make your big-screen plans.
Friday, Feb. 22
In case you're new to our fair city, Quentin Tarantino owns the New Beverly Cinema and furnishes the busy screening schedules with prints from his own collection. This means that QT's films screen frequently at the theater, usually at midnight, always on celluloid. This month, a gorgeous 35mm print of Pulp Fiction will screen. Tarantino's 1994 neo-classic earned the director a Best Screenplay Oscar, and it features some of the most famous banter and shocking violence of the decade. Grab a Royale with cheese and show up early to check out a full set of rare German lobby cards. New Beverly Cinema, 7165 Beverly Blvd., Fairfax; Fri., Feb. 22, 11:59 p.m.; $10. (323) 938-4038, thenewbev.com.
Also opening Friday, Feb. 22: 1st Summoning; The Changeover; How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World; The Iron Orchard; It's a Hard Truth, Ain't It; Run the Race; Styx; Total Dhamaal
