Miracle Mile is a cult classic worth its salt (and pepper, too) about an ordinary man (Anthony Edwards) who overhears a phone call confirming an impending nuclear strike. Writer-director Steve De Jarnatt constructs this tightly-woven narrative according to the three classical unities (action, place, and time), and is as much a love letter to Los Angeles as it is a slow-burning apocalyptic thriller. In honor of the film’s 30th anniversary, UCLA has curated an evening that will include a Q&A with De Jarnatt following a 35mm presentation.

UCLA’s Billy Wilder Theater, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., Westwood; Sun., July 14, 7 p.m.; $10. (310) 206-8013, cinema.ucla.edu.

Stuber, Crawl, Art of Self Defense, Darlin’, Three Peaks, Come Around, Gremlins, Armstrong, The Farewell, Firecrackers, Lying and Stealing, Rojo, Saving Zoe, Sea of Shadows, Summer Night, Super 30, Sword of Trust
