Photo Gallery: The All New Laemmle Monica Film Center

If you haven't had a chance to visit our newly opened Monica Film Center, you're missing out! It looks fantastic and fellow movie nerds have already said it feels like home. But what's a movie theater without movies, right? Well, we're off to a great start on that front as well! The latest Coen brothers film HAIL, CAESAR! opens this Friday. TROUBLEMAKERS: THE STORY OF LAND ART also starts Friday and the film's director will participate in a Q&A following the 7:20PM show opening night. ANOMALISA, THE LADY IN THE VAN, and THE 2016 OSCAR NOMINATED SHORT DOCS will continue through next week. Thursday is the last day to catch the Oscar-nomi [...]

A rare chance to see all five Oscar-nominated foreign language films before the Academy Awards.

The Academy Awards are many things: entertaining, infuriating, moving, boring. For foreign films, our bread and butter, the Oscars can be quite effective at bringing attention to worthy movies from abroad. That done, the next challenge for cinephiles in the general public is to find a way to see them as they were meant to be seen: on a big screen with an audience in a movie theater. In a typical year, the five nominees for the Foreign Language Film Oscar include one or two that hit theaters months earlier, one or two that are currently in theaters, and one or two that may come out after the big night. This year, that night is February 28 and [...]

New Year's Resolution: See More Movies, Spend Less Money

'Spend less money' always ranks high on those annual lists of top resolutions for the New Year. And, no matter how many films we see here in Laemmle-land, 'see more movies' always sits atop our list.

Kenneth Turan in today's L.A. Times: "John Ford-directed 'Rio Grande' to get the big-screen treatment in West Los Angeles"

If you haven't been keeping up with our Anniversary Classics Series, you've been missing out! Last week's screening of YOUNG CASSIDY honoring legendary film editor Anne V. Coates was a prime example of how film history lives and breathes. The youthful 90-year old Coates passed on the wisdom of her more than sixty year career (and still going strong!) to an appreciative audience of admirers. More importantly, it demonstrated how vibrant industry veterans can be in our youth obsessed culture and film industry. Now there's another chance to celebrate film history and those witness to it with our tribute to the late Maureen O'Hara in our 65th [...]

Anniversary Classics - 2015 Wrap-up, John Ford's YOUNG CASSIDY to Kickoff 2016

Our Anniversary Classics Series closed out 2015 in grand fashion with a sold out 35th anniversary screening of SOMEWHERE IN TIME at the Royal on 12/15. This romantic fantasy cast its spell once again to an appreciative crowd, many of whom had not seen their favorite on the big screen since its original opening in 1980. Through the years it has developed a cult following and after viewing again last night its easy to see why.
