Slate: "The Director and Star of DHEEPAN on the Refugee Crisis and Taking Inspiration From Scorsese."
We are very excited to open Jacques Audiard's DHEEPAN this Friday at the Royal and May 20th at the Playhouse 7 and Town Center 5. Winner of the Palme d’Or at last year's Cannes Film Festival, Audiard's (The Beat that My Heart Skipped, Rust and Bone, A Prophet) latest is a gripping, human, and timely tale of survival in which three Sri Lankan refugees pose as a family to flee their war-ravaged homeland for France, only to find themselves embroiled in violence in the Parisian suburbs. Slate just posted this interview with M. Audiard and his lead actor, Jesuthasan Antonythasan: Slate's Aisha Harris: Jacques, what drew you to telling this s [...]
DOUGH director John Goldschmidt: "The best way to challenge prejudice is through comedy." Plus a video message to audiences from Pauline Collins, the Oscar-nominated female lead of DOUGH.
In the comedy DOUGH, which we'll open April 29 at our West L.A., Pasadena and Encino theaters and May 6 in Claremont, curmudgeonly widower Nat Dayan (Jonathan Pryce) obstinately clings to his way of life and his livelihood as a Kosher bakery shop owner in London’s East End.

When Ayyash accidentally drops his stash into the mixing dough, the challah starts flying off the shelves and an unlikely friendship forms between [...]

Anniversary Classics: February Screenings include LA DOLCE VITA in Santa Monica, WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? with George Segal in West LA
We're celebrating Oscar season with screenings of two Academy Award powerhouses in our continuing Anniversary Classics Series. First, we offer a 55th anniversary screening of LA DOLCE VITA, one of the most influential of foreign films, and the recipient of 4 Academy Award nominations in 1961 - Best Director and Original Screenplay for Federico Fellini, Art Direction and Costume Design (an Oscar winner for Piero Gherardi). Fellini's sardonic take on the decadence of Rome in the 1960s reverberated throughout modern film history, and heavily influenced the 2013 Oscar foreign-language winner THE GREAT BEAUTY. So cruise along the Via Veneto wi [...]
