I don't often step up and offer personal thoughts on new openings. After all, we are opening several films every week, and we love all our children equally. Also, those of you who have spotted me at the theatre (after ONLY IN THEATERS, I've sacrificed any anonymity I might have enjoyed) know that sometimes I'm catching up on films together with you at regular screenings. Not surprisingly, I prefer to see things in a theatre and don't like to watch things via screening links, even if offered in advance.But with THELMA, we have a film that I did get to see at an early festival showing, and I LOVED it so much that I can't help but share my enthusiasm

Actress Rachel Sennott (Shiva Baby, Bottoms) returns to Laemmle screens this Friday at the Monica Film Center, NoHo 7 and Town Center 5 with I Used to Be Funny. She plays an aspiring stand-up comedian and au pair struggling with PTSD as she decides whether or not to join the search for Brooke (Olga Petsa), a missing teenage girl she used to nanny.*Click here to watch the trailer.*"Rachel Sennott has the greatest face. It cannot lie, no matter what her characters are saying. That honesty makes her ideal for films with tricky tones... And it’s essential to I Used to Be Funny." - Johanna Schneller, Globe and Mail*"In her film debut, [writer-director

Laemmle Theatres and the Anniversary Classics Abroad Series present 65th anniversary screenings of Louis Malle’s 'The Lovers' ('Les Amants') starring Jeanne Moreau, on June 19 for one night only at 7:00 PM in West Los Angeles, Encino, Glendale, Claremont, and Santa Clarita. When first released in the United States in 1959, the film became an art house sensation with frank sexuality and nudity that inflamed the prudish American censors. Those censors, the Catholic Legion of Decency, and the repressive Hollywood Production Code wielded considerable influence at that time, preventing American films from exploring adult themes in a provocative manner

Over the weekend, writer-director Sean Baker (Tangerine, The Florida Project, Red Rocket) was awarded the Palme d'Or, the top prize, at this year's Cannes Film Festival for Anora, his comedy about a sex worker. New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis called the film "a giddily ribald picaresque." In his acceptance speech, Baker spoke eloquently about seeing movies in theaters. You can watch the whole thing online, but here's the key excerpt:*"This literally has been my singular goal as a filmmaker for the past 30 years. So I’m not really sure what I’m gonna do with the rest of my life, but I do know that I will continue to fight for cinema

This Friday we open the intense Italian drama Kidnapped: The Abduction of Edgardo Mortara at the Royal and Town Center, which is based on the true story of a Jewish family in 19th century Bologna whose young son was secretly baptized as a baby by his nurse. Years later, the cardinal orders the boy abducted so he can receive a Catholic education. The scandal received wide attention at the time and now gets a terrific film adaptation by Marco Bellocchio (The Wedding Director, The Traitor, Marx Can Wait) which, among other accolades, earned a Palme d'Or nomination at Cannes and a Best Foreign Film nomination at the César Awards.*"It is a full-tilt
