We’re pleased to announce we are restarting daily matinee shows on May 14 at the Claremont 5, NoHo 7, Playhouse 7, Royal and Monica Film Center and daily prime evening shows at the Town Center 5. L.A. County’s reduced COVID-19 infection numbers and move into the yellow tier makes expanded hours possible, giving cinephiles more chances to see movies in public. We aim to have our Glendale theater reopened on May 21.
For the upcoming week, we have, as always, new films for whatever suits your mood and interests:
Comedies: HERE TODAY (Billy Crystal teams up with Tiffany Haddish) and THE PAPER TIGERS (goofy middle-aged dad martial artists out for revenge).
Restored classics: THE STORY OF A THREE DAY PASS, Melvin Van Peebles’ 1968 feature, his first.
Innovative dramas with gifted actors: Andrew Garfield in MAINSTREAM and Lily Taylor in PAPER SPIDERS.
Superb documentaries: STATE FUNERAL, an astonishing look at Stalin’s send off, and THE HUMAN FACTOR, a riveting look at a crucial moment in the Mideast peace process.
