Dear Laemmle Fans,
One month since we shut down. Another month (at least) to go. We know you’re aching to come see a movie in our theatres again, and we hope one of these Laemmle Virtual Cinema offerings will keep your hopes alive for now.
The Booksellers and Beyond The Visible: Hilma af Klint are documentaries that were supposed to open theatrically, and should appeal to fans of our Culture Vulture series. Straight Up is a delightful and well-reviewed American indie that we were able to show just before the closure, and which deserves another opportunity to connect with audiences. And finally, we have a pair of documentaries on one of the great minds of the 20th century, Ram Dass: Dying to Know, and Becoming Nobody. He left us in December of last year but his teachings are eternal and can help guide us through these difficult times.
Please support us by buying a ticket to watch one of these movies, or any of the two dozen films we’ve previously added to the program. The revenue is meaningful, but the contribution to the community of arthouse cinema is equally important. And you’ll be helping to preserve one of the things you love most about Los Angeles.
All the best,
