One classic way to endure the summer heat is catch a movie and enjoy the excellent air conditioning. You can do that any day, however, while the Drenched 5K Race in Exposition Park happens but once a year and it’s that time again: this Saturday, July 27th the park will be the site of a big water party/race with water balloons, 100-foot-long Slip-n-Slides, water pistols, super soakers, misting tunnels and, if the video below is to be believed, non-injurious hosing down by the L.A. Fire Department. Looks very fun, there will be music, food and beverages, and the money raised goes to Children’s Hospital L.A.

We’re very pleased to open NICKY’S FAMILY July 19. Today the L.A. Times published a piece about Sir Nicholas Winton, a very modest hero whose life-saving accomplishments went unacknowledged for decades: “Winton said he didn’t talk about his accomplishments because ‘there were more important things going on than to dwell in the past.'”
Beginning July 19 we’ll be screening NICKY’S FAMILY, the acclaimed documentary about Nicholas Winton, an Englishman who organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II: He was a big part of what we now know as the Kindertransport. This hero is still alive and in May CNN marked the occasion of his 104th birthday by broadcasting this piece about him and the new film.
Actresses Virginia Madsen, Daryl Hannah and Camryn Manheim will participate in a Q&A following the 7:30 screening of THE HOT FLASHES and will introduce the 10 PM screening at the Music Hall on Friday, July 12th. Please join them for a lively conversation about women, film, basketball….. and lots of other interesting things.
