A brand new 35mm print of LE PETIT SOLDAT screens at Landmark’s Nuart ‘til Thursday!
If you’re at Comic-Con on Friday the 13th or Saturday the 14th, look for Ama and Jade who will be sweet-talking the hell outta Comic-Con folks and passing out 500 of these little flyers! Hugs and good times included!
Keep up with us on Twitter to see where we’ll be venturing!
(Note: I added the red tint to this flyer for fun, but the ones we have will be black on red cardstock. We’ll also add unique words/drawings/randomness to the back of each card!)
This gorgeous poster of THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK was designed by the great Ralph McQuarrie, who is famously known for his conceptual illustrations for STAR WARS, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, *batteries not included, E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK and more.
I came across this and was stunned and incredibly intrigued. The art of this poster alone has me dying to somehow see this film in 35mm, preferably in a cabin in the woods or at a Drive-In, which is what helped the film gross $25 million when it came out.
If you have any leads on a 35mm print of this film, please let us know at moviesinla at gmail dot com. Thank you!
Just reminding you about the kind of people who text while a movie is playing in a cinema…
Quite scary that a headline reads “Is It Time To Let Movie Goers Send Text During A Film?" on Deadline.
Oh, world. Oh, young folks. Oh, people who don’t care about experiences…
I learned more about Gathr Films, which is “Theatrical distribution from the bottom up”.
I think it’s definitely an awesome concept, and thanks to this grassroots, presale type of marketing, Our Pick of the Day Scott Glosserman’s BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON screens tonight at Downtown Independent.
Let us know what you think! Would love to see more sold out screenings this way.
Okay. This is funny. This is nice.
Just spent an hour listening to children who were born after 9/11 laugh at movies Georges Méliès made over 100 years ago.
There is nothing better on this earth.
Absolutely heartwarming. I hope this happened at the Aero today; it was our Pick of the Day!
THANK YOU for checkin’ us out.
Lemme, Jade Luber, explain a coupla things.
We, Jade Luber & Doug Duke, love movies. Fucking LOVE. Love. Love. Love. Love. Love. Love. Love. Love.
One night, Jade had a dream to open a 24 hour movie theatre.
Realistically, until that day can come, she aimed to promote and attend the incredible theatres and events around LA that showcased her first love, Film.
In 2010, through 2011, Movies in LA was started, and since then, we have been picking and highlighting amazing film screenings around LA. There are so many incredible events ALL THE TIME, we haven’t even been to all of the theatres!
You can assume that every “Pick of the Day” / “POTD” / “#POTD” are films we would theoretically, hopefully be attending. Sometimes it’s like picking children, but luckily, everyone is truly equally amazing.
Doug started working at Laemmle’s Town Center 5 in December 2011. Say hello if you see the big bearded fellow with black glasses.
Your support keeps us going! All 7 of you! Seriously, we love you. As long as you keep coming back, we’ll keep shit updated. This is for our knowledge, too!
Jade just wants to make and watch movies forever. Forever, and ever, and ever. She feels better about movies than she does about men. Because no matter how bad films are, usually, there’s a little heart in ALL of ‘em.
So. There are a few sections on our site.
This is our master calendar of happenings in Los Angeles. That is, cinematic happenings; celluloid (most of the time; read here via the incredible Julia Marchese) projecting onto people’s gleeful, horrified, excited, aroused, bored, happy, fucking fantastic faces every day.
Every last Thursday, Movies in LA hosts a retrospective at the Niche.LA Video Art Gallery on Gallery Row Downtown. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to get Event Info usually posted the week before the screening.
In 2011, Jade & Doug tallied a combined 432 films. This year, we aim to attend as many films in theatres, on the Silver Screen with an audience, as they are ALL best experienced. Keep up with TallyTeers 2012.
Next year, Jade dreams to travel the world to as many cinemas as she possibly can. More details will unfold as 2012 carries on.
Word contains posts & videos from contributors (amazing friends and Jade & Doug) and posts about Movies in LA.
This is Movies in LA. We are so grateful for all of the films that screen in LA every day, most of the time with the people that actually made or are in the films gracing the theatres we love so deeply.
Now that a lot of theatres are closing, converting to digital, 35mm is rarely being produced, attendance is down, the economy sucks… people don’t realize that our art culture is still thriving and so fucking beautiful and exciting.
We hope that you join us in celebrating and experiencing Movies in Los Angeles.
Five months ago, we posted our first video interview ever with Writer/Director David Robert Mitchell.
Last June, we saw THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER at the KCET Cinema Series with Pete Hammond. We had the privilege of meeting David along with the wonderful Amanda Bauer (read our Q&A with her here) after falling in love with MYTH. Jade saw it 3 additional times afterwards, and Doug twice. We are so happy it’s on Netflix Instant.
We hope you enjoy this interview, and please do check out THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER when you have a chance! We are very excited for David’s next film, ELLA WALKS THE BEACH, going into production this Spring!
Also check out our bonus clip of David’s Favorite Films & Filmmakers!
