September at the New Beverly!
Throughout September we honor famed filmmaker J. Lee Thompson, covering some of the director’s early British work in the 1950s through to his lengthy collaboration with the Cannon Group in the ’80s, highlighting his greatest hits (The Guns of Navarone, Cape Fear) and his action-packed output starring Charles Bronson, his Planet of the Apes sequels and other amazing films you need to see. Plus, we pay tribute to Michael Cimino, celebrate Claude Lelouch, Ozploitation, Laurel & Hardy and Dean Martin as Mett Helm, host The Hateful Eight at midnight, kiddee matinees every weekend and much, much more!
