Something that would be cool for the New Bev to do in December is a tribute to the great 2017 films that took advantage of 35mm projection, so:
“Murder on the Orient Express”
Maybe A24 can have a print for “The Florida Project” struck since it was shot in 35 and Paramount can be convinced to make one for “mother!”.
If a print was/is struck, I’d love to see the New Bev screen “Under the Skin” again.
If Fox makes 35mm prints in addition to the 70mm ones, I could see New Bev doing a double bill of this and the Lumet “Murder on the Orient Express” at some point.
* or to be really cheeky, show the ’17 version and “Dunkirk” together.
Out of curiosity, will there be any runs of the “extended” “Grindhouse” edit your theater did last March or just the standard theatrical cut for the time being?
Unless there’s a 35 print of the restored version, it’s not happening, D.Z. The New Beverly has been 35mm only since October 2014 and it’s gonna stay that way for a long time.
* also, the Laemmle Fine Arts theater that ran the restored “Phantasm” print also screened it in 35mm last fall and the print looked as good as the restored digital version. Sounded a hell of a lot better, too.
Experienced that double bill last (Saturday) night. While the latter is far from one of my favorite Bond films, there’s a certain charm that comes from seeing the “Jaws films” together on the big screen.
I also second the notion there be more 007 double bills. I remember the Cinematheque ran double bills in 2012, all on 35, leading up to the release of “Skyfall” and “Skyfall” ran as a print in 2013 at the Cinefamily for a night.
leifj2009, I thought the “La La Land” screenings back in February sold out immediately?
THAT’D be one hell of a double bill (especially with those opening scenes). If Sony Classics had any prints struck for “Elle”, of course.June 17, 2017 at 12:40 am Funeral Parade of Roses – Toshio Matsumoto Tribute #17820
meheuck, it’s doing an exclusive run at the Cinefamily starting this weekend.
1. “There Will Be Blood”
2. “The Master”
4. “Boogie Nights”
5. “Punch-Drunk Love”
6. “Inherent Vice”
7. “Hard Eight”
Whenever there’s a Criterion sale at Barnes & Noble, I always feel like I should program the assault theme from “The Entity” to play when I open my wallet. But I always tell myself it’s to expand my horizons and learn about directors they never really had the time, patience or cojones to teach us about in school.
I keep a list of the films I own from Criterion on their site, the most recent addition being “Buena Vista Social Club”.
* two films I would love to see them add in my lifetime are “Barry Lyndon” and von Trier’s “The Idiots”.
1. “Inglourious Basterds”
2. “Pulp Fiction”
3. “Kill Bill”
4. “The Hateful Eight”
5. “Death Proof”
6. “Jackie Brown”
7. “Django Unchained”
8. “Reservoir Dogs”
I certainly hope so. Now that “Death Proof” is finally (and I honestly can’t stress the finally part out enough because it’s deserved its time in the midnight “sun”) getting more regular screenings, one can hope Monsieur Tarantino will have a new print of “The Whole Bloody Affair” commissioned solely for the New Bev’s use (i.e. minus the French subtitles for the Cannes audience. No offense meant to the French, but when it comes to “Kill Bill”, the only subtitles I want to see involving French are when the Bride and Sofie Fatale are playing their little game of “Who Loses What Appendage?”.
The one I remember hearing about was an Australian gangster film that was mentioned when “The Hateful Eight” would be released.
I’m fully behind that one if it means a plum role for Jacki Weaver.
I think there needs to be a confirmed American release date before the New Bev can show it, not to mention I get the distinct feeling there’ll be a “Dunkirk” run in July similar to the “Interstellar” one they did back in November ’14.
* which hopefully means more Nolan movies showing at the New Bev that month (:coughcoughDARKKNIGHTTRILOGYRETROSPECTIVEcough:)
But when the release date of “Voyage of Time: Life’s Journey” is official, if there are prints, I’m sure the New Bev will run it at some point.
* of course, I want to know why the California Science Center ditched it a month later. Every show I went to was practically sold out.
