Friday, November 5 – 7:30 PM

LOS ANGELES TIMES ROUNDTABLE: YOUNG HOLLYWOOD, 90 min. Los Angeles Times Calendar writer Amy Kaufman sits down with some of Hollywood's brightest young talent for an inside look at life in front of the cameras (and on the red carpet) for the film industry's under-30 stars. Roundtable discussion with Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan, Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield, with additional panelists TBA. Get your free tickets at starting October 28th. Not available on Fandango.



Friday, November 5 – 9:30 PM

West Coast Premiere! I WILL FOLLOW, 2010, Forward Movement, 88 min. Dir. Ava DuVernay. For over a year, Maye (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) has been living in Topanga Canyon, caring for her aunt Amanda, a musician dying of breast cancer. The film takes place over the course of one day, soon after Amanda’s passing, as Maye prepares to move out and a series of visitors arrives. When Amanda’s estranged daughter Fran (Michole White) lays claim to her mother’s mink coat, it leads to a vicious battle over who loved Amanda most. Discussion following the film with director Ava DuVernay and cast members. Get your free tickets at starting October 28th. Not available on Fandango. Trailer



Saturday, November 6 – 3:30 PM

David Lynch Presents: ERASERHEAD, 1977, Absurda, 89 min. Antagonistic reviews of [David Lynch’s] first feature prompted midnight movie distributor Ben Barenholtz to strategically roll out the film over the course of two years, literally "cultivating" its audience. Shot in dilapidated industrial settings, seething with rumbles and hisses, peopled with disfigured and eccentric characters and featuring a famously indefinable creature described as a premature baby, the film propels viewers into a shocking, black & white dreamscape. Trailer

SUNSET BOULEVARD, 1950, Paramount, 110 min. Speaking at his AFI tribute in 1989, Billy Wilder concluded his speech with thoughts on working for the studios: "Remember, they have the power, but we have the glory." That glory was never more evident than in SUNSET BOULEVARD, a poison pen letter to Hollywood and the living ghosts of silent film. Today SUNSET BOULEVARD stands as a perfect encapsulation of the work of Billy Wilder — vivid, acidic and thoroughly modern. Director David Lynch will be speaking between films. Get your free tickets at starting October 28th. Not available on Fandango. Trailer



Saturday, November 6 – 8:00 PM

Gala: Sneak Preview! BARNEY'S VERSION, 2010, Sony Pictures Classics, 132 min. Dir. Richard J. Lewis.
