Rare horror classics screening in L.A.
The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, most recently, welcomed Shaun of the Dead helmer Edgar Wright to program a mini-fest entitled “The Wright Stuff.” Movie-goers were treated to a wide range of flicks near and dear to his lil’ British heart.
Now it is Eli Roth’s turn.
You want to know what makes this man tick? What influenced films like Cabin Fever and the “Hostel” series? Then look no further than “The Greats of Roth,” a two-week film fest programmed by the media-lovin’ director.
The festival is comprised of several of Roth’s favorite films, many of which are difficult to find cult classics rarely shown on the big screen. Roth will introduce select screenings, schedule permitting. The double features have been selected with tremendous care, and will give audiences members a chance to watch these films as they were meant to be seen â on the big screen, with an enthusiastic audience.
The festival line-up goes like this:
February 20th – 21st
February 22nd – 23rd
February 24th – 26th
February 27th – 28th
THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT
February 29th – March 1st
Admission to all of the screenings is $7 for adults, $6 for students with ID and $4 for children and seniors. All evening screenings begin at 7:30, with a matinee double feature on weekends. No advance tickets will be sold. The box office opens 15 minutes before the first show.
The New Beverly Cinema is located at 7165 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles, a block west of La Brea.
