Rose Theatre

Inconvenient Sequel

I'm very honored that Congressman Derek Kilmer will be at the Rose this Sunday evening to speak before the 7:00 p.m. showing of AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER. This screening is free, and all of the tickets disappeared in near-record time. Local climate action groups will be hosting a table before and after each screening of the movie, Friday, August 4th through Thursday, August 10th. And climate change educators will be moderating a Q&A following evening screenings on Tuesday, 8/8, Wednesday, 8/9, and Thursday, 8/10

The hugely popular THE BIG SICK enters its fourth week this Friday, moving from the Starlight Room to the Rosebud Cinema, while A GHOST STORYconcludes its engagement at the Rose this Thursday.

     I never saw the original stage version of ANGELS IN AMERICA, but the Mike Nichols televised version starring Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Patrick Wilson, Jeffrey Wright and Michael Gambon was brilliant. And the reviews for the revival by the National Theatre of London are equally glowing: "Spectacular." -Sunday Times. Part 1: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES plays this Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 a.m. And Part 2: PERESTROIKA plays next Saturday, 8/12, and Sunday 8/13. 

     Our very successful DANCE ON CAMERA festival that took place this past May, will unfortunately not be returning to the Rose until early 2019. The Dance Film Association in New York - my primary source for dance films - has decided to move their annual event from February each year to July. So in lieu of another three-day festival in the next 18 months, dance films will appear throughout the year. And three great ones are coming soon. STEP (opening 8/18) will knock you out. It won the Inspirational Filmmaking Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival. And for two days only (9/9-9/10) we're presenting the recently restored tap dancing classics NO MAPS ON MY TAPS and ABOUT TAP. "A lively showcase for veteran Harlem hoofers." -Time Out

     Late night romance and laughter is coming to the Starlight Room in August: (500) DAYS OF SUMMER (8/12), and SAY ANYTHING (8/26). Tickets are now available.

     Tickets are almost gone for next Wednesday's Starlight Classics presentation of OLIVER TWIST, with Los Angeles film scholar Ted Walch.

     Sam Shepard and Jean Moreau both passed away within the last week, and Patti Smith and L.A. Times film critic Kenneth Turan have written beautiful remembrances of them.
