The Goethe-Institut Los Angeles and the American Cinematheque will celebrate the 10th annual German Currents Festival of German Film, as well as Austrian and Swiss, from Thursday, Oct 20 – Sunday, Oct 23, 2016 at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
Join us for our 22nd annual showcase of the most vibrant new films from Spain! Films include Goya-winning dramedy TRUMAN, such comedies as Paco León’s KIKI, LOVE TO LOVE and such action-packed hits as TO STEAL FROM A THIEF.
Our salute to Paul Schrader includes his new crime drama DOG EAT DOG, such films as MISHIMA: A LIFE IN FOUR CHAPTERS, AMERICAN GIGOLO and PATTY HEARST, as well as classics he penned for Martin Scorsese (such as RAGING BULL). The writer-director joins us in person for several screenings.
Art House Theater Day celebrates "brick-and-mortar theaters that are passionately dedicated to providing access to the best cinematic experience." Join us at the Egyptian and the Aero for a weekend ranging from cool indie fare (CON MAN) to classics (THE RULES OF THE GAME)
Creator Gene Roddenberry had envisioned the sci-fi series “Star Trek” as the interstellar answer to the popular Western “Wagon Train” but couldn’t have possibly imagined how long the “five-year mission” of the U.S.S. Enterprise would last. Join us for a look back at the Star Trek movies and a new documentary on Leonard Nimony, directed by Adam Nimoy.
