Series at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood

Thu, May 24, 2012 - Mon, Dec 31, 2012

Actor, director and mogul Raj Kapoor (1924 - 1988) was one of the giants of Indian cinema and is synonymous with the rise of the monolith known as Bollywood. Largely unknown in North America - except of course to millions of fans of South Asian descent - Kapoor is revered not only in India but throughout the former Soviet empire, the Middle East and beyond for the films he made during the Golden Age of Indian cinema. Join us at the American Cinematheque for monthly screenings of the Bollywood films of Raj Kapoor. Kicking off the series in May is AWAARA (THE VAGABOND) at the Egyptian.

Malcolm McDowell In Person!

Fri, Mar 16, 2012 - Sun, Mar 18, 2012

Actor Malcolm McDowell’s working-class roots anticipated his brilliant film debut in IF... and his subsequent portrayal of charming sociopath Alex in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. This startling, explosive talent was unwilling to ever accept the status quo. His track record, ranging from films like O LUCKY MAN! and TIME AFTER TIME to later acclaimed movies such as ASSASSIN OF THE TSAR and the stylish GANGSTER NO. 1, are evidence of a fiery, youthful brilliance undiminished by time. Join us for an in-person tribute to the actor on the occasion of his receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
