JUNE AT THE NEW BEVERLY & ASTOR THEATRE
June kicks off a Sci-Fi Summer at the Quentin Tarantino owned LA cult film house The New Beverly, where everything is shown in 35mm Print Format. Highlights include a slate of Star Wars rip-offs, subversive Paul Verhoeven classics, a powerhouse double feature of The Road Warrior & Mad Max: Fury Road, plus a celebration of Director Jerry Schatzberg. The New Beverly also pays tribute to actor Michael Parks, a spotlight of some of their favorite comedy directors, and a very special advance screening of Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled! All that plus midnights, kiddee matinees and much, much more!
Sci Fi highlights include double features of MESSAGE FROM SPACE (1977) plus the truly awful STAR CRASH (1978) on June 27th, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE (1979) plus Disney's THE BLACK HOLE (1979) on June 9th & 10th and the 2001 sequel 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT (1984) plus INTERSTELLAR (2014) on June 30th. There'll also be a month's worth of Sci-Fi classics at midnight including THE OMEGA MAN (1971).
Also worth a look will be a great comedy double of KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE (1977) plus ANIMAL HOUSE (1978) on June 7th and 8th, and the Bob Hoskins classic THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY (1980) plus Brian De Palma's THE UNTOUCHABLES (1987) on June 28th and 29th.
