Jan 10-12
Egyptian Theatre 6712 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood, CA 90028
Woah, huge selection of films to see on the big screen this weekend. We're most interested in the Airplane screening with both Zucker Bros and Director Jim Abrams.  Oh, and of course the insanity of Roar.
Start off 2020 the right way and make a few New Year’s Resolutions inspired by this series of fitfully inspiring films. This is the year to finally kick your glue sniffing habit (AIRPLANE) and start exercising (STRIPES) and shedding a few pounds (THE INCREDIBLE SHINRKING MAN). Stuck in a rut? Perhaps you should find a new job (SCARFACE), make a few new friends (ROSEMARY’S BABY), or spend more time with family (THE OTHER). Feeling down? Nothing says joy like adopting a new pet (ROAR) or finding new love (THE BLUE ANGEL). Or maybe what you need is a new hobby - none are simpler than picking up a good book to start reading more (NECRONOMICON: BOOK OF DEAD) or spending a little time with nature (DELIVERANCE). You might even just need to get a little more sleep (DREAMS) and relax on a much needed vacation (WAKE IN FRIGHT). Whatever your needs are, these New Year’s Resolutions will have you covered!
