Weekly What To Do: LA LA It's Man, It's People!

Starts Fri Sep. 15

Black Dynamite, but in the Old West.
Hell bent on avenging the death of his father, Johnny Black vows to gun down Brett Clayton and becomes a wanted man in the process while posing as a preacher in a small mining town that's been taken over by a notorious land baron.
Starts Fri Sep. 15
 Winner of the Grand Prix at the first Tokyo International Film Festival in 1985, TYPHOON CLUB is widely regarded as the seminal film of director Shinji Sômai's career. A work of raw, elemental power, it follows an ensemble of junior high students in rural Japan, beset by a summer-y malaise as a typhoon looms. When the storm makes landfall, the teens find themselves holed up in their school unsupervised, while another classmate (Yuki Kudo) disappears alone on a harrowing trek to the big city. Set adrift in a world suddenly unmoored, the students let loose their pent-up angst and burgeoning passions in a series of propulsive, phantasmic scenes—part apocalypse, part utopia—as the deluge rages on into the night.

50th Anniversary Screening
Wednesday, September 13, at 7:00 PM
Laemmle’s Royal Theatre
Special Guest Co-Star Leigh Taylor-Young

Laemmle Theatres and the Anniversary Classics Series present a 50th anniversary of the prophetic sci-fi classic, 'Soylent Green.' The sole surviving cast member, Leigh Taylor-Young, will join to share memories of making this powerful movie. This still-timely film, set in New York in 2022, was one of the first to address issues of pollution, global warming, overpopulation, and an epidemic of homelessness. In many ways it predicted the dark future imagined in 'Blade Runner,' made a decade later.
