Oscar hype reaches a fever pitch this month as we close in on the 83rd Academy Awards presentation on February 27th. Who will be honored for the greatest achievements in filmmaking in 2010? If you aren’t up to speed on the most talked-about contenders, or if you are already Oscar-savvy and want a terrific refresher course before the big day, this is your chance.

Join us at the Egyptian and Aero Theatres as we roll out the red carpet for some of this year’s contenders. Included in the lineup is director David O. Russell and other guests (TBC) in person with THE FIGHTER. Don’t miss our yearly staples - the Oscar-nominated shorts program including all nominated live-action and animated shorts from 2010, KPCC 89.3 FM’s "FilmWeek" Oscar Preview live recording, the Oscar-nominated editors seminar "Invisible Art, Visible Artists" presented by the American Cinema Editors. Also included is the Oscar-nominated art directors seminar presented by the Art Directors Guild and the Set Decorators Society of America and the all-new Oscar Music Composer Seminar with the five nominees for Best Original Score! Finally, the night before the big show, swing by the Aero Theatre for a screening of the 1966 Oscar winner for Best Picture, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS.

 

 

 

Friday, February 4 – 7:30 PM SOLD OUT

Blu-ray Launch! MEMENTO, 2001, Newmarket Films, 113 min. Dir. Christopher Nolan. Guy Pearce is Leonard Shelby, a man with no short-term memory and in search of his wife’s killer. He uses Polaroids, tattoos - even hand-scrawled notes - to remember not only clues about the murder but also aspects of his identity. Unfolding in mind-boggling fragmentary fashion, this tense noir has a sting in its scorpion tail. With Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano. Discussion following with Christopher Nolan. [35mm] Trailer | Buy Tickets

Saturday, February 5 – 7:30 PM

THE FIGHTER, 2010, Paramount Pictures, 115 min. Dir. David O. Russell. Boxer "Irish" Mickey Ward (Mark Wahlberg) is on the verge of complete career collapse, with a losing streak getting him no closer to the lightweight title, his "Mom-ager" (Melissa Leo) killing him with love and his crack-addict brother (Christian Bale) for a trainer. When Mickey falls for the feisty, hard-nosed Charlene (Amy Adams), who shrewdly sees through his family, he begins to realize that achieving the dream of a lifetime may require breaking from the people who have shaped his life. Discussion following with director David O. Russell and other special guests (TBC). [35mm] Trailer and Official Website | Buy Tickets
