Late-Night 'Largo' Film Screening to Benefit Autism Speaks
For the last 15 months, Largo: A Film has traveled the worldwide film festival circuit, and next week it's finally coming home. This award-winning documentary captures the spirit of the old Largo on Fairfax Ave., offering up the venue's signature blend of music and comedy. The film, which was produced by Largo owner Mark Flanagan and filmmaker Andrew van Baal, features performances by Fiona Apple, Jon Brion, Aimee Mann, Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Flight of the Concords, Nickel Creek, Jackson Browne and more.
This late-night screening will be the first at Largo's new home at the Coronet Theatre. According to a recent Largo e-mail, it will also include "a special short live performance." The event will take place Thursday, Oct. 29, at 11:30 p.m. Tickets are only $10, and the proceeds will support Autism Speaks. To purchase tickets, call (310) 855-0350, and for more information visit www.largofilm.com.
Note: The screening will follow Cinematic Titanic's final evening at Largo, and LAist suggests making a night of it by attending both shows!
