Today marks the New Beverly Cinema's 30th year in business – and this month’s calendar is a show-for-show replication of the New Beverly’s 1978 debut calendar. The double bill tonight are Sci-Fi classics Soylent Green with Charleton Heston and Westworld with Yul Brenner, about a Wild West amusement park exhibits start killing off visitors.
