Pencil This In: One More Wonderful Life Screening, Godfather Double Feature, The Artist's Museum at MOCA
It’s all quiet on the new event front tonight—people are still recovering from their egg nog overdoses—but we managed to unearth a few gems:
The New Beverly screens a double feature of The Godfather and The Godfather II this afternoon starting at 4 pm. Based on the books written by Mario Puzo, and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, these films have become integral works of American film history. Plus, you get to watch Al Pacino in his prime before he started doing his weird, rambling speeches at award ceremonies.
MUSEUMThe Artist’s Museum exhibition at MOCA runs through Jan. 31. It showcases works by more than 100 artists that have shaped LA’s “artistic dialogue” over the course of the past 30 years. Among other works, The Artist's Museum marks the MOCA premiere of Doug Aitken's electric earth (1999), a “hyperkinetic fable of modern life in the form of an eight-channel video installation.” Open until 5 pm. $10 admission.
MORE HOLIDAY FILM
Probably your last chance this year to see It’s a Wonderful Life on the big screen, tonight at 8 pm at the ArcLight Hollywood. Watch Jimmy Stewart find out what the world would have been like if he’d never been born. It may be corny, but the ending of this 1946 Frank Capra film get us every time.
