LA Film Fest: Day 9
TheL.A. Film Festival lumbers towards its final weekend today and The Director Lunch Talk series has its best interview yet. John Horn talks to Danny Boyle (Sunshine, Trainspotting) at 12:30 p.m. at the Target Red Room. Another free talk is on tap at 7:00 p.m. at the Hammer Museum. It's Been There, Done That: A Conversation with Mickey Rooney. If you've never seen Mr. Rooneytalk in person, treat yourself to this program. Not only is he a legend, but he has absolutely no filter. Expect hilariously inappropriate non-sequiturs. Another Hollywood legend will be at the Italian Culture Institute when Entertainment Weekly talks with Buck Henry at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for that one, though, are eleven bucks.
Bands on Broxton is back at noon and 7:00 p.m. at the Festival Promenade. Another cool concert goes down at 8:00 p.m at California Plaza downtown. It's Double G's Concert 9Net. Geoff "Double G" Gallegos of L.A.'s Dakah Hip Hop Orchestra will be leading a program that features jazz-inflected interpretations of music from the best films of the '70s as well as Disney classics. Best of all, it's free!
Screenings today are Lady Chatterley at 2:30 p.m. at the Billy Wilder, Namibia: The Struggle for Liberation at 3:00 p.m. at the Mann Festival, Dynamite Warrior at 4:30 p.m. at the Majestic Crest, Resolved at 5:00 p.m. at the Landmark, Dry Season at 6:00 p.m. at the Billy Wilder, 2 Days in Paris at 7:00 p.m. at the Mann Festival, Constantine's Sword at 7:30 p.m at the Landmark and the Flaming Lips documentary U.F.O.s at the Zoo: The Legendary Concert in Oklahoma City at 8:30 p.m. at the Ford Amphitheatre.
