LA Film Fest: Day 9
The L.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. Rooney talk 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!
