The Wright Stuff at the New Beverly Cinema
For me, Edgar Wright is one of those directors whose films I see the moment they hit theaters. Both Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz share a comic spirit that never diminishes even after many viewings. This past August, Wright hosted several sold-out screenings of his films at the New Beverly Cinema and starting December 2nd the New Beverly will turn over its programming reins to him for what is sure to be a rollicking time.
The 7:30 pm screenings will be introduced by Wright and will include a Q & A afterwards with notables from one of the films. The selection of films is all over the map, from horror to comedy to musicals to science-fiction. The series will run from the 2nd to the 17th and tickets are only $7 at the door (cash only). I recommend buying an 8-pack of tickets for $36 since the New Beverly Cinema is always reviving cool flicks.
