Your Weekly LAist Film Calendar

Every so often, two movies play in theaters that appear so similar, it rips a hole in the cultural zeitgeist. Antz & A Bug's Life. Armageddon & Deep Impact. Capote & Infamous. Back to the Future & Back to the Future. Take your pick; the entire trilogy plays this weekend at both the New Beverly and the Aero. Same Doc-day, same Doc-ticket price. It's probably easier to sneak beverages into the New Bev, but Great Scott - do NOT, under any circumstances, play the Back to the Future drinking game! Trust me on this...
In a more sober, strictly business part of town, the Fine Arts Theatre & Laemmle's Music Hall present the Hollywood Black Film Festival. The 10-year old "Black Sundance" has previously attracted the likes of Sidney Poitier, Forest Whitaker, Spike Lee, John Singleton & Ice-T, and this year boasts a slate of filmmaking & financing seminars, live entertainment mixers, indie shorts programs & award-winning mystery-drama Gospel Hill. Julia Stiles, Danny Glover AND RZA? Sold.
Full list appears below. See you at the movies!
