From Classic to Cult: Movies as They Should Be Seen

Since 1981 American Cinematheque has devoted itself to preserving and promoting the best of classic and cult film to the viewing public. The Cinematheque operates two venues, the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and the Aero Theatre right here in Santa Monica. Big name chain theaters have been known to cut corners: they disregard aspect ratio, use projector lenses ill-suited to the film, ignore acoustic nuance, etc. At the Aero, none of this escapes attention; every detail of your movie-going experience has been planned with painstaking care. Special screenings for the month of September include a tribute to the great French actress Jeanne Moreau, with double feature La Notte (Antonioni) and Diary of a Chambermaid (Buñuel), movies adapted from the work of master horror writer Stephen King, with The Shining, Carrie, and Shawshank Redemption, and a selection from auteur Stanley Kubrik, with The Paths of Glory, The Killing, and Dr. Strangelove.

Address: 1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90403
