Film has an important place at LACMA. In partnership with Film Independent, the museum presents screen classics, new releases, documentaries, one-of-a-kind events, guest-curated programs, and conversations on film and filmmaking. The museum also presents screenings, weekend series and retrospectives in conjunction with exhibitions. Plus, every Tuesday we offer matinee screenings of Hollywood classics.
