Academy @ LACMA

This month, Academy @ LACMA presents a 60th-anniversary screening of On the Waterfront with a discussion with its Academy Award®–winning star Eva Marie Saint. The series “The Essential Orson Welles” concludes with the final two films that the director completed in his lifetime: the critically acclaimed Shakespeare adaptation Chimes at Midnight and the groundbreaking film essay F for Fake.

The Academy presents its second “Live Commentary” event with a 10th-anniversary screening of the comedy Napoleon Dynamite with actor Jon Heder and writer-director Jared Hess in person to discuss the film as it is screened.

The month wraps up with a Spike Lee retrospective—with a 25th-anniversary screening of his incendiary film Do the Right Thing and a panel discussion with Lee and key members of his crew, moderated by John Singleton.

Academy @ LACMA events are held at the Bing Theater at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, located at 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California, 90036.

Presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
