Academy @ LACMA

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences continues its ongoing partnership with the Los Angeles County of Museum of Art with regular screenings in LACMA’s Bing Theater, including our Tuesday matinee series.

Each Friday night in September, we present a double feature celebrating the centennial of one of horror cinema’s most colorful and popular figures, producer-director William Castle, whose black-and-white chillers—and their even more inventive marketing gimmicks—thrilled a generation of filmgoers.

Oscar-winning animator John Canemaker joins us for a three-part event in one evening, which includes lectures paying tribute to animation greats Winsor McCay and Walt Disney as well as a screening of Disney’s classic Fantasia.

We present newly restored versions of rarely seen films on separate evenings—Colleen Moore’s silent romantic comedy, Why Be Good?, and Sergei Parajanov’s kaleidoscopic 1968 masterpiece The Color of Pomegranates (Sayat Nova).

The Academy’s George Stevens Lecture series on film directing includes back-to-back screenings of one of his earliest and rarest films, the rural drama Laddie, followed by a screening of Stevens's Oscar-winning classic A Place in the Sun, introduced by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Richard LaGravenese.

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.
