Remembering Forrest J Ackerman on his birthday today. Born in Los Angeles in 1916, Forry was a life-long champion of the sci-fi, horror and fantasy genres as an art form. As a collector of memorabilia, he opened his home, the Ackermansions I & II to legions of fans and through his Famous Monsters Magazine is credited with encouraging generations of youngsters to grow up to work in the genre - Peter Jackson, John Landis, Spielberg and Stephen King among them! Forry came often to the American Cinematheque and in the early 2000's he purchased seat plaques at the Egyptian Theatre to honor many of the actors, directors and who influenced him as a child and throughout his life. In 2004, when Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson came to the Egyptian for a tribute, Forry presented him with a seat of his own at the theater. On Feb. 11, 2004 the American Cinematheque held a public tribute for Forry during his lifetime and when he passed away in 2008, every seat at the Egyptian was occupied for his memorial tribute. If you come to the 35mm The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy marathon on Nov. 30, imagine Peter Jackson as a kid in New Zealand reading Forry's Famous Monsters Magazine and dreaming of creating his own monster movies some day. You can also look for his seat along with Bela Lugosi's, Boris Karloff and many others. And when you hit up House of Pies for a Thanksgiving pie, you will be in Forrest Ackerman square, a city dedicated corner honoring Forry in front of his favorite restaurant. photos: American Cinematheque

On the big screen at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. And yes, there will be some breaks during the marathon in case you need to sustain yourself with a crust of lempas and some ent-draught.

From husband-wife filmmaking duo Frank and Eleanor Perry, LADYBUG LADYBUG follows a group of schoolchildren and staff who react to a nuclear attack alarm; unsure whether or not the threat is legitimate, the group makes their way to a bomb shelter and contemplate their possible destruction in this reminder of the fear that permeated life during the mid-20th century Cold War era. 16mm prints from the personal film collection of Joe Dante and Jon Davison.

WHITE BLOOD from Argentina comes to the Egyptian Theatre Hollywood on a double feature with HEROIC LOSERS on Nov 23 at 8:30pm. Pre-show reception at 7pm. Pictured here is Director Bárbara Sarasola-Day and her lead actress Eva De Dominici who plays a young drug mule whose boyfriend dies as they are crossing the Bolivia-Argentine border with a cocaine delivery. Under pressure from the traffickers, the woman must seek help from the father she never knew. Sarasola-Day says WHITE BLOOD (BLANCA SANGRE) differs from her previous film BELATED in that this film is a drug-thriller, but “the interest in dysfunctional familial relationships is there too.” She entered this territory to quench her “thirst for adventure.” Part of Argentina: New Cinema presented with @arg_clang Argentina New Cinema Los Angeles#femaledirector #femalefilmmaker #womeninfilm #womandirector #womenbehindthecamera #thriller #argentinecinema #cinemaofargentina #argentinefilm #argentina #barbarasarasoladay #evadedominici #argentinanewcinema @ Egyptian Theatre

FROM HERE TO CHINA

Los Angeles Premiere! Waves of Chinese immigrants to Argentina have brought with them an influx of Chinese-owned supermarkets in recent decades; filmmaker Federico Marcello’s father was a retailer whose business could not survive the increased competition. This low-budget mockumentary arises not from a sense of bitterness but of empathy, taking a light-hearted look at what happens when Facundo (Marcello) and a friend (Pablo Zapata) cross the ocean to open an Argentine market in China’s Fujian province.

Los Angeles Premiere! Ricardo Darín and son Chino team onscreen for the first time in this crowd-pleasing heist comedy, Argentina’s official Oscar submission for International Film. Set at the end of 2001, it centers on a group of townspeople who pool their money to set up an agricultural cooperative only to lose it all in the country’s banking crisis (the “corralito”).

EL CUENTO DE LAS COMADREJAS (THE WEASEL’S TALE)

Los Angeles Premiere! Juan José Campanella’s first live-action feature since Oscar winner THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES shows the writer-director to be as adept with comedy as he is with drama. When two fans show up at the mansion where an aging actress (Graciela Borges) resides with her retinue, their flattery masks their real intent - to acquire the property for real estate development. “Enjoyably over-the-top, well-played and in some passages an homage to those acid, preposterous Ealing comedies, WEASEL’S TALE’s script cleverly pits two kinds of actors against one another - traditional movie star vs entrepreneurial whiz kid - to see who comes out on top, and the result is often sharp, funny and never dull.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter.

4X4
A box office hit in Argentina, this wild tale of crime and punishment was inspired by actual events. Peter Lanzani stars as Ciro, a petty thief in Buenos Aires who breaks into a 4x4 truck to steal its stereo system and gets caught inside. When the car phone rings, he picks it up – only to be told by the vehicle’s owner that he has soundproofed and polarized the interior so that no one will know someone is trapped inside. Dady Brieva costars as Ciro’s tormentor in a claustrophobic thriller from the director and writer behind THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN.
