The New Beverly Cinema is fast becoming one of my favorite places in Los Angeles, and this is just one of the many reasons why. Admittedly, I’m not a big fan of film fests, but Edgar’s got this one packed with so many awesome movies, my head is gonna explode.
Now the top-secret list of special guests has been cracked open, spilling awesomeness all over the place.
Before you check the update, the Bev is showing a Woody Allen double feature this weekend, with Stardust Memories and The Purple Rose of Cairo. If you haven’t seen either of these movies, now is the perfect opportunity!
