The Wright Stuff Film Festival – Updated!!

http://blogging.la/archives/images/2007/11/l_926cd2194f9c56b75b87e59aed731e04-thumb.jpgThe 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!

  1. I love the Purple Rose of Cairo! It’s one of my favorite flicks. Thanks for this post; I think I’ll try to catch the showing this weekend.

  2. Yeah, the New Beverly is major wonderful. My favorite theatre in LA. I was so worried they weren’t going to make it after Sherman passed away, but it seems like they are going strong. God bless that place.

  3. Cutter…I’m still mad atcha for posting about that secret bar. I’ve wracked my brain. I googled many things. I’ve sat in silence waiting for the answer to come to me. I’ve looked thru pants pockets in hopes of finding a credit card receipt that I just didn’t recall.

    I’m so mad atcha for this. Just email me the damn bar huh? If I even leave the house and go it will be a miracle…

    Cutter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
