(Los Angeles) Fresh on the heels of receiving a preliminary NC-17 rating, Sascha Baron Cohen’s “Bruno” is having an advance sneak peek at 7:30pm tonight at the New Beverly Cinema. Tickets are $7, cash only, no advance sales. First come first serve!
(while not confirmed, I heard a rumor that Bruno himself and/or the director may show up for a post film q&a).
The internationally shot mockumentary has at least a few scenes reportedly shot in Los Angeles, including footage of the gay title character crashing a Prop 8 rally last November (the protestors were unwitting participants in the filming), or his infiltrating the set of NBC’s “Medium” as an unruly extra (reportedly by claiming to be a cousin of the network’s president).
The New Beverly is at 7165 W. Beverly.
BTW, in case you missed it, my video tour of the New Beverly’s projection booth from Monday.
