Hot Tickets: Los Angeles

19 Dec

Here are this week’s hot tickets in the Los Angeles area. Check back every Monday at noon, PST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Tuesday, December 20 | BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974) & SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT (1984) (double feature): Normal holiday cinematic fare giving you a headache? The Grindhouse Film Festival and New Beverly Cinema have the perfect antidote: a double-feature of yuletide horror. You’re welcome.

Thursday, December 15 | Kinyarwanda: Kinyarwanda interweaves six different tales that together form one grand narrative that provides the most complex and real depiction yet presented of human resilience and life during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. With an amalgamation of characters, the film pays homage to many, using the voices of a few.

Saturday, December 24 | Battle Royale: Hailed as a cross between A Clockwork Orange and Lord of the Flies by The Guardian, Japanese ultraviolence flick Battle Royale starts its first-ever North American theatrical run at the Cinefamily. The late Kinji Fukasaku directs this ultraviolent, dystopian tale where, in a society overrun with teen violence, an entire 9th grade class gets shipped to a remote island.
