KCET TO LAUNCH CINEMA SERIES 16 ON MARCH 2 WITH ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, STARRING JIM CARREY, KATE WINSLET & ELIJAH WOOD
KCET has announced the line-up for Cinema Series 16, the popular film series that will start its spring run on Tuesday, March 2, highlighting a hand-picked selection of new motion pictures and a nightly special guest who will discuss the behind-the-scenes of the films production and take part in an audience Q&A session. Screenings take place at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, 5230 Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood.
The series, which runs Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. from March 2 to April 27 (except for Passover, April 6) kicks off with a screening of the much anticipated comedy Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet. Producer Steve Golin will be the evenings guest in an interview session hosted by Pete Hammond. On March 9, the series continues with the drama, The United States of Leland, starring Ryan Gosling, Don Cheadle and Kevin Spacey in the story of a young juvenile center detainee and the consequences of his violent crime upon himself, his family and his community.
The Lady Killers, screening March 16, starring Tom Hanks and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, is a remake of the classic British comedy in which a bungling gang of thieves attempts to pull a heist from the house they are renting. Believing that their elderly landlady may know about their plot, they make numerous attempts to kill her — with hilarious consequences.
The March 23 film, Dogville, starring Nicole Kidman and directed by Lars Von Trier (Breaking the Waves) is the story of a beautiful fugitive running for her life from the mob. The citizens of the small, backwater town agree to hide her but for a price.
The Alamo, screening March 30, stars Dennis Quaid and Billy Bob Thorton, among many others in the much anticipated action epic about the battle for the famous fort. Additional guests and the titles for April screenings will be announced at a later date.
The cost for the eight-part series is $130 per person, $240 per couple. KCET members enjoy a 10% discount and all proceeds go to benefit the stations activities.
