On Tuesday, July 14, the Aero Theatre hosted a special screening of the timeless 1960 Western film, "The Magnificent Seven", which features a stellar cast including: Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, and James Coburn, and is produced by legendary Academy Award winning producer Walter Mirisch.
The series continues with the French comedy-drama, Samba, starring Omar Sy ("The Untouchables", "Jurassic World") and Charlotte Gainsbourg ("Nymphomanic: I & II", "Melancholia").
Roadside Attractions' "Mr. Holmes" played to a full house of movie enthusiasts at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica on Tuesday, July 7, 2015.
In honor of our gracious sponsor, The James and Paula Coburn Foundation, the KCET Cinema Series proudly presents the classic 1960 Western, "The Magnificent Seven" for our annual James Coburn film night.
"The End of the Tour" is a biographical drama of the five-day interview between "Rolling Stone" reporter and novelist David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg, "The Social Network") and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall").
The KCET Cinema Series is pleased to include Mr. Holmes, a crime drama from Roadside Attractions, in its summer lineup of films at the Aero Theatre.
A definite evening to remember with actor/director Alan Rickman, who was on hand for the screening of his current film "A Little Chaos", which marks his second collaboration with the film's star Kate Winslet, since their 1995 film Sense and Sensibility.
The summer KCET Cinema Series continues with the biographical film 'The End of the Tour' from award-winning director James Ponsoldt who will join series' host Pete Hammond for the in-depth post-screening Q&A.
We were pleased to screen the heartwarming documentary, "Batkid Begins", a film that explores and reveals the power of social media and the impact of an event that goes unintentionally viral.
Included in the summer lineup of films featured at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica is Focus Features' highly anticipated film, "A Little Chaos" starring: Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Stanley Tucci.
