You'll have the opportunity to see critically acclaimed films and the work of independent and emerging filmmakers.

Film: "Get On Up"
Tate Taylor is one of the hottest emerging talents in Hollywood right now.
He is the epitome of the total 'Hollywood' package. Movie star good looks, an acclaimed writer, director and producer with a breakout Oscar nominated hit film under his belt, a new release that is already generating award buzz and a stream of film and television projects in the works. However, he's as far from a Hollywood cliché as you're likely to find.
Registrations are now open for the Fall KCET Cinema Series - Aero Theatre, Santa Monica.
