Robert Towne Retrospective

4:00pm

Join us for a three-day retrospective of the work of Academy Awardwinning screenwriter Robert Towne. A key figure of the New Hollywood wave of filmmaking, Towne wrote the Oscar-winning screenplay for what is perhaps the most iconic Los Angeles film of all time: Chinatown (1974). During the same era, he wrote several other classic films, including The Last Detail, Shampoo, and Greystroke: The Legend of Tarzan, all of which earned him Oscar nominations. He also doubled as writer and director on films including Personal Best and Tequila Sunrise. Over a career spanning Los Angeles films, action films, TV, and much more, Townes numerous other credits include Mission: Impossible I and II, Days of Thunder, The Firm, and, most recently, Mad Men. Screenings of Chinatown, The Last Detail, Shampoo, Days of Thunder, The Firm, Mission: Impossible, and others will be complemented by in-person conversations with Towne about the variety and longevity of his career. Townes friends and collaborators will also reflect on the vast and varied oeuvre of this Hollywood great.
