Throughout the year, the American Cinematheque will spotlight a new generation of independent French filmmakers who've all made remarkable impressions at the most recent Cannes Film Festival, beginning with Yann Gonzalez, who will join us with his feature debut YOU AND THE NIGHT alongside Anthony Gonzalez of M83 who provided the score. A young couple invite a dream team to their place for an orgy - the Stud, the Star, the Slut and the Teen - and the partygoers end up baring their souls as well as their bodies.

Bears At The El Capitan

El Capitan Theatre

6838 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature's new True Life Adventure BEARS showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life's most important lessons. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold. The world outside is exciting—but risky—as the cubs' playful descent down the mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food—ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run—while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf pack. BEARS captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet's last great wildernesses—Alaska!
