Exhibition Walk-through: Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:00pm

Architects Amy Murphy and Michael Maltzan talk about their installation design for Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s.  Inspired by the dramatic uses of space in films of the period, Murphy and Maltzan designed an environment that would allow visitors to experience the essence of the works on view without replicating their aesthetic. Focusing on the interplay of dark and light, inside and outside, space and form, and rupture and unity, their design captures the cinematic relationships between art, film, and design.

alt-J

Greek Theatre

Los Angeles, CA 90027

7:30pm

Like their band name, the multi-faceted sound of British indie rockers Alt-J (∆) requires a bit of explaining. The name derives from the combination of keys that results in a delta sign (∆) on Mac computers; the sound – a combination of folk-pop, skittering polyrhythms, and soaring falsetto harmonies – results in happy critics and even happier listeners.  The quartet formed in 2007 in a Leeds Metropolitan University dorm room, and the constraints of recording demos in a quiet study environment heavily influenced their hushed, intricate approach to indie rock. Their 2012 debut An Awesome Wave received the Mercury Prize, Britain’s most prestigious music award, and launched the band to indie stardom with singles “Breezeblocks” and “Fitzpleasure.” Alt-J are on tour in 2013, and ticket buyers can be sure that no matter how big the venue, the band will deliver the intimate live concert they’ve become known for.

Free Members-Only Screening: Birdman

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

(OCT. 20) Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s newest film is an energetic, propulsive comic melodrama that follows the days and nights of a fading superstar actor Riggan (Michael Keaton), who labors to make an impact by starring in and producing a major Broadway show. Riggan’s biggest success, increasingly receding into the distant past, was his portrayal of the superhero, Birdman, decades earlier. The specter of the superhero looms larger as the play rocks through speed bumps, potholes, and other catastrophes on its way to opening night. The full title is Birdman, or the Unexpected Virtues of Ignorance. The scenario, cowritten by Iñárritu (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel, and Biutiful) draws full-contact performances from the cast, who rise to the challenge. The ensemble includes Edward Norton as Riggan’s troublesome but talented costar, Emma Stone as his depressed and depressive daughter, and Zach Gallifianakis as his hand-wringing producer. Birdman is a tour de force piece of filmmaking from Iñárritu and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, for which he won the Oscar).
