Julia Marchese has been employee at the New Beverly Cinema for quite some time and she wants us to experience her love for the theater in the next best thing to going there, a documentary about this important revival house cinema. I beg all our YBMW readers to watch Julia’s Kickstarter video and please donate to what could be a truly great documentary with your help.
In her description on kickstarter Julia says “Several directors who have previously programmed at the New Beverly will be interviewed for the film. Interviews slated so far (schedule permitting) include Kevin Smith (Clerks), Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), Joe Carnahan (The Grey), Rian Johnson (Brick), Joe Dante (Gremlins), Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator), Patton Oswalt (Young Adult), Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go), Tom Holland (Fright Night), John Landis (The Blues Brothers), Fred Dekker (Monster Squad) and Allison Anders (Gas Food Lodging) as well as a few secrets….”
Seriously if that doesn’t give you a cinephile chubby then you can suck donkey farts. Please check out this killer project on Kickstarter and help make this killer documentary a reality.
I’ve only been in Los Angeles for around four years and The New Beverly Cinema was the first place I went to see a movie out here, it was a killer double bill of ‘Night of the Creeps’ and ‘Monster Squad’. If you haven’t seen ‘Monster Squad’ in the theater you should it plays so well on the big screen. Since then I’ve been back many times for many screenings and even got to meet Steven DeSouza, writer of ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Commando’, who came with his family to see ‘Commando’ on the big screen because he hadn’t since it’s release. Random awesome can happen there at anytime and it’s truly a special place that deserves a great documentary. I know I’m idiot rambling but seriously check out the pitch, help this badass project get goings, and tell’em YBMW sent ya!
