We are proud to announce that Cinespia is working with The Ace Hotel Downtown LA to present films in the gorgeous United Artists Theatre, a 1920s movie palace. Closed to the public for decades, join us as we marvel at it’s soaring gold ceiling, cathedral columns and towering lobby.
Our first event is the Los Angeles premiere of Under the Skin the new sci-fi thriller starring Scarlett Johanssen and directed by Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth). Surreal, sexy and downright terrifying, the film’s story is told obliquely, heightening the feeling of an other-wordly horror with a brilliant avant music score and spectacularly unusual special effects completing the atmosphere. Scarlett plays an alien visitor disguised in human skin preying on men in her most genuinely daring performance.
Director Jonathan Glazer will be in-person to discuss the making of this sci-fi masterpiece. Co-presented by Cinefamily. See the trailer here: http://vimeo.com/86430658
