Advance tickets are no longer available for this event.
- A limited number of tickets will be available at the door two hours before the published start time of the event for Film Independent, LACMA Film Club, and The New York Times Film Club members.
For the final Live Read of the 2015-2016 season, series creator Jason Reitman is back to bring the event—in which he selects actors to recreate a live reading of a classic film project—to a close. Reitman—the originator of the much imitated but never duplicated concept whose films include Thank You for Smoking and Up in the Air—will assemble a top-flight cast of performers and a beloved movie title, both of which will be announced to the public shortly before the night of the Read—as is the Live Read custom, because his track record guarantees a spectacular evening. And also, because the surprise is a big part of the fun.
Followed by a reception hosted by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Live Read Lead Sponsor: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association
