Serving over 30,000 people annually, Film Independent at LACMA is a year-round film series featuring over sixty screenings and events.
Presented in the historic Bing Theater at LACMA with a capacity of 600, the series includes weekly previews or screenings of feature-length narrative and documentary films, as well as episodic series, with talent on hand for lively Q&A sessions. Now in his fifth year as Curator of Film Independent at LACMA, Elvis Mitchell programs a diverse slate of film and television weekly, bringing visual media to the forefront of the broader artistic community.
As a part of the Film Independent at LACMA program, Jason Reitman programs up to five coveted Live Read events per year. Live Reads are classic screenplays recast with Hollywood A-list actors and performed as once-in-a-lifetime audience experiences that can only be seen LIVE—no videos or performance record exists beyond that single performance. Live Reads typically sell out in mere minutes before the cast is even announced! The cast of each Live Read is announced via Twitter the day of the event, adding to a sense of excitement and anticipation.
Live Read titles and performers in Los Angeles have included: Ghostbusters (starring Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Rainn Wilson), Goodfellas (starring Joe Manganiello), The Princess Bride (starring Mindy Kaling, Paul Rudd, Cary Elwes, Rob Reiner) and Reservoir Dogs with an all African-American cast (Laurence Fishburne, Cuba Gooding Jr., Anthony Mackie, Terrence Howard, Common).
