Jason Reitman guest-programs the New Beverly

Posted by · 5:37 pm · February 19th, 2010

Jason Reitman at the 2010 Golden Globe AwardsGranted, this is pretty LA-centric, but beginning tonight, “Up in the Air” director Jason Reitman will be guest-programming three days of screenings at the Quentin Tarantino-owned New Beverly theater.  Tonight’s double feature is “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” at 7:30 (also showing tomorrow at 3:20 and 7:30) and “Election” at 9:30 (also showing tomorrow at 5:25 and 9:30).

Sunday, February 21 brings “Shampoo” at 6:30 (also Monday at 7:30) and “Boogie Nights” at 8:45 (also Monday at 9:45).  I’ll probably check out the former, as, believe it or not, I’ve never seen it.

The festivities conclude Tuesday, February 23 with “Breaking Away” at 7:30 and “Bottle Rocket” at 9:45, the only screenings of each.  Again, I may go check out the former, because I’ve never seen it.

For more info, check out the New Beverly’s official website.  Meanwhile, for further reading, Anthony Breznican recently sat down with Reitman and father Ivan at USA Today.

    LOVE Boogie Nights and Bottle Rocket.

    I also haven’t seen/heard of the ones you mentioned.

    I like this line up. I can see where he’s been influenced by them with the exception of breaking away which i have yet to see.
    Kris – I love Shampoo and I bet you will too. I think Beatty understood this character the way Clooney got Ryan Bingham, or even more to my liking, Brad Pitt got Jesse James

    I wasn’t a fan of “Shampoo.” I find it overrated.
    “Breaking Away” is a lil schmaltzy but really entertaining and fun.

    I hated Shampoo the first time I saw it but it has really grown on me. I’m also a sucker for anything Warren Beatty and Julie Christie related.

    “Breaking Away” is really light and sort of frivolous, but it’s well written and breezy fun.

    Casey, you’re right. There’s much to compare between Beatty’s SHAMPOO performance and Clooney’s Bingham. Though I liked SHAMPOO better.

    BREAKING AWAY is one of my favorite movies ever. Wonderfully small-scaled, impeccably cast and performed, with possibly the most exciting climax ever to a sports movie, not to mention a wonderful screenplay by Steve Tesich. Eager to see what you thought of it.
