American Cinematheque Will Reopen Aero in June and Program Films at Los Feliz 3 Theatre
The American Cinematheque announced that the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica will reopen on June 10.
The theater will celebrate its reopening with a special advance screening of Jon M. Chu’s movie adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical “In The Heights” on June 10, followed by a showing of Edgar Wright’s documentary “The Sparks Brothers” on June 14. Throughout the rest of the month, the Aero will host special screenings of 70mm prints of “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Vertigo,” “Lawrence of Arabia,” “Tenet” and “The Master.”
Additionally, while the Egyptian Theatre remains closed for renovation until late 2022, the American Cinematheque has partnered with the Los Feliz 3 Theatre to showcase films, Q&As and special events seven days a week beginning late July. In line with the American Cinematheque’s ongoing programming, the Los Feliz 3 has installed reel-to-reel 35mm projectors.
The American Cinematheque will also sell 25 numbered chairs from the Egyptian Theatre that will come with a certificate of authenticity, as well as a limited number of specially designed lucite-encased pieces of the theater’s screen, signed by various filmmakers.
“After over a year away from our beloved cinemas, the American Cinematheque is thrilled to welcome its members and film lovers back to the Aero, and we are so excited to offer great screenings and programming through our new location in Los Feliz,” said American Cinematheque executive director Ken Scherer. “It has been a challenging year, but we are committed now more than ever to celebrating the magic of the movies and encourage everyone to enjoy our great line-up of events coming up this summer.”
