PRESENTED BY CINESPIA.
Location: Saban Theatre, 8440 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA, 90211.
In loving memory of beloved film critic Roger Ebert, Cinespia has partnered with The Cinefamily to host a screening of the Ebert-penned cult classic, Beyond The Valley of The Dolls, at the newly-restored 1930s Art Deco movie palace The Saban Theatre! Ebert’s passing in April reminded film fans everywhere of his prolific contributions to popular criticism, TV entertainment and film advocacy -- but no tribute would be complete without a salute to Ebert the screenwriter as well, so we’ve got for you a rare archival 35mm print of the landmark 1970 Russ Meyer camp-tastic carnival of carnal freakouts. Plus, guest of honor Chaz Ebert will present “Siskel & Ebert” memories and outtakes, ‘60s psych rockers The Strawberry Alarm Clock will reunite to perform live, Beyond bombshell Erica Gavin and the film’s groovy music team Stu Phillips and Igo Kantor will be in-person, and we’ll have DJs, booze and dancing. It’s not just a tribute, it’s a HAPPENING!
