LOCATION: The Ace Hotel, 929 S. Broadway, 90015. This event does not take place at the Silent Movie Theater location.
The Coen Brothers, Chris Rock, Dave Chapelle and Paul Thomas Anderson are all known to be big fans — Jane Fonda declared it a masterpiece on “The Tonight Show” in 1969 — De La Soul sampled it, the Beastie Boys rapped about it and Louis CK cites it as “the first film that inspired me as a filmmaker.” For the Sunday afternoon event, we share with you the film that made Robert Downey, Sr. famous. It’s his funniest and most irreverent work, and his crossover hit: Putney Swope. See this legendary cult comedy classic with a huge appreciative audience at the Ace Hotel’s gorgeous United Artists movie palace.
Putney Swope Dir. Robert Downey, Sr., 1969, digital presentation, 84 min.
