Date/Time/Contact , Friday, January 15, 2016 , 9:00 pm , (415) 454-5813.

Come check out this fun film event for the viewing of Moonwalkers the comedy!.

Based on a true conspiracy theory, this robust and ribald action-comedy is set in Swinging London of 1969 and starsRon Perlman as Kidman, an unstable CIA agent charged by the US to hire Stanley Kubrick to stage the moon landing, in case the real one doesn’t work out. Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) co-stars as Jonny, a struggling rock-band manager who discovers the plan, covets the cash and attempts to pass off his stoned roommate (Robert Sheehan) as the famous director. Brimming with rich and satirical period touches, this frenetic, sometimes psychedelic, comedy should amuse anyone who knows about the original moon landing…unless you’ve been living in a yellow submarine or something.

Where – Ticket Prices are Member – $7.00, Adult – $11.00, Child/Senior – $7.75, Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center, 1118 Fourth Street, San Rafael, CA 94901

Check out these Outstanding films – Mill Valley Film Festival

 

The Danish Girl

It’s back!  The wonderful Mill Valley Film Festival has already started but there are still tickets to be had.

The Mill Valley Film Festival is an annual, non-competitive film festival presented by the California Film Institute. Known as a filmmakers’ festival, the annual 11-day festival, based in Mill Valley, California, offers a non-competitive environment for exhibiting the best cinema from around the world. The 2015 Mill Valley Film Festival will take place October 13-18.

Founded in August 1978 by MVFF Director Mark Fishkin, the Festival has established an impressive track record for launching new films and the careers of new filmmakers and is well known for the quality of its programming. As the only prominent fall film festival in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Mill Valley Film Festival is also an important industry resource—both for its emphasis on films that have not yet secured US distribution and for fall launches and northern California Academy Awards campaigns.

The festival will open with screenings of Tom Hooper’s “The Danish Girl,” starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander, and Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight,” starring Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams. The festival will close a week later with “Suffragette,” starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep. The schedule also includes spotlights on such talents as Sarah Silverman, Brie Larson and Carey Mulligan, as well as tributes to Ian McKellen and Catherine Hardwicke.

Other films on the lineup include “Truth,” “Brooklyn,” “The Assassin,” “Carol,” “Beasts of No Nation” and the U.S. premiere of Justin Kurzel’s “Macbeth,” starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

For more information on the entire lineup, visit the Mill Valley Film Festival’s official website.

Have a wonderful time!

 

Italian Film Festival Starting this Weekend!

The Italian film festival is here ? Showing 8 different film’s from September 26 – November 7th.

Check out one film or buy tickets for all 8 showcase’s,  bring your friends and family for a good time out of the house.

Over its history, the Italian Film Festival’s formula has proven quite successful as sell-out audiences are normal. For many, attendance at the Festival is motivated by the chance to savor the Italian experience, as much as by the opportunity to see a great movie! As a result the Festival has made many friends over the years, including many generous sponsors, the Italian Cultural Institute, the Italian Consulate General in San Francisco, and hundreds of loyal fans

Comedy in the Plaza

Depot Plaza, Mill Valley, is home to lots of great events, including one this coming Wednesday evening. Comedy in the Plaza is in its 9th year, and is a free, fun event for the teenage to adult crowd. Local favorite comedian Mark Pitta hosts the evening program which gets started at 6:30.

Three other comedians with some excellent credentials will perform: Dana Gould, “Rick” Overton, & Christine Pazsitzky.

You must bring your own folding chair, and get there early to get a good spot (I recommend 6:00). It’s a really popular event, so the early arrival time will also help you find street parking, which can be quite challenging around dinner time in downtown Mill Valley.

Where: Depot Plaza, Mill Valley (map)

When: Wednesday, June 27th, 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 (approximately)

357. A Christmas Carol – 142 Throckmorton

‘Tis the season for classic Christmas fare, which includes a diet of Dickens. For an entertaining production of the timeless message of the truly important aspects of the Christmas season and life itself, namely truth, kindness and heart, come down tonight, tomorrow afternoon or next week for the Willo Hausman directed “A Christmas Carol”. “What better way to impart (these) lessons than with the spooky apparitions, intense imagery, haunting realizations, rich dialog and in the end, utter spectacular joy” of this tale.

The 142 Throckmorton is just a block off of the bustling downtown heart of Mill Valley, at the street location of its name. It’s an intimate venue, with all seats having excellent proximity to the stage. Free street parking is available on the blocks surrounding the theatre.

177. Comedy in the Plaza

Depot Plaza, Mill Valley, is home to lots of great events, including one this coming Wednesday evening. Comedy in the Plaza is in its 8th year, and is a free, fun event for the teenage to adult crowd. Local favorite comedian Mark Pitta hosts the evening program which gets started at 6:30.

Three other comedians with some excellent credentials will perform: Hal Sparks, J. Fugelsang, and there’s some confusion about the third. Some of the promotional material lists Charlyne Yi, but on the website it says Myq Kaplan. I think the website is more current, but I’m going to confirm it and post it tomorrow. Either way, it’s going to be a very funny show. And we can all use funny right now!

You must bring your own folding chair, and get there early to get a good spot (I recommend 6:00).  It’s a really popular event, so the early arrival time will also help you find street parking, which can be quite challenging around dinner time in downtown Mill Valley.
