Double Indemnity (1944) + The Lost Weekend (1945) [double feature]
Friday and Saturday, June 28-29, 2013

Two by Billy Wilder [double feature]

DOUBLE INDEMNITY
1944, USA, 107 minutes, 35mm, Universal (orig. Paramount)
Directed by Billy Wilder
Screenplay by Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler
Based on James M. Cain's novel
Starring Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck,
Edward G. Robinson, Porter Hall
Fri: 7:30 pm; Sat: 3:10 & 7:30 pm

"Few other directors have made so many films that were so taut, savvy, cynical and, in many different ways and tones, funny."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"With diamond-hard repartee by Wilder and Raymond Chandler (by way of James M Cain's novel) and ghoulish cinematography by the great John Seitz, this is the gold standard of '40s noir, straight down the line."
- Time Out

"The film is a brilliant collision of evil and the mundane, and one of the reasons viewers respond to it so well is that it makes the mundane seem a little sexier in the resulting debris."
- Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter

PLUS, on the same program:

Winner of 4 Academy Awards:
Best Picture, Director, Actor, Screenplay

THE LOST WEEKEND
1945, USA, 101 minutes, 35mm, Universal (orig. Paramount)
Directed by Billy Wilder
Screenplay by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder
Based on Charles R. Jackson's novel
Starring Ray Milland, Jane Wyman, Phillip Terry,
Howard Da Silva, Doris Dowling, Frank Faylen
Fri: 9:40 pm; Sat: 5:20 & 9:40 pm

"A landmark film in terms of Hollywood's treatment of adult subject matter as fair game."
- Austin Chronicle

"What makes the film so gripping is the brilliance with which Wilder uses John F Seitz's camerawork to range from an unvarnished portrait of New York brutally stripped of all glamour."
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out

"Taken as a treatise on addiction generally, it's remarkably sensitive and thoughtful."
- Dan Geary, Total Film

"While you watch it, it entirely holds you."
- James Agee, The Nation

Photo ID is required to claim your will call ticket(s).  Your name will be on a will call list at the box office.  No need to print your Brown Paper Tickets confirmation to claim your ticket(s), but do make sure to have your ID with you.  There is one single line for both ticket holders and those who need to purchase tickets (i.e., there is not a separate will call line).  

The box office and doors open about 30 minutes before the first film in the double feature and then re-open about 10 minutes before the second film for those who wish to only see the second film.

The New Beverly Cinema is located on the north side of Beverly Blvd., one block west of La Brea.

Plentiful unmetered street parking can generally be found on Formosa Ave. (the block between Beverly Blvd. and Oakwood) after 6 PM.  Read parking signs on all other streets carefully, as many others are restricted.
