More than 12 years ago, Quentin Tarantino saved the New Beverly Cinema by buying it . It’s been 12 years since that purchase happened and QT hasn’t looked back.
In September of 2014, even more pleasant news, Tarantino announced that he would be taking over full programming duties for the New Beverly. Imagine that, double features, exclusively in 35mm (or 16mm, selected by Tarantino himself. Jen Yamato wrote that “the first double bill the director concocted at the New Bev was a double feature of Paul Mazursky films: Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969) and Blume in Love (1973)”.
Starring with the “Sterile Cuckoo” on July 1st and ending with “Evil Knievel” on July 23rd., here are the films screening this month, all leading up to the double-bills being put on halt for daily sceenings of Tarantino’s latest film “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.”
