Curse of the Demon screenings

  • Posted by: Steve Biodrowski
  • Event Date & Time: August 1 & 2
  • Location: New Beverly Cinema 7165 Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles

I don't know what's up with the New Beverly's August schedule. Here it is July 31, and their website has yet to post the complete listing of screenings for August; there is only a listing for Friday and Saturday of two black-and-white films from the '50s, the horror classic CURSE OF THE DEMON on a double bill with the film noir thriller THE LINE UP.

This is a slightly odd pairing but should be interesting. CURSE is considered one of the great horror films because of its serious approach, although many critics fault it for destroying the carefully wrought ambiguity by actually showing the titular demon. (Predating X-FILES by decades, the story presents a mystery that might either be supernatural or psychological in nature; how the characters interpret it depends on their point of view.)

Anyway, as long as the New Beverly keeps up doling out the screening info one block at a time, I cannot update the Calendar section. That's the bad news.

The good news is that their website offers RSS feeds of their screening info, so I have pasted that into our listing for the New Beverly on our Art House Theatres page. So you can always keep up-to-date on what's happening there.

Now, if only other theatres would start offering similar service...
