Lots of great romantic comedies, some not-so-comedies, but great nonetheless, on the big screen for you this weekend and through to Valentine’s Day by this fantastic institution.  They run at both the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, and the Aero Theater in Santa Monica.

Saturday, 7:30pm, “Gone with the Wind”, “His Girl Friday,” “It Happened One Night.”

Frankly, my dear, we do give a damn. Digital remaster!

Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, what all romantic comedies strive for in leading couples.

Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert. Capra's comedy masterpiece.

Tuesday, Valentine’s Day, 7:30, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “The Graduate.”

Everyone's favortie party girl/gold digger.

Are you trying to seduce us?

But I’d be remiss not to mention they’re showing “Citizen Kane,” tonight (!!!) along with “The Magnificent Ambersons.”  Film geeks get your Welles on.

They also have the awesome Amy Poehler speaking with equally awesome Jane Lynch, at the Aero theater, Sunday, February 12th.

Check the calendar for dates and times, and make sure you check which theater it’s at.


Like I always say, if you live in LA (and don’t have small children) you get to take advantage of all this!

As a footnote, if anyone knows anyone that works for the American Cinematheque, please tell them their website is a hot mess.  It’s so disjointed.  Why?  The mission statement, membership, calendar, etc. should be on ONE site.  Fix it!  Thanks.
