Screening Room

December 06, 2007|Susan King

There probably won't be any snakes in the theater, but Samuel L. Jackson (pictured) is scheduled to show up tonight at the Aero in Santa Monica for a double bill of his recent films, "Resurrecting the Champ" and "Black Snake Moan." And sticking with the celebrity-appearance theme, Christian Bale will be on hand Saturday for a quartet of his own films: "American Psycho," "Batman Returns," "I'm Not There" and "3:10 to Yuma." . . . The Egyptian Theatre is offering a memorial tribute Sunday to director Bob Clark, who was killed with his son in April in a car crash, with a free matinee screening of his beloved 1983 holiday favorite, "A Christmas Story." After the screening is a discussion with actor Zack Ward and other cast and crew members. And on Tuesday, the Egyptian screens Leslie Iwerks' new documentary, "The Pixar Story," which looks at animation innovators John Lasseter, Ed Catmull and Steve Jobs (www.american cinematheque.com). . . . Two terrific noir films starring Gene Tierney -- 1945's Technicolor thriller "Leave Her to Heaven," for which she received her only Oscar nomination, and 1949's surreal "Whirlpool" -- will unspool Friday at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art ( www.lacma.org).
