PLEASE NOTE THIS IS AN ENCORE SCREENING BECAUSE WE SOLD OUT THE FIRST SCREENING.
Tonight, one of the master's final movies. And one of his most haunting, personal, beautiful.
Only a genius hard working moviemaker like Akira Kurosawa could find a way to make a movie of 8 of his most vivid dreams from his life from childhood through old age and make it fascinating/universal for everyone else.
The movie is essentially 8 short films through a "Kurosawa" like character unifies all of them as we see Kurosawa's most vivid young dream (chancing upon a fox wedding in the forest) through to his middle age dreams (horrific nightmares of nuclear holocaust and demons) to one of his final dreams, amazingly hopeful for a future where people come back together in community.
You also get Martin Scorsese playing Vincent Van Gogh (!!) and some of Kurosawa's most visually hallucinatory imagery from his late period career.
Made when the master was 79-80 years old (!!), this is one of the most beautiful, unsettling, yet serene of late great works.
Come join us and watch it on 35mm!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR OUR IN-DOOR THEATER SCREENINGS
We can offer refunds up to 24 hours before showtime. Please request a refund through Eventbrite and we will process ASAP. After that, no refunds. Sorry.
However if something last minute comes up and you can’t make the screening, for whatever reason, just write us at: [email protected] and we’ll offer you complimentary tickets to a future screening.
WHY ARE THE TICKET PRICES HIGHER THAN NORMAL?
In order for us to re-open, maintain health protocols , and screen movies on 35MM, we need to temporarily raise our ticket prices. We apologize.
However, if you could look at this as partially helping the Secret Movie Club Theater re-open, make the improvements as we go to turn this into the amazing movie watching, movie making center we know it can be, we would be eternally grateful.
We should be able to lower our ticket prices soon as we are able to increase capacity and lower restrictions.
If you could look at this as all of us being in this together, we WILL remember your kindness.
HELPFUL SECRET MOVIE CLUB (1917 Bay Street, 2nd Floor, LA, CA 90021) THEATER PARKING TIPS:
We recommend that you park just outside our theater. Remember our theater is actually in a beautiful street art alleyway in the back of the 1917 Bay Street building. You get to our entrance by taking a right on Wilson, then a right behind the building. We are the first set of black steps on the right after the big gate.
We will have a staff member on duty to monitor all cars parked in the street-art alleyway at our entrance.
There is also a parking lot at the corner of Mateo and Violet Street, just 2 blocks from our theater, which costs $7 per car.
HOW WILL OUR STAFF MAKE SURE THE THEATER IS AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE:
We will have staff in the theater at all times who make sure everyone is wearing masks and obeying protocols. We will have signage at entrance, markings at concessions, restrooms, etc so folks keep 6 ft distance at all times.
Anyone not observing safe protocols will kindly be asked to leave. On top of this, we’ll be making announcements at the head of each screening to make sure everyone understands the rules & regs!
