Mondo Diablo @ the New Beverly!
The righteous revivals continue at the New Beverly Cinema starting tonight, with another guest-curator series; July's celebrity programmer is Academy Award-winning screenwriter, EW columnist and leopard-print luvvah Diablo Cody, who serves up a varied cross-section of flickage for the next two weeks. Cody will be on hand with guests for Q&A sessions and introductions as time permits.
Tonight's double bill is a father and son two-fer, with Cody's Juno collaborator Jason Reitman's Thank You For Smoking (2005) followed by his dad Ivan's Stripes (1981). Both Reitmans will be on hand for the Q&A.
