LA Area AICN Readers... What Are You Doing Thursday Night? Come Out To Cine-Space With Moriarty!!

This is one of those weeks. I haven’t had five free minutes to myself, and it’s only going to get worse in the next few days. I’m on my way out to see an IMAX screening of 300 in a few hours. Tomorrow night’s a double-feature of Italian Crime Films at the Grindhouse Festival at the New Beverly. And then Thursday, I’m going to be at Cine-Space, hosting a special screening of EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN starting at 7:30.

Douglas Coupland is one of those authors who blew up with an initial title, but he hasn’t really kept that same level of hype over the years. That’s a good thing, I think, because instead of chasing hype with each new title, he just focused on becoming a better and better writer. ELEANOR RIGBY from a few years ago is one of the best books I’ve read about loneliness. Coupland has done a great job of aging with his audience, growing up as a writer as they’ve grown up as readers, and with EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN, he’s finally written an original screenplay, taking a new challenge at a time when a lot of writers would be playing it safe. The film played the Toronto Film Festival last year and got some great reviews from outlets like VARIETY, but I haven’t had a chance to see it yet. I’ll be doing a Q&A with whoever shows up from the film (guests aren’t completely confirmed yet, but chances are you’ll see the very funny Paulo Costanzo and the stunning Steph Song if you show up), and as is the case with all Cine-Space films on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, you’ll be able to get dinner with your movie. This may turn out to be the first of many screenings that AICN co-hosts with Cine-Space, so come on down and check out the film. Right now, the official Cine-Space site doesn’t have the calendar updated, but rest assured... I’ll be there, and so will the film. If you show up, please feel free to say hello. If you're not able to make it, then EVERYTHING GOES GREEN will be playing the SXSW festival on March 10th, and then it'll start rolling out in limited release in April. I’ve got three reviews going up later tonight, and tomorrow, I think I’ll have a very special new feature ready to share with you. For now, I’ve gotta run so I can make it to the Bridge. Thanks to CHUD, who hosted the exclusive premiere of the one-sheet above in this article.

    Sort Of...

    by drew mcweeny

    At Cine-Space, you pay for your food and drinks. The movie comes at no extra cost. So it's really up to you what you end up spending, Comedian.

    this is why I hate living in Kansas, we miss out on all sorts of cool things like this. Enjoy everyone and have a drink or two for me (Dt. Pepsi and rum was my usual drink once upon a time, right after I read American Pycho)

    Georges... I'll be doing some coverage, and I've got another reader's reaction to the opening night of the fest that I'll be posting in just a little while.

    He's like AC/DC

    by Chindogu

    Coupland's a great writer, even if he does seem to write the same novel over and over again. I just want to know when the "Microserfs" movie is going to get made. The first time I read that novel it had "Soon to be a Major Motion Picture" written on the cover. That was 8 years ago.

    Great. I'll Stick A Cork In It

    by georges garvaren

    till you're done. Hearing about these movies is likely the only way we'll know anything about them since most don't live in the L.A. area. This really needs to be a travilling festival for all us perverts around the world to enjoy.

    I'm here in the swamps of New Jersey and can't make it. It sounds like a blast though.

    It's "CineSpace" (one word)

    by Jeff_Fries

    The first time I went to Channel 101 at Cinespace, I called ahead and they told me I had to reserve a table and order a meal. I did and I ended up seated by my lone self in a booth and was unable to get away with spending less than $15 on food and drinks. In the C101 screenings I've been to since then, I just show up, pay for my drinks at the bar, and find some wall to lean against for the length of the show (like most people). Is standing around allowed for a full-length movie screening? And if you want to be seated, do you need to make a reservation or can they seat you when you get there?

    So Funny...

    by LA_Katie347

    Got an email about this today!!! Anyone know how to get on the list? I definitely want to be there now - sounds really cool.

    Never Been There...

    by topaz4206

    But it looks way too Bougie for me, and the menu is Vegan-mean.<br><br>All I've read from him is Microserfs, which was o.k. No need to make that one into a movie -- the best adaptation of it still wouldn't touch Office Space.

    see a movie with Moriarty, but I'm nobody..

    by Amy Chasing

    he'll dis me instead of saying something nice when I die (and you'd thought we'd forgotten about Anna Nicole Smith). <P> Sorry, that was tasteless. Don't know what came over me there. Ain't I a stinka. ;) <P> Otherwise, what's the deal with the Pepsi ads on this site? Is AICN owned by Pepsico now or something (we all know Pepsi & Coke are owned by the same people - the Illuminati. search your thirst, you know it to be true). <P> As for the Oscar animation in the corner - is that going to last as long as the New Years one? oops, I had to ask, so it probably will now. :P

    Machine Gun McCain

    by RJ MacReady

    The Mack and The Chinese Mack kept a goofy nolstagic grin plastered on my face. I can't wait to see the rest of the films in the Grindhouse-fest.

    by s0nicdeathmonkey

    "Everything Goes Green"

    by JackRabbitSlim

    The similiarity in title to New Order's "Everythings gone green" is surely a coincidence.
