Hey, LA Area AICN Readers! Pretty Groovy DIE HARD Screening Tonight At Cine-Space!

Two weeks back, I hosted a Thursday night screening at Cine-Space in Hollywood. It was for a small indie film called EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN, and it turned out to be a really cool event. I enjoyed the venue, as did my wife, and I started talking with the people who run the place. Seems like a pretty cool group of film fans, and we may be getting involved with a series of screenings there along with some other cool promotional partners like 97.1 FM’s Film Freak, Leo Quinones, and the New York Film Academy. They’re both involved in tonight’s screening of DIE HARD, which will include a pre-show Q&A with screenwriter Steven E. DeSouza. I’ve had many, many opportunities to chat with Steven, and I highly recommend you guys head down there for this. It’s a conversational atmosphere, like a small club, so with the right person, it could make for a really relaxed and interesting Q&A. All you need to do is call for a reservation, get there early for dinner or drinks, and the movie itself is no extra charge. Cinespace 323.817.FILM(3456) OR TO E-MAIL FOR RESERVATIONS: Stuart Satterfield **reservations must be confirmed Hopefully we’ll be able to announce some events here soon that will make you plan to keep your Thursday nights free. Come down tonight, check it out, and see DIE HARD on the big-screen again in prep for this summer's return of McClane. DIE HARD and pizza and booze... do I really have to twist your arm?

    That sounds great

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Just to be around a bunch of people who love Die Hard, having some nice food and watching it again on the big screen would be pretty damn cool, I think. What a shame I'm getting blown about like that bag in American Beauty here in windy England. Bollocks!

    Don't make me show you the napkin!

    What tha?

    by gideon9595

    I'm sorry. But I got as far as "I enjoyed the venue, as did my wife" And I couldn't go on. Could someone get this guy to frack up about his wife and life and stick to the damn task at hand and review. It is Ain't it Cool News. To many of us that means movies and TV. Not his fracking date to an event and what they thought. If he enjoyed it, fine. I don't care if his wife enjoyed it, or spent the night with PMS and cramps! Sheeesh this site is going down hill.

    Just rewatched it

    by BitterMan23

    my friend and I discovered his fiance had never seen it so we had to remedy. it had been a while, i forgot how funny the original is compared to the sequels (well, at least 3 tried). It's also an excellent example of why pan and scan is the devil: during the part where Al walks around the lobby, only in LBX can you see the guy waiting to plug him if he walked too far.

    Henchman Blog: Again, Why Amerika Is Weak...

    by Buzz Maverik

    ...Oh, come down to IMAX and see movie that you see 100,000,000 times before and own on BHS and laser dick and satellite cable with 69 sequels. But you get to talk to rewriter. "Hello, Kapitalist, what is it like to make money everyone else in Amerika has to sell drugs to each other to get?" In New World Order, when Boss Man is in charge, we weill see NEW MOVIES! Do you hear me? Movies we have never been seeing before! Only thing that could stop us is if Boss Man doesn't bargain on Bald One being in the wrong place at the right time...

    Greatest Action Flick Ever

    by Blanket-Man

    I saw it 5 times in theaters in '88; would love to see it on the big screen again. Maybe our Senator here in Bawlmer can show a quadruple feature of all the DH flicks when #4 opens. "What, do you think, I'm fuckin' STUPID, Hans?!?" Alan Rickman = greatest movie baddie ever.

    Just FYI, re: Cinespace

    by epitone

    My friend was there about a year ago and Cinespace refused to admit one the people in his group because he was wearing a turban. When he asked to speak to the manager, he was told that was management's policy. I haven't set foot in the place since I heard that and plan never to again.

    I saw this thing about a hundred times in 88.

    by blackmantis

    I worked at a movie theater at the time that showed it for, like, a year. Ah, the good old days. Watched it again recently and it's like a nuanced character drama compared to the shit that passes for an action film these days.
