Those of you in L.A. already know how cool the New Beverly Cinema is thanks to their ongoing series of badass double bills. But come December their badassness will be kicking up a notch thanks to some help from across the pond.
Specifically Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead genius/director Edgar Wright, who will be programming a whole series of his favorite films for cinema fans to enjoy, complete with special guests and appearances by Wright in the flesh.
The program is called, appropriately enough, The Wright Stuff, and will include films like Brian DePalma’s bizarre rock opera Phantom of the Paradise, John Landis’ classic An American Werewolf in London, the sci-fi head trip Flash Gordon and a helluva lot more.
You can get all the details, along with comments from Wright, at the latest blog posting on New Beverly’s MySpace page. And if you’re planning on going and you happen to meet Mr. Wright (pun intended), make sure you tell him Dread Central loves him!
Program your favorite films for the Dread Central forums!
