I SMILE BACK explores the life of Laney (Sarah Silverman), an attractive, intelligent suburban wife and devoted mother of two adorable children. She has the perfect husband (Josh Charles), a pristine house, and a shiny SUV for carting the children to their next activity. However, just beneath the façade lie depression and disillusionment that send her careening into a secret world of reckless compulsion. Only very real danger will force her to face the painful root of her destructiveness and its crumbling effect on those she loves.

Interview with graffiti artist Maxx Moses

We sit down with graffiti artist Maxx Moses in a short, intimate interview about his journey to becoming a graffiti artist, the inspiration behind his work this year and the special mural he created for the Angelika Film Center at Carmel Mountain in San Diego, CA. Moses first worked with the Angelika Film Center back in 2013 when he created a mural in the art-house cinema’s Mosaic location in Fairfax, VA.

Acclaimed director Joe Wright (PRIDE & PREJUDICE, ATONEMENT) delivers a thrilling new take on J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic stories, PAN follows the tale of an orphan who is spirited away to magical Neverland. The family action-adventure stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (LES MISERABLES) as Blackbeard the pirate, Garrett Hedlund (INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) as Hook, Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, CAROL), and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter Pan.

The highly-anticipated opening night film at this year’s New York Film Festival, THE WALK is the true story of famous high-wire artist Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, INCEPTION) and his 1974 wire walk across the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY) uses innovative photorealistic techniques to craft one of this awards-season’s most thrilling contenders.

Oscar winner Julianne Moore stars alongside Oscar nominees Ellen Page, Steve Carell and Michael Shannon in this poignant love story fresh from its Toronto International Film Festival premiere. After a decorated New Jersey police office is diagnosed with cancer, she is determined to leave her pension to her domestic partner. This stirring drama shows how social change is brought about by empathy, courage, and love.

Acclaimed documentarian Davis Guggenheim (AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, WAITING FOR SUPERMAN) presents this intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban for advocating for girls’ education and severely wounded by a gunshot. HE NAMED ME MALALA is an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life, from her close relationship with her father to her impassioned speeches at the UN.

Critics are raving about 99 HOMES, with a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, this timely sensational thriller follows a charismatic and ruthless businessman (Oscar nominee Michael Shannon) making a killing by repossessing homes. After he evicts a single father trying to care for his mother (Andrew Garfield and Laura Dern), the father becomes so desperate to provide for his family that he goes to work for the very man who evicted him in the first place.

One of the most talked about horror-thrillers in decades, GOODNIGHT MOMMY is the clever and savagely disturbing debut from Austrian filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala. After their mother returns home from extensive cosmetic surgery, 9-year-old twin boys begin to doubt that this woman is really their mother. What ensues is a terrifying psychodrama, which blurs the lines between reality and paranoid fantasy.

A worldwide smash hit, Jules Dassin’s 1955 classic RIFIFI returns to the big screen for a limited time with this impressive new restoration. A legendary 30-minute sequence highlights the brilliant jewel heist at the center of this film, which earned blacklisted Hollywood exile Dassin Cannes’ Best Director prize and set the standard for screen robberies for decades to come.


October 10 through December 3 – Saturdays at 11 a.m. and Wednesdays at 7 p.m. – the Angelika will celebrate the genius of legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki with an exclusive film series.

Thursdays in October beginning October 15, the Angelika will present classics from the Master of Suspense at 7 p.m.

Celebrate the Master of Suspense!

Hitchcocktober returns to the Angelika! Join us Thursdays in October for a screening of one of Sir Alfred Hitchcock’s classics, back on the big screen (titles and dates vary by location – check your local listings!)

Among the films featured this year:

DIAL M FOR MURDER in 3D (1954)
Yes, 3D! Hitchcock’s 1954 classic was originally shot in 3D, but rarely seen that way by moviegoers. The film has been restored for gorgeous high-resolution 3D digital presentation. British tennis pro Ray Milland suspects that his wealthy wife Grace Kelly is fooling around with handsome American Robert Cummings. Milland blackmails a disgraced former army comrade into murdering Kelly and making it look like the work of a burglar. But Milland’s carefully mapped-out scheme does not take into account the notion that Kelly might fight back and kill her assailant.

The debate still rages as to whether Alfred Hitchcock’s 1956 remake of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH is superior to his own original 1934 version. This version features more stars, a lusher budget, and the plaintive music of Bernard Herrmann. American tourists James Stewart and Doris Day are witness to the street killing of a Frenchman they’ve recently befriended. Before breathing his last, the murder victim whispers a secret to Stewart. Stewart knows that a political assassination will occur during a concert at London’s Albert Hall, but his son has been kidnapped to keep him from telling the police.

Joseph Cotton star as Uncle Charlie, a calculating and charming killer who hides out in his relatives’ small hometown, in Alfred Hitchcock’s SHADOW OF A DOUBT. While hiding out he befriends his favorite niece and namesake, Young Charlie (Teresa Wright) – but she begins to suspect he may be the famed Merry Widow murderer. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues as the psychopathic killer plots the death of his young niece to protect his secret.

PSYCHO (1960)
Alfred Hitchcock’s landmark masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. When Marion Crane, spectacularly played by Janet Leigh, ends up at the Bates Motel after making off with $40,000 cash, there’s hardly a film fan alive who doesn’t know what happens next. First a private detective, then Marion’s sister, search for her as the horror and suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed.

MARNIE (1964)
One year after she appeared in Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller THE BIRDS, actress Tippi Hedren took on another Hitchcock role in this unusual psychological drama. Marnie Edgars is a scheming young woman who repeatedly finds employment as a secretary and then proceeds to rob her employers. Though she changes her disguise, her new boss (Sean Connery) recognizes her – but instead of reporting her to the police, he’s intrigued by her criminal behavior and certain events in her past.

Joseph Cotton star as Uncle Charlie, a calculating and charming killer who hides out in his relatives’ small hometown, in Alfred Hitchcock’s SHADOW OF A DOUBT. While hiding out he befriends his favorite niece and namesake, Young Charlie (Teresa Wright) – but she begins to suspect he may be the famed Merry Widow murderer. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues as the psychopathic killer plots the death of his young niece to protect his secret.

Angelika After Hours: THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991)

Director Jonathan Demme’s smart, taut thriller teeters on the edge between psychological study and all-out horror. In this multiple Oscar-winning thriller, Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy. In her investigation of a vicious murderer nicknamed Buffalo Bill, she interviews Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, in a chilling, Oscar-winning performance), a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath serving life in prison for various acts of murder and cannibalism. Lecter does indeed know something of Buffalo Bill, but his information comes with a price.

Two nights only! Join us Friday 8/28 & Saturday 8/29 @ 11:45PM for THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS back on the big screen.

THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL – Interview with Bel Powley & Marielle Heller

Bel Powley and filmmaker Marielle Heller stopped by our Texas locations in support of their new film THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL!

Blending live action with animation, filmmaker Marielle Heller’s funny and provocative adaptation of Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel is a nuanced tale of burgeoning sexuality and boundary testing. Like most teenage girls, Minnie is longing for love, acceptance, and a sense of purpose in the world. She begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig, THE SKELETON TWINS) boyfriend Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård, MELANCHOLIA) and takes command of her sexuality and creativity. Set in countercultural San Francisco, this intelligent feature debut was one of the breakout hits from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

In our interview, Gadi Elkon of chats with Bel and Marielle about the intimate sex scenes in the film, the power of a young woman owning her sexuality, the family involvement from Heller’s real family, and the fact that the film is shot in San Francisco.


THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL is now playing at the Angelika Mosaic, Dallas, and Plano.

Angelika After Hours: CARRIE (1976)

One of the teen horror genre’s true classics, filmmaker Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s first novel is a horrifying look at supernatural powers, high school cruelty, and teen angst. Sissy Spacek stars as a shy teenager who is the butt of practical jokes at her small-town high school. After her class mates taunt her about her horrified reaction to her totally unexpected first period, one of them takes pity on her and gets the class hunk to invite Carrie to the senior prom. Meanwhile, Carrie’s biggest bully is not as forgiving, and plans a trick to embarrass her in front of the whole school.

Two nights only! Join us Friday 7/31 & Saturday 8/1 @ 11:45PM for the original CARRIE back on the big screen.

KIDS – 20th Anniversary screenings / presented on 35mm film

One of the most controversial movies of the 1990s, KIDS returns to the Angelika Film Center 20 years after its premiere for two exclusive screenings presented in 35mm. In the early 1990’s, on the cusp of NYC’s mass gentrification, a group of disparate youths ventured outside their broken homes and cultivated a new style of skateboarding inspired by the city’s hardscrabble streets. Together, they found family and spawned a revolution. Scripted by Harmony Korine, this landmark film features breakout performances by Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson. Larry Clark’s startlingly raw, vérité portrait of urban adolescence was hailed by The New York Times as “a wake-up call to the world.”
