ANGELIKA FILM CENTER & CAFE EXPANDS WESTWARD
Angelika Film Center’s first West Coast Cinema opening in San Diego

SAN DIEGO (October 1, 2015) — Reading International, Inc. (NASDAQ:RDI) is proud to announce the opening on Friday, October 9 of the Angelika Film Center & Cafe, a state-of-the-art luxury cinema, located at Carmel Mountain Plaza in San Diego.

Dedicated to exhibiting quality films and events, the sleek and modern Angelika Film Center & Cafe is a unique venue for San Diego’s culturally rich community offering diverse programming and a creative menu of craft beverages and bites. The first Angelika to open on the West Coast is located along the I-15 corridor at Carmel Mountain Road in San Diego’s vibrant North County.

The Angelika will offer San Diego its signature mix of specialty programming, which includes independent and foreign films, the best from the major studios, along with a unique slate of classic movies and filmed presentations of global cultural events. Opening titles include PAN, THE WALK, FREEHELD, HE NAMED ME MALALA, 99 HOMES, GOODNIGHT MOMMY and RIFIFI.

A cultural institution in New York City since 1989, the original Angelika Film Center & Cafe is one of the most successful arthouses in North America, generating record box office grosses for Academy Award winners including BLUE JASMINE, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, BIRDMAN and THE ARTIST. For more than 10 years, devoted moviegoers have also enjoyed Angelikas in the Dallas area and more recently, in Fairfax, Va. and Washington, D.C.

Each of the 12 elegantly-appointed auditoria at the new Angelika feature full-recliner luxury seats in a stadium setting, pristine digital projection by Barco, the leader in digital cinema technology, Dolby 7.1 audio, and reserved seating for a leisurely cinematic experience. With state-of-the-art digital presentation capabilities and events specialists, the Angelika is an ideal venue for a range of meetings and events, from corporate presentations to private gatherings.

Fred Dagdagan, a Los Angeles-based designer of premier screening rooms for major Hollywood studios, designed the stylish cinema to feature an open lobby, a mezzanine lounge and a lush outdoor patio, hardwood floors, a striking three-tiered crystal chandelier accented in blue neon, and a dramatic illuminated rendering of the iconic Angelika logo. Larger-than-life images from classic films highlight each corridor, and the main lobby features an installation of posters of the top-five grossing films of each decade, designed by industry veteran John Sittig, Angelika’s Director of Projection & Sound. The upstairs lounge is adorned with a bold and colorful hand-painted mural by local graffiti artist Maxx Moses.

Veteran Food Network Executive Bruce Seidel of Hot Lemon Productions and Chef Santos Loo designed a menu comprised of craft beverages and bites, including Green Bean Fries with Sriracha Ketchup, Kale Grilled Cheese with Tomato Jam, and Potato Chip Crusted Chicken Tenders, that can be enjoyed while watching a movie and throughout the theater. The Angelika will also feature classic concessions with a twist like artisan popcorn and gourmet hot dogs. The Kimchi Dog with kimchi slaw, green onions, and crispy shallots is sure to become an audience favorite.

OPENING OCTOBER 9 AT THE ANGELIKA IN SAN DIEGO:

PAN
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 WALK
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.

FREEHELD
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.

HE NAMED ME MALALA
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.

99 HOMES
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.

GOODNIGHT MOMMY
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.

RIFIFI
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.

Celebrate the Master of Suspense!

September 28, 2015

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 MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1956)
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.

SHADOW OF A DOUBT (1943)
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.

SHADOW OF A DOUBT (1943)
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.

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

August 21, 2015

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 seligfilmnews.com 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.

DIOR AND I – Interview with Frédéric Tcheng

All movies start at 7:00PM / Tickets just $7 available online now at angelikafilmcenter.com.

 

2/5 – BRAVEHEART (1996 Best Picture winner)
Mel Gibson’s richly detailed saga is a tale of fierce combat, tender love, and the will to risk it all for freedom. In an emotionally charged performance, Gibson stars as William Wallace, a bold Scotsman who uses the steel of his sword and the fire of his intellect to rally his countrymen to liberation from the English occupation of Scotland. Mel Gibson came into his own as a director with BRAVEHEART, winning Academy Awards for both Best Director and Best Picture.

 

2/12 – AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (1952 Best Picture winner)
Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron sing and dance to the music of the Gershwins in this winner of 6 Academy Awards. When an ex-GI remains in Paris to pursue life as an artist, he is discovered by a wealthy patroness interested in more than his art. But Mulligan falls in love with a French shop girl who is engaged to his best friend. Highlights include Georges Guetary’s rendition of “Stairway to Paradise”; Oscar Levant’s fantasy of performing Gershwin’s “Concerto in F”; and the closing “American in Paris” ballet, in which Kelly and Caron dance before lavish backgrounds based on the works of famed French artists.

2/19 – THE GODFATHER (1973 Best Picture winner)
One of the best American films ever made, Francis Ford Coppola’s multi-generational crime saga is a touchstone of cinema: one of the most widely imitated, quoted, and lampooned movies of all time. Marlon Brando and Al Pacino star as Vito Corleone, head of a Mafia family in 1940s New York, and his youngest son Michael. The stellar cast also includes Robert Duvall, Abe Vigoda, James Caan, Diane Keaton, and Talia Shire. Adapted by Mario Puzo from his own acclaimed novel, THE GODFATHER was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and won for Best Picture, Best Actor (Marlon Brando), and Best Adapted Screenplay.

2/26 – GONE WITH THE WIND (1940 Best Picture winner)
Revisit Margaret Mitchell’s epic American classic, winner of 10 Academy Awards! On the eve of the American Civil War, beautiful and self-centered Scarlett O’Hara has everything she could want – except the handsome Ashley Wilkes. As war devastates the South, Scarlet finds a tenacity that carries her through all obstacles while still in pursuit of the man that got away. Sparks fly as the wily Rhett Butler comes in and out of her life. Only after Rhett walks out on her does Scarlett realize what she has lost. Starring Oscar winners Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Olivia de Havilland, Thomas Mitchell, and Oscar nominee Leslie Howard.
