Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster (2021)

“Drawing from many interviews including Guillermo Del Toro, John Landis, Roger Corman, Sara Karloff, Peter Bogdanovich, Christopher Plummer, Stefanie Powers, Lee Grant, Sir Christopher Frayling, Kevin Brownlow and never released audio of Karloff himself, “Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster” takes us to the heart of the man, with a gripping, intimate portrait of Karloff and the genre he helped define.”

Possession (1981)

New 4K Restoration/

Banned upon its original release in 1981, Andrzej Żuławski’s stunningly choreographed nightmare of a marriage unraveling is an experience unlike any other. Professional spy Mark (Sam Neill) returns to his West Berlin home to find his wife Anna (Isabelle Adjani, in a role that earned her Best Actress at Cannes) insistent on a divorce. As Anna’s frenzied behavior becomes ever more alarming, Mark discovers a truth far more sinister than his wildest suspicions. With its pulsating score, visceral imagery, and some of the most haunting performances ever captured on screen, Possession is cinematic delirium at its most intoxicating.

El Planeta (2021)

“Amidst the devastation of post-crisis Spain, mother and daughter bluff and grift to keep up the lifestyle they think they deserve, bonding over common tragedy and an impending eviction.”

Ageless Love (2021)

The White Line (2020)

“In 1963, three years after a violent uprising that shook South West Africa. It is a story of hope born from love grown in a forbidding time. It is a period story set in 1963; three years after the Old Location uprising that shook South West Africa. A white police officer falls in love with a black maid, their love for each other grows over time through the letters they write each other. Their love endures many obstacles, one being the color of their skin.”

Azor (2021)

A remarkably assured debut from Swiss director Andreas Fontana, AZOR invites us into the alluring world of the ultra-wealthy in late 1970s Argentina. With the country in the clutches of a military dictatorship, political violence is always simmering just under the surface. Atmospheric and slyly seductive, this sophisticated political thriller teems with exquisite scenery and ominous conversation.
Set in Buenos Aires, the film follows private banker Yvan as he arrives from Geneva with his wife Ines to replace a mysteriously missing colleague and placate their moneyed clientele. Moving through the smoke-filled lounges and lush gardens of a society under intense surveillance, he finds himself untangling a sinister web of colonialism, high finance, and a nation’s “Dirty War.”
A highlight from this year’s Berlinale and New Directors/New Films, AZOR evocatively depicts the uneasy interplay between wealth and power. Co-written by Argentinian filmmaker Mariano Llinás, this is a riveting look at international intrigue worthy of John le Carré or Graham Greene.

Wife Of A Spy (2020)

“A Japanese merchant who leaves his wife behind in order to travel to Manchuria, where he witnesses an act of barbarism. His subsequent actions cause misunderstanding, jealousy and legal problems for his wife.”

Labyrinth of Cinema (2019)

Friday, October 29th/

The late Nobuhiko Obayashi is one of the most unique and passionate filmmakers of all time. He’s most well known in the United States for Hausu, and Labyrinth of Cinema is a masterpiece exemplifying his entire amazing career. Obayashi uses the history of Japanese cinema to explore Japan’s history of war. The film is emotion at its purest, also acting semi-autobiographical for Obayashi, showing his relationship to film during Japan’s political and cinematic growth. Obayashi injects such raw love, passion, anger, humor, and joy in this film. Labyrinth of Cinema is a triumphant curtain call for Nobuhiko Obayashi’s legacy.

PRESS ABOUT US, THANK YOU

“…Lumiere will compete to show the kind of elevated, critically supported indie, international and documentary films that can bring a theater both cachet and those coveted specialized audiences. And if a buzzier new movie can premiere exclusively at the Music Hall, as was recently the case with the highly praised documentary “Chinese Portrait,” so much the better.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

Beverly Hills Courier

“Los Angeles film exhibition 2020 is off to a roaring start with the reincarnation of the Laemmle Music Hall into Lumiere Cinema at the Music Hall,” Bob Hunter, director of exhibition for “Heimat” and “Cordillera” distributor Icarus Films, wrote in an emailed statement. “It’s a welcome addition to L.A.’s arthouse landscape and sure to become an essential destination for lovers of challenging, adventurous cinema. Working with Luis, Peter, and Lauren has been a pleasure. Their passion for independent film and commitment to the theatrical experience are infectious.” – Bob Strauss, Daily News
