Silencio (2021)

“Sara Garcia is a young screenwriter and as she finishes her first script, it opens doors to memories she hid from herself leading to panic attacks. On top of trying to have her script produced and an toxic relationship, Sara has to deal with panic disorder in silence.”

Spencer (2021)

“The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be profoundly different. SPENCER is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days.”

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn (2021)

“Emi (Katia Pascariu), a high school teacher, finds her career and reputation under threat after a personal sex tape she filmed with her husband is leaked on the Internet. Forced to meet the parents demanding her dismissal at an emergency community meeting, Emi refuses to surrender to their pressure. Winner of the Golden Bear at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival, this Romanian pandemic-era satire widens its focus from the bustling streets of Bucharest, where Emi navigates countless slice-of-life mini-dramas and judging eyes, to a jarring essay-like montage recounting Romania’s complicated history. Director Radu Jude (AFERIM!) delivers an incendiary mix of unconventional form, irreverent humor, and scathing commentary on hypocrisy and prejudice in our societies.”

The End Of Us (2021)

“After a savage breakup, two exes must continue living together when California issues its stay-at-home order for COVID-19. Now they’ll try to move on without moving out.”


Writing with Fire (2021)

“Reporting from a social environment built to divide based on caste & gender, a fearless group of journalists maintain India’s only women-led news outlet. The women of Khabar Lahariya (‘Waves of News’), all from the Dalit (“untouchables”) caste, prepare to transition the newspaper from print to digital even though many of their reporters don’t have access to electricity at home. Armed with smartphones, Chief Reporter Meera and her team of investigative journalists confront some of India’s biggest issues – exposing the relentless discrimination against women & amplifying the voices of those who suffer from the oppressive caste system. WRITING WITH FIRE chronicles the astonishing determination of these local reporters as they empower each other & hold those responsible for injustice to account. Reaching new audiences through their growing platform, the women of Khabar Lahariya redefine what it means to be powerful in this timely and inspiring documentary.”

Hive (2021)

“Sundance triple award winner HIVE is a searing drama based on the true story of Fahrije, who has battled grief and financial struggle since her husband went missing during the war in Kosovo. In hope of providing for her family, she launches a business selling hot pepper preserves, a controversial act of independence that scandalizes her patriarchal village. Amid doubts of her husband’s return, she struggles not only to keep her family afloat but against a hostile community who seeks to violently undermine the independence and sisterhood she is determined to gain.”

The Beta Test (2021)

“A married Hollywood agent receives a mysterious letter for an anonymous sexual encounter and becomes ensnared in a sinister world of lying, murder and infidelity in this scintillating satire.”

Last Shoot Out (2021)

“Cam Gigandet (TWILIGHT, THE MAGNIFICICENT SEVEN) and Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern (THE COWBOYS, THE HATEFUL EIGHT) light up this gritty Western saga of love, betrayal, and revenge.”


The French Dispatch (2021)

“THE FRENCH DISPATCH brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city. It stars Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson.”

Titane (2021)

“A metal highly resistant to heat and corrosion, with high tensile strength alloys, often used in medical prostheses due to its pronounced biocompatibility.”

With this news, Noelle becomes obsessed with the visitor—to the point of infatuation. As the pair plunge deeper into the conspiracies of the Epstein case, Addie falls into her own bizarre state: a pseudo-possession complete with inexplicable fits of age-regressed sexual mania.

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
