Licorice Pizza—in 35mm

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Phantom Thread, Inherent Vice), Licorice Pizza is a nostalgic, irresistible coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of 1973’s San Fernando Valley. On his high school picture day, teenager Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman, son of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) befriends photographer’s assistant Alana Kane (Alana Haim, in “one of the most exciting screen debuts in recent memory” says Hollywood Reporter) setting off their journey through Hollywood, politics, first love, and the rapidly changing landscape of 1970’s America. Also featuring Sean Penn, Bradley Cooper, and John C. Reilly, Licorice Pizza is an exuberant love letter to the ’70s and the welcome return of one of the greatest filmmakers of our time.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"Newbies Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman light up the screen in one of the very best movies of the year"
Peter Travers, ABC News
"[Paul Thomas Anderson] has sifted through a haze of wildly embellished tales and half-forgotten memories and pieced together something that feels more concrete, more achingly, tangibly real, than just about any American movie this year"
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"I'm hard pressed to think of a recent movie whose world I would have liked to stay in longer"
Dana Stevens, Slate
