“As part of the ongoing Beyond Fest, on Sunday night “2001: A Space Odyssey” will show at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood with actors Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood in attendance.
And while that is cause enough for excitement among movie fans, it is possible the real star of the evening could be the physical print of the movie itself. The event will be the debut screening for a new 70-mm print that the American Cinematheque will have exclusive exhibition rights to in a five-year deal with Warner Brothers.
The Cinematheque will schedule two extended runs for the print per year, one at the Egyptian and one at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica.” Continue Reading at LATimes.com
Beyond Fest is proud to announce two incredible films which will be closing out its 2016 slate.
First, we’re literally over the moon about unveiling sci-fi masterpiece ARRIVAL as this year’s closing night film! Denis Villeneuve’s latest and greatest brought down the house at Austin’s Fantastic Fest last week and we’re thrilled to be bringing the West Coast premiere of this film to you, LA.
Tuesday October 11, 9:55pm Arrival | Closing Night Film at the Egyptian Theatre Director: Denis Villeneuve Country: USA Runtime: 116 min Year: 2016
When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – are brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.
“A film of rare vision and beauty, Arrival is easily the most intelligent blockbuster released this year-and maybe any year.” Nerdist
A MONSTER CALLS

Discussion following with director J.A. Bayona
At the center of this visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (THE IMPOSSIBLE) is 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall). With a terminally ill mother (Felicity Jones), a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) and bullying classmates, it seems the world has turned against the boy. But Conor finds an unlikely ally when an ancient Monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) appears at his bedroom window to guide him on a journey of courage, faith and truth.
Due to overwhelming demand, TIFF Midnight Madness breakout smash & Fantastic Fest award-winner THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE moves from the Shudder Theatre to the big room for a special free screening this Friday, October 7th at 10:30pm, at the Egyptian Theatre during Beyond Fest.

On the heels of its incredible reign of terror through Toronto & Austin, THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE is ready to scare the hell out of LA with its highly anticipated West Coast premiere at Beyond Fest. Talent and filmmakers will be in attendance, including co-producer Eric Garcia and writers Ian Goldberg & Richard Naing.
