This Weekend at LACMA: Catherine Deneuve Series, Young Directors Night, Terry Allen, and More

March 4, 2011

We've got some great film happenings this weekend. Tonight, our latest weekend film series kicks off: Beautiful Dreamer: The Early Films of Catherine Deneuve. Tonight is the double-feature of two essentials, Luis Buñuel's strange and sexy and shocking Belle de jour, followed by Roman Polanski's psychologically intense Repulsion. (While we're talking about Deneuve, be sure to come to LACMA this Tuesday, March 8--Deneuve will be here in person for a conversation and screening of her latest film, Potiche.)

On Saturday, as we mentioned earlier this week, LACMA Muse will hold its tenth annual Young Directors Night (click the link to see trailers for nearly all the films). Tickets for the event include admission to the screenings as well as to the reception afterward, including complimentary drinks and dessert.

Bring your kids on Sunday for our ongoing free Andell Family Sundays. With a new month comes a new theme for the activities: this time you and your family are invited on a "Tour of Europe"--a good opportunity to check out our European galleries, just recently renovated and reinstalled.

Should you prefer something more adult-oriented, pop into the Art Catalogues bookstore for a conversation between artist Terry Allen and Dave Hickey (who is making his second appearance at LACMA in a month). The two will discuss Allen's newly published book; the event is free.

Finally, the weekend closes out with a free performance from the US Army Chorus, part of our celebrated Sundays Live series.  You can hear some of the chorus' music at their website
