Get ready for a nostalgic 3D adventure this weekend with the launch of the 3D: Double Vision Film Series, organized by LACMA and the American Cinematheque in conjunction with our new exhibition 3D: Double Vision (on view through March 31, 2019). The series will take place off-site at both the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. The movies featured include both classic 3D films from the '50s and horror and sci-fi films of the '80s, such as Creature from the Black Lagoon, Amityville 3D, and more. In addition, LACMA members receive a special discount on tickets, so don't miss this Friday's double feature of Friday the 13th Part III and Frankenstein's Bloody Terror at the Egyptian Theatre at 7:30 pm.
If scary movies aren't your cup of tea, come on over to Jazz at LACMA this Friday at 6 pm for a special performance by Tom Rizzo Sextet, well known as a member of the Tonight Show Band in its final Carson years. On Saturday, don't miss Fischer Latin Jazz Quintet: A West Coast Jazz Salute to Clare Fischer and Cal Tjader at Latin Sounds at 5 pm. Composer Brent Fischer has appeared on over 30 million CDs worldwide with pop, R&B, and jazz icons, including Usher, Prince, Michael Jackson, and more! Then on Sunday at 6 pm, stop by Sundays Live for a captivating performance by American Pianist Lara Downes, a trailblazer on and off-stage, following a musical roadmap that seeks inspiration from the legacies of history, family, and collective memory.
Also, if you want to add some Kusama to your weekend, join LACMA Local: Marciano this Saturday at 10 am, where Local members will tour the Marciano Art Foundation’s contemporary art collection, including an exuberant sculptural installation by Yayoi Kusama, With All My Love for the Tulips, I Pray Forever, 2011.
