Around Town: Screenings and events for Father's Day weekend

June 15, 2011 | 12:59 pm


If Dad's a cinephile, there are several ways to mark Father’s Day this weekend. The Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood is offering a special docent-led tour of the legendary 1922 complex on Sunday morning. Visitors will get to peek into the dressing rooms, singers' boxes, projection booth and more. See how modern technology was married into a Hollywood landmark. Afterward, there’s a screening of “Forever Hollywood,” celebrating a century of movie-making with celebrity interviews with such stars as Quentin Tarantino and Clint Eastwood. The 55-minute, 1999 film contains over 400 movie and archival Hollywood history clips. www.americancinematheque.com

Cinefamily marks Father’s Day with a matinee screening of Charlie Chaplin’s “The Kid.” In Chaplin’s first feature-length directorial effort, the Tramp adopts an abandoned toddler (Jackie Coogan) he discovers in an alley and raises him to become his sidekick in schemes and cons. www.cinefamily.org

The Aero Theatre in Santa Monica is holding a dad-pleasing James Bond double-feature on Sunday. Sean Connery stars in both 1962’s “Dr. No” and 1963’s “From Russia With Love.” www.americancinematheque.com

UCLA Film & Television Archive wraps up its series “Smooth Operator: The Opulent Eroticism of Radley Metzger” on Friday, with “Score” and “The Image.” Actress Lynn Lowry, who was in “Score,” will appear. www.cinema.ucla.edu

Saturday’s Cinespia screening at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the 1988 black comedy “Heathers,” starring Wynona Rider and Christian Slater. www.cinespia.org
