#TBT At The Laemmle: City Of God
March 17, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
If you run, the beast will get you. If you stay, the beast will eat you.
A shocking, disturbing and utterly compelling look at life in the slums of Rio de Janiero, CITY OF GOD is set on the mean streets of Rio in the Cidade de Deus housing project. Stretched over 15 years, from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, the story focuses on two boys who grow up taking very different paths. One becomes a photographer, the other a drug dealer. The film follows their paths through a series of vignettes, as we learn about the nasty, brutish and short lives of those wrapped up in the dangerous world of drugs and crime in the cruelest part of Brazil.
Laemmle NoHo 7
The Laemmle NoHo 7 Theatre opened on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 in the newly revitalized North Hollywood Arts district. The venue features stadium-style auditoriums, comfortable rocker seats with extra leg room, state-of-the-art digital projection and wall-to-wall screens. Also, a first for Laemmle Theatres, the box office is inside the lobby so patrons can order tickets in comfort, protected from the elements. The METRO Red Line brings you within two blocks of the NoHo 7 and with dozens of dining options within walking distance, it’s a great destination for dinner and a movie! If you haven’t been to North Hollywood lately, it’s worth the trip.
