‘Rum Diary’ preem set for Film Independent’s LACMA program

Guest artist Jason Reitman will direct live read of 'Breakfast Club'

Helmer Jason Reitman is the guest artist for Film Independent’s inaugural LACMA Film Series.

Events include the world preem of “The Rum Diary” on Oct. 13, screenings of “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and a restored version of Charlie Chaplin’s “Modern Times” as well as a live read of “The Breakfast Club.”

Series, presented by the New York Times, is curated by film critic Elvis Mitchell with LACMA film coordinator Bernardo Rondeau and the Film Independent team. It will include screenings of narrative and docu pics, along with international showcases, guest-curated programs and conversations with artists.

Said Mitchell: “What’s important to me is … keeping alive the tradition of programming the classic canon so that the theater’s loyal audience feels protected, while adding new elements to the mix that ensures the interest of a new crowd.”

Through the Live Read program, thesps read aloud classic scripts. “One of my favorite moments as a filmmaker is the first table read of my screenplay,” Reitman said. “This should be a fun way to bring people into what has always been a closed process.”
