Quentin Tarantino to Host Film Screenings in Honor of Jerry Lewis

As part of the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival Tribute, Quentin Tarantino is hosting a four-film screening in honor of Jerry Lewis’ footprinting ceremony at the Chinese Theatre.

Prints from Tarantino’s personal collection including “At War With the Army,” “Hollywood or Bust,” “Don’t Give Up the Ship,” and “Boeing, Boeing” will be presented on 35mm to celebrate Lewis’ career.

The screenings, which will be free to the public, will be held at the New Beverly Cinema on Saturday, April 12.

The historic movie theater began as a venue for vaudeville, hosting Lewis and Dean Martin and Jackie Gleason.

After its owner died in 2007, Tarantino bought the building to save it from redevelopment.

“Jerry is a Hollywood treasure,” said Tarantino in a statement. “It’s a privilege to host a film tribute at the New Beverly and share my prints of his amazing work with the public.”

Lineup:

10 a.m. -“Don’t Give Up the Ship” (1959, 89 min)

12 p.m. – “Boeing, Boeing” (1965, 102 min)

2 p.m. – “At War With the Army” (1950, 93 min)

4 p.m. – “Hollywood or Bust” (1956, 95 min)
