LACMA ends weekend film program

Project has lost $1 mil over the past 10 years

After four decades of series and special screenings, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is bringing down the curtain on its weekend film program.

The program, which has screened retrospectives from directors including Roman Polanski and Ernst Lubitsch, as well as a collection of foreign and arthouse films, has lost $1 million over the past 10 years.

According to a statement given by LACMA’s director Michael Govan, the museum intends to revisit the project in the future “in order to reconsider the nature, scale and scope of our film programs.”

The museum’s current retrospective on James Mason runs through Aug. 1. The program is set to end in November.
