Curated by Marjan Safinia
For the past few years, ArcLight Cinemas has shown its commitment to documentaries through the ArcLight Documentary Film Festival. Now, they continue that tradition with the ArcLight Documentary Series. On Monday nights, the Documentary Series brings some of the best documentary films of the year to ArcLight Hollywood’s cinephile audience.
Curated by filmmaker and President of the International Documentary Association Board, Marjan Safinia, the Doc Series will include everything from festival favorites, to first-look previews, to beloved classics. All of the screenings are followed by a lively Q&A with the filmmakers, as well as an open reception in the upper bar of ArcLight Hollywood.
It’s hard to resist the opportunity to see excellent documentaries in a premiere movie going experience, such as ArcLight’s. The ArcLight has always been where movie-lovers gather. Now it is the place for documentary lovers to gather, too.
