The American Cinematheque pays to tribute to the singular (some may say Atomic-powered) vision of director Joe Dante with a four day retrospective of his most popular films.
Joe will be on hand for the entire series to introduce the films. There will also be a special advance screening of Joe’s latest film, Burying the Ex with the stars Anton Yelchin and Alexandra Daddario in attendance for a post-screening discussion.
The whole thing kicks off on Wednesday, June 11 with a double bill featuring Gremlins and Gremlins 2 (celebrating its 25th Anniversary!)
Here’s the line-up with links to ticket-buying information:

When Joe Dante’s GREMLINS, the tale of furry creatures that morph into reptilian hellraisers, became a 1984 box office hit, it made him the go-to guy for films that frame fantastical elements in everyday settings. See the original on a double bill with a 25th anniversary screening of the sequel as we open a 4-night tribute to the popular director.
