Event description
35mm Movie Palace screening of James Cameron's TITANIC (Valentine's Month edition!)

About this Event

Part of our LOVE IS IN THE AIR series. Wedn, February 26, 2020 @ 8:15p, The Vista Theater: TITANIC (1997, Paramount, written & directed by James Cameron, 194 mns, 35mm)

*Series & Season Passes: If you have an All-Access Winter 2020 Season Pass, a Love is in the Air series pass, a Sunrise Winter 2020 Pass, or an Epic Sundays Movie Palace series pass, you have access to this movie!

For February, we wanted to screen a sweepingly romantic epic in honor of the month that houses Valentine’s Day. If you’re gonna show a romantic epic in a movie palace, you might as well show Titanic. The movie that for a whole generation of moviegoers became the most watched, highest grossing movie of all time.

And if you were like my youngest brother, it was the movie that made a whole generation of people take photos with their arms outstretched at the front of some massive moving object or mode of transport.

If you weren’t around in the late 1990’s when Titanic came out, it’s hard to fully describe the impact the movie had. Everyone had heard that it had gone over budget, over schedule, and everyone had been waiting over a year to watch what everyone suspected was going to be a mess.

Instead, James Cameron (as he always does) proved the skeptics completely wrong by turning in one of the most dizzyingly romantic, epic, thrilling special effects movies of the last thirty years.

Made with the kind of obsessive focus and care Stanley Kubrick showered on 2001, Titanic is an expertly crafted ticking clock of a movie. We know the disaster is coming from the very beginning. But before it does, Cameron gets us emotionally involved in the forbidden love story of stowaway Jack Dawson (played by Leonardo Di Caprio in the performance that made him a super-star and has kept him there for almost 25 years) and unhappily engaged Rose Bukater (played by one of our generation’s most daring and talented actresses, Kate Winslet).

As the Titanic hurtles across the ocean with its date with destiny with an iceberg, we watch Cameron equally at home with the intimate story of two young people discovering an intense love that few are lucky enough to have let alone consummate.

Of course, the movie doesn’t work if Cameron doesn’t deliver the disaster in spectacular style in the third act. But don’t worry. He does. Filmed almost entirely in Mexico with a mix of stage sets, special effects tank work, computer effects, and model work that, along with Lord of the Rings, still is often the gold standard of combining all special effects technology, Titanic brings the intimate and the epic crashing into each other in startling style.

With one foot in the classic tradition of Hollywood storytelling and one foot in the future of special effects filmmaking, Titanic delivers on all levels.

You remember the Celine Dion song. You remember the lines. Bring your date, the love of your life, your new found crush, your spouse of fifty years, and have a romantic day on us in a movie palace.

best always,

SECRET MOVIE CLUB FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

SCREENING LOCATIONS: We currently screen our movies at The Vista Theatre, 4473 Sunset Drive, Los Angeles, 90027; the Los Feliz 3, 1822 N. Vermont, LA, CA 90027, and The Palace Theatre, 630 S. Broadway, LA, CA 90014.

We also do occasional pop-up screenings at fun historic spaces around Los Angeles. So please double check the address to make sure you’re heading to the right location!

TICKETS: Tickets for all our events are available online at:

https://secretmovieclub.eventbrite.com

or through each individual event on our Facebook Page:

https://www.facebook.com/secretmovieclub35mm/.

We also make tickets available at the Vista Box Office.

Important Warning: Never buy tickets from anyone you do not know personally. We have noticed a rise in fraudulent scalpers on our social media and elsewhere. It’s always better to just write us directly at:

secretmovieclub@curiousproductions.com to inquire about tickets.

OUR 35MM POLICY: We strive to project all movies on film that were originally shot on film. This means that we work to screen the majority of our movies on 35mm prints (with the occasional 16mm print if no 35mm print is available).

We will screen a movie digitally if its original medium was digital. This usually means that we screen what’s called a DCP or Digital Cinema Print. Almost all movies shot in recent years are digital and screen on DCPs.

In some rare instances, a film print will arrive to us in such poor condition that we deem it will be more distracting than entertaining. For this and other reasons, we reserve the right to screen a DCP in an emergency. However, we will make all best efforts to alert the audience immediately if we have to screen a DCP alternate when a 35mm print was advertised.

Situations where we have had to substitute a DCP for an advertised 35mm print have thankfully only occurred a handful of times in our history. But we do need to reserve this right to insure the best possible presentation of a movie for our audience.

ORIGINAL POSTERS: We do limited edition 100 original poster runs for almost all of our movies. We sell these posters at the events and do our best to let our audience see the design at least 1-2 weeks ahead of a screening via our email and social media.

We are currently working to launch our website and online movie store in the Fall of 2019 so you can peruse our entire backlog and get posters of your favorite movies and/or by your favorite designers. Stay tuned!

REFUNDS & COMPLIMENTARY TICKETS: We honor all refund requests made through Eventbrite 24 hours or more before the listed start time of the screening. After that, we are unable to process refund requests. BUT. . .we can offer complimentary tickets to future screenings (as long as they haven't already sold out & aren't special differently priced events).

HOW DOES A SECRET MOVIE CLUB SEASON PASS WORK: If you buy a Secret Movie Club All-Access Season Pass (access to all movies we’re showing within one season), you get entrance into every single movie we show throughout that time (including any screenings or special events we may announce at a later time; so your value may increase!).

This is our best deal at $6.50/per movie if you know you’re going to see the majority of movies in a season.

These passes are available up to the start time of the first screening of a season at https://secretmovieclub.eventbrite.com

If you decide to buy the SEASON PASS and have already bought an individual ticket, just write us: secretmovieclub@curiousproductions.com and we’ll issue you a refund for the individual ticket(s) you bought so you can get the all-access pass.

With the All-Access Season Pass, we generate a special list with your name on it. All you have to do is come to our table ahead of each movie, give us your name, and get your ticket. You’re a VIP now and never have to worry about a movie selling out. We always save you a seat.

HOW DOES A SERIES PASS WORK: If you want to see all the movies in a particular series but not necessarily all the movies in a season this is the way to go and is our next best deal (at $9/per movie) after the Season Pass.

The price of each Series Pass depends on how many movies we show in that series. So for instance if we are showing 7 movies in the series, the pass would cost $63 (or $9 per movie). If we are showing 4 movies in that series, the pass would cost $36, and so on.

You can buy a Series Pass through any individual Eventbrite link for a movie in that series.

We generate a special list with your name on it for that series. All you have to do is come to our table ahead of each movie, give us your name, and get your ticket.

CONCESSIONS: The Vista Concessions counter is open for all our events. So you will always have access to popcorn, soda, candy, coffee the works!

We strive to have concessions of some kind at all our events regardless of venue.

PARKING/PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION:

The Vista & Los Feliz 3 have no dedicated parking lots. Thankfully, there is parking in the residential areas around both theatres. Just plan to get to the theater 20 minutes early so you have enough time to park, walk to the theater, get your tickets, get a seat.

Make sure you read the street signs! A few streets are permit-only parking. We don’t want any Secret Movie Clubbers getting parking tickets.

There are many great public transportation options near the Vista & Los Feliz 3 including a Metro subway stop at the Vermont/Sunset station which is about 4 blocks from the Vista Theater.

The Secret Movie Club (1917 Bay Street, 2nd Floor, LA, CA 90021) has no dedicated parking lot. However, most folks can find free parking on side streets as well as a paid parking lot just two blocks away at the intersection of Mateo & Violet.

The Palace Theatre has no dedicated parking lot. However, most folks opt to park at the Pershing Square Parking Lot:

SHOWTIMES: We screen most of our movies before noon or at 11:59pm. However, we are increasingly able to screen movies as afternoon matinees and prime time screenings.

Always check the listed showtime before buying your ticket to make sure you can make that showtime.

MAILING LIST: We started as a secret email list way back in April 2016. In respect to our origins (and because the programmer is superstitious), we will always announce our upcoming seasons, special events, and speakers via the email list first before posting to any other social media. If you’d like to get on the secret email list, email us at: secretmovieclub@curiousproductions.com.

OTHER QUESTIONS: You can always email us at: secretmovieclub@curiousproductions.com or send a message through our Facebook page: @secretmovieclub35mm

We work to respond asap within receipt of your email or message.
