Pulp: A Film About... and Q&A with Jarvis Cocker

This is not a concert, but it's a movie about Pulp. Jarvis Cocker will be there for a Q & A session! Seats are general admission, undesignated, and $20 each. If anyone wants to, we can meet up nearby in Downtown L.A. before we see the movie! I got the info. below from the website sponsoring the movie:
DKTR and Cinefamily has teamed up with FYF, Cinespia and the Ace Hotel to bring you this incredible one of a kind event!

YES Jarvis Cocker and filmmaker Florian Habicht will be here in person to present their amazing movie on PULP in the most exquisite setting at The Theater at The Ace Hotel downtown LA, the restored United Artist movie palace!

“Moving, funny, sweet, eccentric — and the reaction from the audience, well, it’s the kind of thing that makes you feel like you are smiling with your heart. Two people who I spoke with were moved to tears. How many rock docs can you say that about?” — Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds

Pulp, best known stateside for their deliriously infectious anthem “Common People”, are one of the quintessential Britpop bands, so distinctly carrying their Northern UK heritage on their sleeve that to know them is to become an honorary citizen of Sheffield, their hometown. Taking that to heart, co-director Florian Habicht teams up with highly charismatic Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker to produce both a concert film chronicling the band’s 2012 farewell Sheffield show, and a “family album” of Sheffield regulars: the Common People. Habicht gets these vox populists to wax fondly about what the town means to them, and how Pulp has woven itself into the very fabric of the town’s lasting culture. “Cocker’s knack for keeping it real, for drawing from regular experience and feeding back into it, is the film’s effortlessly realised QED. If you ever had your head invaded for days on end by Pulp’s ‘Common People’, prepare to have it reoccupied, this time with a portrait gallery for company. If you haven’t, there could hardly be a more irresistible invitation to join the party.” (New Zealand Int’l Film Festival) Q&A with Jarvis Cocker and Florian Habicht after screening!
Dir. Florian Habicht, 2014, digital presentation, 90 min.

    I'll be there with a couple friends. I'd be up for meeting people from the group, even if just to say hello and have a drink.

      You can contact me tomorrow and take it from there. I don't know how the restaurant will be. I have 5 others who have RSVP'ed for dinner. We'll definitely make our way towards the theatre at around 8pm to make sure we get good seats!

    Brilliant...undoubtedly the band that ended up on top after the ridiculous of the whole Britpop thing passed....although I suppose Damon has done alright for himself....Jarvis is king though

      True, I saw Pulp open up for Blur back in '94!It was awesome! I'd have to say that I prefer shoegaze to Britpop though.

    Update: I have two members RSVP for dinner at the L.A. Chapter at 6pm on Tuesday, before the movie. If you would like to join us, please let me know by Sunday night, so I can make changes to the dinner reservations. If you can't make it to dinner, you can meet us at 8pm to find good seats! Thank you!

    If anyone here would like to have dinner at the Ace Hotel in its restaurant called "The L.A. Chapter", let me know, so I can make reservations. I would make reservations for 6pm. I called the restaurant and the guy on the phone said that the theatre will probably be packed on Tuesday, and it would be a good idea to find some good seats at 8pm for the 9pm movie screening. If you want to pass on dinner, we can meet at the hotel at 8pm and then find some good seats in the theatre!

      To Lisa J: I checked the website again and found out that the event is sold out. Maybe you can find a ticket on craigslist?
