New Meetup: LA DANSE : Laemmle's Music Hall Theater/Beverly Hills

Announcing a new Meetup for Los Angeles Film Enthusiasts!

What: LA DANSE : Laemmle's Music Hall Theater/Beverly Hills

When: November 22,[masked]:00 PM

Laemmle's Music Hall 3
9036 Wilshire Blvd
Beverly Hills, CA 90211

Ever the fan of the whimsical art of the ballet, I'm excited to see this documentary which was shown at the AFI Film Festival and promises to be a feast for the heart and soul of anyone who loves the dance ... Join me in what promises to be a magical experience for anyone who is a fan.


Documentary master Frederick Wiseman?s 38th film in a career that has spanned more than that number of years, turns his attention to one of the world?s greatest ballet companies, the Paris Opera Ballet. John Davey?s camera roams the vast Palais Garnier, an opulent 19th century pile of a building: from its crystal chandelier-laden corridors to its labyrinthine underground chambers, from its light-filled rehearsal studios to its luxurious theater replete with 2,200 scarlet velvet seats and Marc Chagall ceiling. LA DANSE devotes most of its time to watching impossibly beautiful young men and women ? among them Nicolas Le Riche, Marie-Agn?s Gillot, and Agn?s Letestu ? rehearsing the choreography of Mats Ek, Wayne McGregor, Rudolf Nureyev and Pina Bausch. For balletomanes and the curious alike, LA DANSE serves up a scrumptious meal of delectable moments, one more glorious than the next, made even more precious by their ephemeral nature.

As the date draws closer, I will update the time and a place for us to meet either before the film or afterwards for a bite and some conversation.
