Film Independent at LACMA has landed four enticing programs to soothe your post-Oscars fatigue this March, beginning with Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young" screening March 5.

[DELETED]

On Monday, March 9, Film Independent screens "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief" at LACMA, just before Alex Gibney's "bombshell" Scientology doc, which premiered at Sundance, plays HBO. (Here's our take on what to expect.)

Free Members-Only Screening: Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief
Monday, March 9

7:30 pm | Includes a conversation with writer/director Alex Gibney

Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney has never shied away from controversial subjects, from his 2007 film, Taxi to the Dark Side, which detailed the circumstance behind the death of an Afghani taxi driver at the hands of American soldiers, to his groundbreaking factual look at ground zero of major financial institutional maleficence, 2005’s Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. In his newest film for HBO, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (which recently played at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival), he turns to Lawrence Wright’s exciting and tough-minded 2013 nonfiction book of the same name (Wright also serves as a producer on the documentary). Gibney gets eloquent interviews from disenchanted former members of the Church of Scientology—such as writer/director Paul Haggis and Spanky Taylor (former liaison to John Travolta)—as Going Clear offers a look at the history of Scientology and goes over allegations of intimidation in many forms made against the religion and its leadership. Gibney will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening.

Followed by a reception in the courtyard.

2015, 120 min, color, DCP | Written by Alex Gibney, based on Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright; directed by Alex Gibney

Because the screening is free for members of Film Independent but also requires membership, I thought I should provide membership fee information.

The LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art )...should bring in an interesting crowd.

Good move.

Plus...showing much earlier than the HBO broadcast....more word of mouth!!

If I paid people to hand out flyers for this on the public sidewalk in front of our local org, what do you think the reaction would be?

Tickets went on sale yesterday.

I tried to buy some today.

SOLD OUT. :omg:


Guess I'll be bumping up the ratings on HBO instead. :duh:

That was fast.

:ohmy:

i hope it was pre-orders from the members and not a dwarf phoning for a large group booking, and then their bus gets lost on the way so the screening ends up with mostly empty seats.

But now if that was the case it would be all over the papers the next day lol
