Los Angeles Classic Films Early Report for July 26, 2006

The Los Angeles Classic Films Early Report is a listing of classic films playing in Los Angeles for the next month. We list films made from 1999 back, playing in theaters, museums, and other locations.

Why would we do this, when so many of these are available on DVD? So many aren’t available on any kind of video, some are so rare they only pop up once every other decade, and the best reason? There’s simply no better way to see your favorite films than on the big screen, with other fans. There is a link to the location in each listing, where you can find the address to the theater. See you there!
