Thursday Evening Update

Thursday, 7PM: While Western Malibu remains under mandatory evacuation, roads have now been reopened all the way to Corral Canyon.  This provides access to the Malibu Screening Room @ MJCS, but for now that access is limited to residents only.

The Screening Room is fine, but an environmental safety inspector wants a full week to sanitize the HVAC, shampoo the carpets, clean the chairs etc. If we then get the OK, we'll be ready to resume operations on Friday, November 23 with a screening of LOVE, GILDA.  As you'll see below, this event will be free and open to the whole community -- but you will need confirmed reservations to guarantee your seats.

Whenever we do resume, our plan is to open 90 minutes early that first night so that we'll all have plenty of time to gather and visit as a community before the movie starts.

Please check back regularly for the latest updates regarding all upcoming events.  This website will always be your best source for the very latest information; as so many of our volunteers are still dealing with personal matters, please refrain from calling or emailing with any further inquiries.

As a reminder:  for those in need of temporary accommodations, please contact Scott Hillman at scotth@imtcorp.com. We have compiled a list of people on the West Side offering lodgings to evacuees.

We wish all of you the best, and hope to see you again soon in happier times.

It may be animated but it's definitely not for children. Hungary's contender for Best Foreign Language Feature is an ingeniously imagined story blending elements of psychology, film history, and the world of fine art to tell the tale of a psychologist compelled to steal some of the world's most famous paintings -- only to be pursued by gangsters and an expert private investigator.
