P.T. Anderson, Louis C.K. and More to Fete Robert Downey Sr. at Cinefamily

Cinefamily, one of LA’s premier repertory theaters, will present Truth and Soul, a weekend celebration of midnight moviemaking legend Robert Downey Sr, from December 5 to 8. The fundraiser, which will support Cinefamily’s year-long programming, boasts never Downey Sr. rarities, new prints, special appearances, and newly restored versions of his most acclaimed cult films.

Highlights include a career-spanning conversation between Downey Sr. and his son, Robert Downey Jr., alongside a 35mm restoration of the director’s 1966 underground comedy “Chafed Elbows.” Director (and midnight movie buff) Paul Thomas Anderson will present a new 35mm print of Downey Sr.’s trippy 1972 Western “Greaser’s Palace,” with cast and crew attending. 

Festivities will spill into downtown LA, where Louis C.K. will host a DCP screening of Downey’s spicy 1969 satire “Putney Swope.” Tickets now on sale. More info here.
