Cinematographer: John Seale
Editor: Robert Leighton

Cast: Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox, Richard Dreyfuss, David Paymer, Samantha Mathis, John Mahoney

It seems like the setup to a joke: What if the president of the United States were single and trying to date? By taking the idea seriously, but with a healthy dollop of humor and charm, The American President brings a sense of humanity and warmth to this most mysterious and unknowable of jobs. A knowing script by Aaron Sorkin and winning performances by Michael Douglas and Annette Bening help give the film an undercurrent of heart and smarts. Join director Rob Reiner for a post-screening, on-stage, election-year conversation about the movie and its portrait of modern politics.

Before the screening, director Rob Reiner will take the stage for an in-depth conversation about his career. After the film, he will return, along with select cast and crew, for apost-screening, on-stage, election-year conversation about the movie and its portrait of modern politics.

Producer: Harvey Bernhard
Cinematographer: Michael Chapman
Editor: Robert Brown

Cast: Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Barnard Hughes, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Alex Winter

Smokin' hot vampires, a rockin' '80s soundtrack and a couple of Coreys in their prime — what's not to love? Throw in gallons of fake blood, Dianne Wiest as the raddest mom in town, and a backdrop of Cali burnouts, and you've got all the elements for one of the best odes to bloodsuckers ever to grace the screen — smartly written, visually dynamic and absolutely, unequivocally able to stand the test of time.
