Historic Theatre at Ace Hotel DTLA

A delicately restored, 1,600-seat movie palace from the 1920s with a three-story grand lobby, an ornate open balcony and mezzanine, and a vaulted ceiling with thousands of tiny mirrors that glimmer when lit—The Theatre at Ace Hotel is one of the most remarkable gems in the city.

929 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA

Opening Night

Kick off opening night with a throwback 35mm screening of Quentin Tarantino’s Sundance classic Reservoir Dogs, and then take the festival outside for a celebration with music, drinks, food trucks, games, and more.

Vanguard Awards

The annual Vanguard Awards presented by Acura celebrate the innovation, originality, and independent spirit of two filmmakers: one newly emerging, visionary artist and one creator who is a leader in the independent film community. This year's recipients are Dee Rees and Quentin Tarantino.
