As always, the Aero has some amazing playing that you may not have caught the first time around. Tonight they are featuring two very different films with one thing in common, Kings! Or rather, the Kinds of underrated films. This week they have been focusing on some of the most underrated films of this year. Tonight they will be featuring King of California and The King of King.
At 7:30pm they will begin with King of California: Starring Evan Rachel Wood and Michael Douglas and directed by Mike Cahill.
The film is about a 16-year-old girl whose life takes an interesting turn when her father (Douglas) is released from a psychiatric hospital. He enlists her in his attempt to unearth a lost Spanish treasure, which he believes to be buried beneath the local Costco.
Following that will be the L.A. geeks favorite film of the year The King of King, directed Seth Gordon.
In 1982, “Gamer of the Century” Billy Mitchell managed to score 874,300 points on the arcade classic Donkey Kong, a record many thought would never be broken. In 2003, 35-year-old family man Steve Wiebe, after losing his job at Boeing, found solace in Donkey Kong, surpassing Billy’s record with a thought-to-be-impossible 1,000,000 points. Steve and Billy then engaged in a cross-country duel to see who could set the high score and become the King of Kong.
