MFS Releases August Movie Line-Up

Malibu Film Society

Malibu Film Society’s August line-up for its Summer Screening series has been established. Through Aug. 23, the film society will be showing new movies every Thursday. Members of MFS will get free admission; nonmembers can buy tickets for all movies.

On Thursday, Aug. 9, at 8 p.m., there will be a showing of “Leave No Trace.” Featuring Ben Foster, “Leave No Trace” is one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, with a 100 percent positive review on Rotten Tomatoes. Foster plays the role of a single parent raising his teenage daughter “off the grid” in an urban park.

Before it’s open to theaters, MFS will be showing “The Wife” on Thursday, Aug. 16, at 7:45 p.m. Glenn Close stars as a woman contemplating her life choices as she travels to Stockholm, where her husband, played by Jonathan Pryce, is scheduled to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

This year’s winner of the Grand Pix at the Cannes Film Festival, “BlacKkKlansman,” will be showing on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 7:30 p.m. Starring John David Washington and Adam Driver, the movie is centered around a true story about a black officer who successfully infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan. This movie is for members of MFS, AMPAS, film industry guilds and their guests (reservations required).

All three shows will be held at the Malibu Screening Room at the Malibu Jewish Center. Doors open 30 minutes before the screening. For more information, visit
