Johnny Depp & Tim Burton Double Feature at Egyptian Theatre! Writers Larry Karaszewski & Scott Alexander In Person! ED WOOD / EDWARD SCISSORHANDS on Thu, May 17 at 7:30pm
|May 17, 2012|
1994, Disney, 127 min, USA, Dir: Tim Burton
Director Tim Burton’s unabashed love for his subject makes this 1994 biopic of the director of “the worst movie ever made” (that would be PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE) a perversely uplifting experience, although in reality its title character’s life was anything but happy. Johnny Depp portrays legendary schlock director Ed Wood as an enthusiastic hero of the cinema, a man whose love for moviemaking is so intense that it almost makes the quality of his work irrelevant. With an alternately hilarious and poignant screenplay by Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander.
Discussion between films with writers Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander (ED WOOD).
1990, 20th Century Fox, 105 min, USA, Dir: Tim Burton
Director Tim Burton’s wondrous modern fairy tale – his most heartbreaking and inventive film – stars Johnny Depp as the boy with sharp blades where his fingers should be, courtesy of his inventor father Vincent Price (in his final film role). Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest and Alan Arkin are the suburbanites who fall under Edward’s spell in this utterly original Burton creation.

To help celebrate her latest release, Storm and Grace, The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome Lisa Marie Presley to the Clive Davis Theater. With all the hoopla that has surrounded her, it’s easy to forget that is at heart a simple Southern girl whose earliest musical memories are of obsessively listening to 45′s in her bedroom at Graceland and of her dad catching her singing into a hairbrush in front of a mirror at the age of three. The Memphis-born Presley reclaims those roots on her latest Storm and Grace – an Americana-inspired showcase for her songwriting talent and smoldering alto voice.
Produced with elegant restraint by 12-time GRAMMY Award-winner T Bone Burnett, Storm and Grace is a marked departure from Presley’s previous albums, 2003′s gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005′s Now What, which both debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard‘s Top 200 chart. After an interview, conducted by Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman, Presley will take questions and perform a selection of songs.
The mantle—and burden—of her father’s legendary legacy has never rested lightly on Lisa Marie Presley. But now, after decades of personal turmoil, has she finally found her place in the world? Her new life and her new album say yes!

Dan Rather, one of the titans of broadcast journalism, is one of the most distinguished news journalists in American media history. Before serving as anchor for “CBS Evening News” for 24 years.
In his new book, Rather Outspoken: My Life in News, he addresses those moments—from being criticized by President Nixon and Vice President George H.W. Bush as being biased against them, to the scandal of revealing documents critical of President George W. Bush’s Texas National Guard service, documents which had not been properly authenticated. Dan Rather’s legacy in the Watergate reporting is legendary, cornering President Nixon and not letting go. His early international reporting from Afghanistan eventually led to the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, and his interviews with Saddam Hussein prior to the Gulf War just reinforced his position as a most influential figure.
