Wednesday, December 10 at 7:30 pm director David Fincher will appear in person at the Egyptian Theatre following a showing of his upcoming film, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. “I was born under unusual circumstances.” And so begins this adaptation from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man (Brad Pitt) who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. A man, like any of us, but unable to stop time. We trace his story set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918 into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man’s life can be. This is a time traveler’s tale of the people (amongst them Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Elias Koteas) and places he bumps into along the way, the loves he loses and finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death … and what lasts beyond time.
The Egyptian Theatre is located at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028 (east of Highland Avenue). You can visit the website here: Egyptian Theatre or call their 24-Hour recorded information number:
