Joss Whedon’s film, “Much Ado about Nothing” kicks off the 2013 Oscar Outdoors film series

 

The 2013 Oscars Outdoors summer movie season kicks off with Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado about Nothing,” presented by KCRW’s “Matt’s Movies,” on Wednesday, June 5.  The movie stars Amy Acker, Alexis Denisoff, Clark Gregg, Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz and Sean Maher, all of whom will join Whedon for a post-screening Q&A moderated by KCRW’s Matt Holzman.

Academy Nicholl Screenwriting Fellow Destin Cretton’s “Short Term 12” and festival favorite “Twenty Feet from Stardom” will have advance screenings in partnership with Rooftop Films Summer Series in New York City. Morgan Neville’s music documentary “Twenty Feet from Stardom” will also screen in Hollywood at Oscars Outdoors. The film opens June 14.

The Oscars Outdoors summer lineup, which runs through August 24, will also include such classics as “Big,” “Rushmore” and “Cinema Paradiso.” Screenings will take place at the Academy’s open-air theater in Hollywood.

“After a successful launch last summer, we continue to strive to be the gold standard of outdoor movie events,” said Randy Haberkamp, the Academy’s managing director of programming, education and preservation. “Special guests and surprises will make each evening memorable and fun for the audience.”
