“Highs and Lows” Double Feature Series Aims to Surprise You

A new film series starts this week at the Arena Cinelounge and The Montalban: “Highs and Lows” will screen double features of mainstream comedies paired with arthouse flicks. Designed to spark discussion about low-brow art and high-brow art, the pairings might surprise audiences by revealing similarities between the films. (I, for one, am curious what “The Last Temptation of Christ” and “Peggy Sue Got Married” have in common.) As the press release asks, “What makes a film high or low? Who gets to decide?”

Tickets are $16 at Arena Cinelounge Sunset and $18 at Rooftop at the Montalban. MoviePass is accepted. For tickets and more info: http://www.arenacinelounge.com
