Bloodline, the terrific and controversial documentary film that explores the real-life mystery behind The Da Vinci Code, has proven to be an explosive independent hit at the box office in New York and Los Angeles.
The film, which received rave reviews here and in other publications, has been the #1 hit at Manhattan's Village East theatre, and the Laemmle Sunset 5 and Culver Plaza in LA, so it's been extended for another week in both cities.
But be advised, Laemmle has moved the film from the Sunset Strip, west to the Monica 4-Plex in Santa Monica.
It's an easy trip down Santa Monica Blvd. toward the ocean, and worth the drive, because director and star Bruce Burgess and producer Rene Barnett will be hosting Q&A sessions and battling the skeptics following selected shows in Santa Monica and Culver City.
Here's the LA schedule:
Show times: Daily 1:20, 4:10, 7:00, 9:50
Q&A scheduled Friday, May 23 & Saturday, May 24 after the 7:00 PM show and Sunday, May 25 after the 4:10 PM show.
Show times: Daily 2:45, 5:15, 7:30, 9:40
Q&A Sunday, May 25 after the 7:30 PM show
