Film pair­ings that match up

Los Angeles Times - - AT THE MOVIES - —Ken­neth Tu­ran

As reper­tory houses dwin­dle in num­ber, the art of cre­at­ing un­ex­pected dou­ble bills, of do­ing things like pair­ing Ro­man Polan­ski’s “Knife in the Wa­ter” with Robert Aldrich’s “The Big Knife,” is also in de­cline.Which is why it is such a treat to see the in­ven­tive pair­ings that the New Bev­erly, at 7165 Bev­erly Blvd., has come up with to show­case its exclusive 35mm show­ings of Cannes fa­vorite “Okja.”Play­ing on Sun­day and Mon­day with Bong Joon Ho’s in­ven­tive story of a mas­sive porcine crea­ture is Ge­orge Miller’s al­ways-wel­come “Babe: Pig in the City.” Other pair­ings in­clude “Free Willy” on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day and even “King Kong” on Aug. 11 and 12. Reper­tory mad­ness lives!
