With this list of alternative, independent cinema in Los Angeles, we've pretty much planned out all your dates for the rest of the year. But seriously, if you're a film buff or want to be one, get schooled on uber-local independent filmmakers by attending screenings at the Echo Park Film Center, brush up on Old Hollywood masterpieces at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, and take your grandma out to the Old Town Music Hall for silent films accompanied by a master organist. You won't regret getting an education around the margins of Hollywood, especially when your friends regale you with horrors of this summer's blockbuster bombs.
