On Sunday, Hollywood held a little celebration in honor of itself, which a lot of people around the world tuned in to watch. But now that the James Franco & Anne Hathaway Variety Three-Plus Hours is over, it's time to get back to actually watching the movies that the filmmaking industry churns out. And thankfully, there are as always plenty of great options, if of course you know where to look.

But before we get to the stuff we think you should see up on the big screen, we want to make special mention of a monthlong programming series coordinated by head cinephile and New Beverly Cinema owner Quentin Tarantino, who is returning to the theater officially for the first time since his 2007 Grindhouse series. We've mentioned just one of the double features set to be screened this week, but stay tuned for updates and ongoing mentions over the next several weeks.

Otherwise, we would like to remind you to please leave comments and send in emails (cinematicaltips AT aol.com) with any suggestions you may have for events, screenings, or other opportunities film fans may have to share with others in their celebration of the medium. Also, when and if you attend any of the events listed below, please let us know about your experiences, and let the organizers know where you found out about it!

Los Angeles

Anyone unlucky enough to miss Christopher Morris' truly amazing comedy 'Four Lions' has an amazing opportunity to see it under the best possible circumstances when Morris will appear in person for a three-day run of the film, along with some of his earlier work, at the Silent Movie Theatre. Each night of its limited run will feature a different collection of Morris materials, so make sure you visit the Cinefamily website for ticket information and additional screening details.

Tarantino's monthlong programming series at the New Beverly starts on March 1, but if you can't make it every night, at least rope off a few hours on March 6 and 7 for a double feature of 'Road Games' and 'The Anderson Tapes,' the former of which was featured prominently in Mark Hartley's incredible Ozploitation documentary 'Not Quite Hollywood.' There's no telling whether Tarantino might show up himself and bring a few guests, but make sure you visit the New Beverly Cinema website for ticket information and additional screening details.
