Sorry, this is a Secret Movie Club ticketed event with a higher cost because of the special nature of the event with live music.  Thus, we are unable to offer discounted admission or free admission to members for this event.

Masks are highly recommended at Filmforum shows - N95 or KN95.


Austin, Texas band Montopolis will perform a live score to the silent film L'Inferno (1911) at arthouse theaters on the west coast this October.  L’Inferno is the first feature length horror film ever released.  An adaptation of Dante’s journey through hell, this cinematic masterpiece employs elaborate costumes, special effects, and set design to create an awe-inspiring and ethereal world.  The original Montopolis score brings new life to the horror classic with a mix of psych rock, dark wave and terrifying sound effects performed live.  Montopolis is following up last year's national tour of their Man with a Movie Camera live score.   

A 4 song EP of the score is available on streaming services now titled "L'Inferno".  Written and recorded by Justin Sherburn.  Drums by Jason McKenzie.  Mixed by Brad Bell (Public Hi Fi).  Produced by Jeff Hoskins.     

Montopolis is an indie chamber music group from Austin, Texas that performs the works of composer Justin Sherburn. Their music folds country and folk idioms into modern classical arrangements with inventive instrumentation to create "stunning and transcendent" (Austin Chronicle) concerts.

Their programs are audience-engaging, multi-media events that combine live music with video and interactive story telling. Their most recent albums, Music for Enchanted Rock and The Legend of Big Bend, are themed around Texan ecological points of interest. Montopolis will continue to be inspired by and draw attention to the natural wonders of our state, country and planet. The Montopolis musicians include members of the Austin Symphony, Okkervil River, Tosca String Quartet, and the Polyphonic Spree.

SECRET MOVIE CLUB THEATER (1917 Bay Street, 2nd Floor, LA, CA 90021)

We recommend that you park just outside our theater. Remember our theater is actually in a beautiful street art alleyway in the back of the 1917 Bay Street building. You get to our entrance by taking a right on Wilson, then a right behind the building. We are the first set of black steps on the right after the big gate.

There is also a parking lot at the corner of Mateo and Violet Street, just 2 blocks from our theater, which costs $7 per car.
