Posted by George Penner — February 18, 2010

Los Angeles, CA (February 17, 2010) deasy/penner&partners(www.homeasart.com ),a Southern California-based luxury real estate firm focusing on design-centric and architecturally significant homes and estates, is pleased to announce that on February 25, 2010, they will sponsor the showing of Playtime, a film directed by Jacques Tati—at the historic Aero Theater in Santa Monica.

Additionally, deasy/penner&partners will offer a limited number of complimentary tickets to friends and clients of the firm. To reserve your no-cost seat for this unique film event, please rsvp* to: sdhariwal@deasypenner.com

With films like: Mon Oncle (1958) and Playtime (1967), Jacques Tati (1907-1982) made a significant contribution to that small but celebrated group of films in which architecture plays a prominent role; other leading works are Metropolis (1927) by Fritz Lang, The Fountainhead (1949), and the sci-fi film Blade Runner (1982)

Playtime, 1967: Janus Films, 126 min. Dir.Jacques Tati. Monsieur Hulot must contact an American official in Paris, but he gets caught in a tourist invasion and roams around the city with a group of American tourists, causing chaos in his usual manner. In true Tati fashion, we are shown Paris as a stylish maze of mid-century modern architecture filled with the latest technological gadgets.

70mm: in French with English subtitles.
