Vidiots to welcome Film Icon Edward James Olmos in-person for two events in May

April 29, 2024

Golden Globe Foundation

Event Date: Sunday, May 19, 2024 - 4PM/7PM - $12

Founded by women, Vidiots opened in Santa Monica as an alternative video store in 1985. For three decades, Vidiots grew its unique collection, and served a diverse, and devoted community of film lovers. Vidiots’ new home, the almost-100-year-old Eagle Theatre, served audiences from 1929 until the early 2000s. Vidiots proudly reopened in June 2023, after investing nearly $2,000,000 to expertly rehabilitate the Eagle and launch a robust slate of community-driven film programs.

Pivotal funding from the Golden Globe Foundation has supported critical renovations and programming, and has made possible the groundbreaking revival of two historic film spaces which have, in short time, created a more diverse, equitable, and healthy L.A. film culture.
