He pioneered a staccato style that would become highly imitated, but playwright, screenwriter and director David Mamet is still one of the more distinctive voices in American independent film — one that will be celebrated at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica in the coming weeks. A sneak preview of Mamet’s newest film, Redbelt, will be held on Thursday, April 17 at 7:30 p.m., followed by an in-person discussion with the director. Friday, April 18 will feature a double feature of 1992’s Glengarry Glen Ross, starring Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey and Alec Baldwin, and 1996’s American Buffalo, starring Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Franz and Sean Nelson. Double features of The Spanish Prisoner and Heist (Saturday, April 19) and House of Games and Homicide (Wednesday, April 23) will also be screened.
