“Do you think it’s weird that I hang out with Gary and his friends all the time?”

Session Times



Paul Thomas Anderson returns to the San Fernando Valley of the ‘70s for his Oscar-nominated ninth feature, Licorice Pizza. Alana Kane (Alana Haim) and Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) strike up an unusual friendship after meeting at picture-taking day at Gary’s high school. A twenty-something young woman, Alana finds little joy in her job as a photographer’s aide. Gary, on the other hand, has a promising burgeoning career as a child actor, which he hopes will win over the hard-to-impress Alana. Both together and apart, Alana and Gary blaze through a time and place that carry for them the thrill of romance, emerging adulthood and new opportunities.

Nominee: Best Picture
— Oscars 2022
“So buoyant and bubbly, it practically floats off the screen”
— Time Out
“Paul Thomas Anderson’s funniest and most relaxed film yet... freewheels its way around from scene to scene with absolute mastery”
— The Guardian

Why You Should See This Film

With a blissfully loose, warm and nostalgic tone that sits somewhere between Boogie Nights and Inherent Vice, the sun shines on every single joyous minute of Licorice Pizza. Up there among PTA’s finest works, it’s shout-from-the-rooftops good, with a glorious soundtrack and a magnetic lead performance from Alana Haim (whose sisters and parents also star). Enjoy cameos from Bradley Cooper, Maya Rudolph, Sean Penn, Tom Waits, plus a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it John C. Reilly.
