LIT Movie Sunday kicks off on April 16 with a special screening of “For Vegas” followed by a Q&A with director and Las Vegas native Robin Greenspun along with exiled Egyptian writer Ahmed Najihe at Segue. Winner of Best Documentary Feature at the 2023 DC Independent Film Festival and recipient of the Award of Excellence at the Docs Without Borders International Film Festival, “For Vegas” follows Ahmed as he finds his foothold in his adoptive city, striving to understand not only his own life as a writer in exile but the life of a city whose roots were founded as a waystation, a temporary stop for so many over its storied history.
In celebration of Poetry Month, a new progressive presenter series and a pre-show feature entitled FOREWORD makes its debut on April 20 with Las Vegas-based poet Elle Hope, who will introduce a screening of the sci-fi musical movie poem “Neptune Frost.”

About The Beverly Theater
Imagined by The Rogers Foundation, the 14,306 square-foot film house and concert theater features three distinct areas: the main theater, Segue (jazz terrace), and courtyard, each designed with purpose and intention. The Beverly Theater has an on-site box office, retail/concession space. The main theater features raked seating of nearly 150 seats resting on a retractable platform that can allow for an expanded concert capacity of up to 500. Designed as a touring house, other premier concert-mode amenities include Meyer sound, meet and greet spaces, easy load-in, unobstructed sightlines, artist lounge/green room, ETC control, unmatched acoustics, and state-of-the-art connectivity and control. With an extraordinary emphasis on the film-watching experience, the 360-square-foot screen is coupled with a motorized cinema masking system and has been designed to maximize viewing angles from every seat in the house. Located on 6th Street and Bonneville in Downtown Las Vegas, The Beverly Theater is a not-for-profit venue and further underscores The Rogers Foundation’s ongoing commitment to supporting the arts.
