SCREENING ROOM

Jean-Luc Godard’s films can quite literally leave you breathless, including his 1960 masterwork aptly titled “Breathless,” which screens Friday at the American Cinematheque’s Aero Theatre as part of the theater’s homage to the anarchic New Wave director. Joining “Breathless,” which stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg (pictured), is 1961’s “A Woman Is a Woman,” starring the former Mrs. Godard, Anna Karina, Jean-Claude Brialy and Belmondo. On tap for Saturday is the 1965 lovers-on-the-lam tale “Pierrot Le Fou” with Belmondo and Karina, and 1966’s “Masculine Feminine” with Jean-Pierre Leaud. The fest continues Sunday with the 1965 thriller “Alphaville” and 1967’s “La Chinoise,” and Wednesday with 1967’s “Two or Three Things I know About Her” and 1964’s “Band of Outsiders” (aerotheatre.com). . . . “Rocky Horror Picture Show” fanatics know Sins of the Flesh as the troupe that performs at midnight screenings of the cult musical at the Nuart Theatre. Now Sins are turning Broken Lizard’s 2001 comedy hit “Super Troopers” on its ear Friday at midnight at the West Los Angeles theater. The Lizards will introduce the movie and do a Q&A; after the screening-performance (landmarktheatres.com). . . . For those whose comedy tastes are a bit less R-rated and frenetic, the AFI at the ArcLight Hollywood is serving up Billy Wilder’s charming 1954 romantic comedy “Sabrina” on Wednesday. Audrey Hepburn earned an Oscar nomination as a chauffeur’s daughter who becomes the object of the affection of the two sons (Humphrey Bogart and William Holden) of her father’s wealthy employer (afi.com/onscreen).
