Event Review: The Night of the Ad Eaters
Created and produced since 1981 by Jean Marie Boursicot,
The Night of the AdEaters is a show that now runs in more that 40 countries worldwide dedicated to showing the production of advertising among 60 different nationalities on the Big Screen and in a crazy atmosphere!
It’s the opportunity to fling open a window on the world and for six hours to get a taste of what Russian, Asian, African, and South American advertisers serve up.
The Night of the Ad Eaters is cinema and, of course, a show, but it’s also a testimony to our era, based on a language shared by all. With advertising you don’t need subtitles. The message is sufficiently brief and dense to be understood by everyone, transcending linguistic and cultural differences.
Every year, all around the world, 300,000 enthusiasts meet-up to unreservedly celebrate the “Publivore cult”, in a friendly, convivial and fun atmosphere, enjoying each and every advert or singing along to the best-known jingles.
More than 100 cities throughout the world sign on to the tour annually, from Tokyo to Paris, including as well Moscow, Santiago de Chile, Mexico City, Hong Kong or Geneva.
On the menu... are 500 films, 480 of which have never been shown in this format, and the fare always has plenty of appeal and more than a few surprises! International, exotic, even historic in flavor (going from 1898 to the present), the offering translates the vitality and the trends from the different parts of the world of advertising. No censorship is involved: alcohol, tobacco and sex are present. Top actors are involved as well as Top level athletes.

hands down the best place in LA. especially if you're a girl! always an overwhelmingly uneven ratio of males to females... ie: no line to the ladies room after a movie. plus they always have incredible guest speakers, comfortable seats, and great great movies. i adore this place.
Before he dreamt up the Chinese Theatre or El Capitan, legendary entertainment impresario Sid Grauman built the Egyptian Theatre, two years before the 1924 discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb ignited a worldwide design craze inspired by King Tut's treasures. The lavish, artfully decorated theater was the site of the first Hollywood film premiere, screening Robin Hood with Douglas Fairbanks in 1922. Today, it's home to the American Cinematheque, a nonprofit that's been operating the Egyptian... More »
