The Terrace screens Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. The film, set in 1969 Los Angeles, is the story of a time when everything is changing as TV star Rick Dalton (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) try to navigate an industry they no longer recognize. The flick might even be considered a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s “golden age.”
