Reader: The Royal Tenenbaums deserves a spot in Wes Anderson lineup

In honor of the Classic Film Series dedicated to Wes Anderson that started at the Mayan this week, Josiah Hesse served up the top five Wes Anderson one-liners. "Don't worry about me, I'm on mescaline" from The Royal Tenenbaums made the cut -- but isn't included in the Mayan series.

Says Sam:

I just... don't understand how you leave off The Royal Tenenbaums.

Not to worry, Sam: The Royal Tenenbaums is this weekend's midnight movie pick at the Mayan. As for the rest of the series, here's the lineup:

Wednesday, June 13: The Darjeeling Limited at 7 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.

Wednesday, June 20: Fantastic Mr. Fox at 7 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.

Wednesday, June 27: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou at 7 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.
