This red carpet wasn't about future releases, but about celebrating those of the past ... And Kevin Spacey, Kathy Bates and Demi Moore were among the famous faces out in force in LA on Wednesday (April 24) at the American Film Institute's (AFI) Night at the Movies. Since 2007 the event honours classic films which have gone down into movie history. Director Bryan Singer's "The Usual Suspects" turned Spacey from a relatively unknown actor into a Hollywood heavyweight, when he won the best supporting Oscar for his role as Verbal Kint. SOUNDBITE: Kevin Spacey, "The Usual Suspects" star, on working with director Bryan Singer, saying (English): "Bryan felt that in the interest of the film, it was better that the actor playing Verbal Kint, the audience had never seen or had a relationship with, and it just remains one of the most extraordinary experiences I've ever had." Actress Kathy Bates was also there to later introduce the Stephen King based horror "Misery". Bates' scary performance as the psychopathic nurse Annie Wilkes won her an Oscar at the 63rd Academy Awards. SOUNDBITE: Kathy Bates, "Misery" star, on her character Annie Wilkes, saying (English): "I think evil people don't necessarily feel they're evil. I don't want to make that generality but she, I think, has a totally skewed point of view about who she is and her malady." All in all some 13 films were presented on the night - surely a trip down memory lane for some.
