Gary Oldman, who stars in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy as British intelligence officer George Smiley, is being given a six-film retrospective of his work and will appear at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood on Jan. 11 following a screening of the new film.

The free tickets will be available only via RSVP through www.OldmanRSVP.com. KCRW will also be offering its listeners a limited number of giveaway tickets to the screenings.
The other films screening in the series, which runs Jan. 9-11, are Sid and Nancy, JFK, The Contender, Dracula and Prick Up Your Ears.
