Some of Southern California’s casinos have reached iconic status with their giant hotel towers, expansive gaming floors and Vegas-style decor, so it’s no wonder they’re attracting guests and big name acts yearly but they’re also drawing another group — studios ready to shoot a movie or an episode of their next big TV show. Several large casinos in Southern California have served as stand-ins for major gambling locales such as Las Vegas or Atlantic City because of their proximity to Los Angeles-b...

Naturally, that was the location for his next project, which just wrapped up filming. “Pay Dirt” stars actors Val Kilmer, Luke Goss and Nick Vallelonga. The film is produced by Sesma and “Green Book” actor Mike Hatton. Sign up for our C...

Laemmle Theatres may have left Beverly Hills, but Lumiere and others moved right in

The unthinkable happened. It only lasted about a week. In late November 2019, Southern California arthouse chain Laemmle abruptly announced that it was pulling out of the Music Hall theater, where it had been showing movies for more than 40 years. Combined with Laemmle ceasing operations at the Fine Arts theater a mile or so east on Wilshire Blvd. earlier in the month, it looked for a brief moment like Beverly Hills – a community as tightly associated with the film business as Hollywood for a ce...

2019 was a terrific year for movies. Here are 12 films you have to see

It was a great year for movies. Funny thing to say about 2019? Well, yes, the exhibition business is going through one of its cyclical panic attacks, with box office receipts likely to fall several $100 million short of last year’s $11.823 billion record (and short of a few years’ before that). Once-reliable big studio franchises such as “Terminator” and “Charlie’s Angels” bombed bigger than those things usually do this year, giving the impression that only comics and cartoons can be relied upon...
