The El Capitan Theatre Offering Concessions To-Go This Weekend

You most likely can’t go to the movies right now. But you can spend a ridiculous amount of money on movie snacks – provided you’re somewhere near Hollywood. The El Capitan Theatre, the restored movie palace on Hollywood Blvd. owned by Disney, is selling concession bundles for your “movie night at home,” or if you just want to go home and eat a bunch of movie theater food, alone in the dark with all the curtains drawn so no one can see what you’re doing. No judgment here – you do you. ...

Coronavirus in LA: You won’t believe how social distancing has emptied these popular spots

If the streets of Hollywood are covered with stars etched in granite, but no one’s there to look at them, do they still exist? Our photographers can confirm that crowds have thinned considerably in our new era of social distancing due to coronavirus, and the 2,690 stars that mark Hollywood streets are indeed still there. Despite reports of people doing a little too much hiking, beachgoing and even playing basketball without observing the rules of social distancing in an effort to stop the spread...

Art in the age of artifice

As a magician and sleight-of-hand artist, I've been wrestling with the thorny and slippery notion of Art for a long time. A recent "magical project" rekindled my attention about this ongoing quest. Here follow my latest musings on this domain. What is Art? Art can be seen as the lifeblood running through the veins of human history. From prelinguistic cave dweller to postmodern city dweller, art stands as a witness to the evolution of every culture, reflecting and participating in our views of re...

At Christmas Eve ‘Fiddler’ sing-along, Laemmle Theaters feel the love in wake of potential sale

Choruses of nine full movie theaters around Los Angeles crooned, “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” and “If I Were a Rich Man,” on Tuesday night as folk dancing characters of the 1971 film, “Fiddler on the Roof” fluttered across big screens. The Christmas Eve “Fiddler on the Roof” sing-along is a Laemmle Theatres tradition 12 years running.

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ takes on its biggest challenge. Does it succeed?

After 8 previous films in this series, as well as related movies, TV shows, cartoons, theme park attractions and one very special holiday TV special, you could be forgiven for having little hope that George Lucas’ Star Wars saga could be wrapped up in one film. How could you hope to pull together story lines and fan theories about the original trilogy, loop in the useful parts of the trade-obsessed prequel trilogy, and somehow follow up the divisive “The Last Jedi” — which to some felt like it r...

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...
