The CAP UCLA 2016-2017 Season Just Announced

Yesterday evening I found myself heading to UCLA. I wasn’t there for any academic reason but instead found myself at Royce Hall for the announcement of 2016-2017 CAP UCLA Season. I’m a big fan of the performing arts and Royce Hall is one of LA’s premier venues. Not only is it a beautiful structure but […]

Visiting the Urban Rez

On a recent rainy Saturday I grabbed my umbrella and coat and headed to the Los Angeles State Historic Park.  It wasn’t exactly the best weather to head outdoors but I had been given a ticket to the latest performance of Urban Rez – an interactive outdoor play. Honestly, I didn’t want to go and […]

90 Years of The Fox Fullerton Theatre

You know I love a good movie palace. I regularly visit those in LA and even made a point to catch a flick at one in Palo Alto. This weekend I added a new spot to my list – The Fox Fullerton Theatre. The Fox Theatre was built in 1925 to showcase vaudeville performances and […]

The Lovely Los Angeles Theatre

Recently, the Los Angeles Conservancy celebrated their annual film series, Last Remaining Seats. This is one of my very favorite events and this year they showed one of my very favorite films, The Lady Eve. I made sure to volunteer that night and what a night it was! The Lady Eve was shown in the […]

Last Remaining Seats 2014 Schedule

Since we’re on the subject of movie palaces today, I thought I’d share with you the 2014 schedule for the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats film series. I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! It seems like just yesterday I was watching To Catch a Thief at the Orpheum. But in a […]

Touring The United Artists Theatre

When it comes to movie theatres they just don’t make them like they used to. Nowadays if we have stadium seating, movable armrests, and leather seats we think we’re in the lap of luxury. While I admit, I do enjoy these amenities there’s nothing special about the theatre itself. A dark square that’s the epitome […]

Taking the Los Angeles Music Center Symphonian Tour

If you’ve read this blog for awhile you know I love a good walking tour. I love to see locations up close and personal and to learn their ins and outs. Recently, I was lucky enough to join a group of my fellow bloggers in a Symphonian Tour of the Los Angeles Music Center. I’ve […]

The Classic Movie Palaces of Hollywood

Next month I’m headed to the heart of Tinseltown to visit the Hollywood Wax Museum. Thinking about my excursion got me thinking about the town itself. One of my favorite things to do in Hollywood is to visit one of its major movie palaces and maybe catch a flick. The most famous theatre of them […]
