Pacific Theatres, Arclight Cinemas and Cinerama Dome will not reopen
April 12th, 2021 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Movie theaters have been shut down for over a year now, and some of them are never going to reopen. Today, Pacific Theatres, which also owns Arclight Cinemas and Cinerama Dome, announced today that the curtain will never go up again.

“After shutting our doors more than a year ago, today we must share the difficult and sad news that Pacific will not be reopening its ArcLight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres locations,” Pacific Theatres wrote in a statement.

“This was not the outcome anyone wanted, but despite a huge effort that exhausted all potential options, the company does not have a viable way forward.

“To all the Pacific and ArcLight employees who have devoted their professional lives to making our theaters the very best places in the world to see movies: we are grateful for your service and your dedication to our customers.

“To our guests and members of the film industry who have made going to the movies such a magical experience over the years: our deepest thanks. It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve you.”

The news is incredibly sad because we are going to need to go to the movies again when we can and feel up to it. I know that their theaters in Los Angeles are located in areas, like The Grove, that need them to reopen to help the businesses in the malls. Stores are helpful, but people like to go to the movies and eat. Without the former, there is not as much reason for the latter.

I think now that many of the studios have streaming sites to also show their movies, they are going to have to lower the cost they charge movie theaters to screen their films if they want to see their features on the big screen. We need to save theaters because there is nothing like seeing an action film in a theater.

There is also nothing like seeing a movie in the Cinerama Dome. It is one of the most famed theaters in the world, and it is owned by Pacific Theatres. Therefore, it was also shut down. I am sure they are going to find a way to save it. At least I hope they do.

Save movie theaters.

What if The Shining were a ’90s sitcom?
April 8th, 2021 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

The Shining is said to be one of the scariest Horror movies ever made, but what if it was a completely different genre? Logan Cuddemi deredrum it when imagined it as a ’90s sitcom. What would happen if the empty hotel became a full house? It is a take you have to see to believe.

BTW Where is Jack Nicholson? I miss his shining personality.

Nia Vardalos reveals she’s ready to film My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3, but…
April 8th, 2021 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Nia Vardalos told some people that she is ready to film My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3. Since they are Greek, they told some people, and they told some people and so on. Therefore, her secret got out.

She took to social media to clear up the rumors. For the last year, she and the cast have been ready to film the third movie. However, between COVID-19 and not being able to get insurance for her independent film, they are stuck in pause.

Now, the actress, writer, and producer is asking for your help to find a company that will insure her film so that she can make it.

As soon as that happens, the Greek is off to Greece to film. Doesn’t that make you want to see it even more?

So here is a true story about me. One day, when I was heading to work, I got stung by a bee. When I got to my job, I could not find anything to put on it. That was until I saw they had some Windex. Windex can cure anything, and it helped with the pain. Now, I keep a bottle handy.

Remember that sweet little actress who played the younger version of Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30? Well, Christa Allen is all grown. So much so, she wanted to let us know that she is going to turn 30 on November 11th.

Feel old? I called Shady Pines and asked what their availability is? I am moving in next week.

Martin Freeman was not a porn star in Love Actually
March 22nd, 2021 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

I don’t know about you, but I thought that John (Martin Freeman) and Judy (Joanna Page) were playing porn stars in the movie Love Actually. I was wrong. Today, the Sherlock star told Jess Cagle on his SiriusXM radio show that is not the case.

“We were stand-ins on an Eyes Wide Shut type big-budget film. And we were just two sweet normal people who fancied each other and would have these very innocent, lovely, old-fashioned conversations while we happen to be half-naked, and I was squeezing her breasts sort of thing,” Freeman said. “I think you’d want your money back if I was a porn star. You might have felt short-changed.”

I did not feel short-changed after watching him in the holiday film, did you? And did you also think he was a porn star or was it just me?
