Around The Sister City

The folks over at Cinespia.org begin their 2008 season of cemetery screenings this Saturday night with the acclaimed Billy Wilder film, Ace in the Hole.

In their 8th year of presenting an eclectic variety of offerings to LA cinema buffs under (and over) the stars at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the film preservation society runs out the gate with Ace in the Hole this Saturday; The Party on May 31; The Hunger on June 7. Gates open at 7:30 pm and the film screens at 9:00 pm. Tickets are $10 at the gate; parking inside the grounds will cost you $5.

Sign up for email notices of upcoming screenings.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Cinespia will once again give Angelenos the chance (as they have for the last two years) to put on their tallest white platforms shoes and dance along to "Tequila" with Pee-Wee Herman at the "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" screening.

I'll be there... just look for the Dork Girl with the Radio Flyer red wagon (loaded down with beach chairs, cooler, pillows, blankets, etc.), votive citronella candles, a pitcher of martinis and the pièce de résistance: an original Pee-Wee Herman pull-string doll sitting atop an original Chairy puppet chair. Find me after a few cocktails and maybe I'll let you pull his string.

Cemetery Screenings, Yelped.

I thought "Ace in the Hole" was what happened when Villaraigosa's mayoral election campaign ran out of funds

It's double-featured with "Parke-d in the Red."

And if you can remember what a "double feature" is, rub some more arthritis cream on your knuckles and keep on blogging!

Thank you Doll very rad!

If I met you there would you pull me around in your wagon?

Hmmm, "pull me around in your wagon" that sounds like some kind of thinly disguised double entendre.

Can we please just have a serious, ranting, gossipy, snide, rude, abusive, adult blog here without the childish flirtations?
