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.
