Happy March, Friends!
I’ve been working as a Post Production Assistant on Chelsea Handler‘s AFTER LATELY. The gig ends on 3.29 and it has been an interesting ride. I LOVE Chelsea and she gives her cast & crew wonderful respect.
I have been feeling guilty that I don’t have the time or energy to scour the Internets for hours to update our Screenings Calendar as often as possible. I use every free second and every ounce of energy I have, and I love it, but it’s still a very big job.
I don’t add Film Festival listings (though I wish I could and I might in the near future), but I aim to include all the repertory and free screenings that I can.
I do add some preview screenings (I suggest you sign up for these respective outlets: The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith, Indie Focus, UCLA, USC) but not ALL of them — not the ones from those dudes who stand outside of colleges and theaters trying to ask you if you like this and that movie and you pretty much see a rough cut of the film. That’s not always the case, and it’s not always a bad thing, but there are too many of those to post, and they’re typically movies you’ll come to know from giant billboards.
I emphasize first run films with Q&As and special advance screenings, but Movies in Los Angeles are truly abundant and you’ll never go a day without options for a great screening on the Silver Screen. LA culture is booming and it is beautiful. Take advantage of all events in town. The LA Times, KCRW, The Scenestar and Amoeba Music’s Twitter are great resources for news & culture. ;]
I was hoping to have my groove back with the site by last Friday, March 1st, but we have a few more episodes of AFTER LATELY to deliver and I have committed my time & work to Chelsea until the end of March.
Once we wrap, I will be knee-deep in Post Production for Diego Miranda‘s ALEX AND HADLEY and Ama Lea‘s RED RED in April. I’ll have more time to devote to Movies in LA, but being a Mom and making movies is my priority.
The reason I am divulging my life to y’all is because Movies in LA has become a permanent part of it. This site and the concept of seeing movies on the Silver Screen every day was a dream I had in October of 2010 in hopes of encouraging my friends and everyone in LA to actually SEE movies. I have celebrated incredible moments and people because of this website. I absolutely love each and every one of you.
I am going to put this out there: If there is anyone who is willing to start a sponsorship or partnership with me to have the best Screenings Calendar for Movies in LA, I would be ecstatic. I have many ideas that have yet to be executed, and I can’t wait for the right time to share everything with you all.
Thank you so much for reading this, and please feel free to reach out anytime.
