Val Kilmer will present 8 workshop performance of his one man play, Citizen Twain, in a limited run at The Historic Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

 

“The recent news of my death has been greatly exaggerated.” – Mark Twain

 

Created and performed by acclaimed actor Val Kilmer, and seen recently in development by sold out audiences in venues in Los Angeles such as Disney Concert Hall, Tim Robbins’ The Actors’ Gang, and The United States Veterans Artists’ Alliance Hall, Mr. Kilmer’s production delves into the heart and soul of Samuel Clemens and conjures forth the great spirit of Mark Twain, America’s greatest storyteller.

 

Deeply entertaining, with great wit, song and prose, the play weaves Twain’s biographical themes into a play that proclaims and takes joy in the marvel of words, which, as Twain says in the play, “Form the ladder to my heaven.”   Storytelling was a lifeline for Twain, and in Kilmer’s Citizen Twain, this lifeline continues into and after Twain’s death, making it an appropriate choice to perform the show within the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Hollywood My Home Town: An evening with Kevin Thomas 

 

 

  

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Kevin Thomas is best known as the longest contributing film critic at the Los Angeles Times but in truth, Mr. Thomas’ life in Hollywood goes far beyond his accomplished writings. Mr. Thomas’ family was one of the first families of early Hollywood and owned property along both Hollywood Boulevard (then known as Prospect Avenue), and Cherokee and La Brea Avenues. His family was French in origin and counted among their Hollywood neighbors and friends the noted artist Paul de Longpré and Louis Blondeau, the owner of the road house which eventually became Hollywood’s first film studio.

   

This evening will provide a rare glimpse into Hollywood history since, as his career progressed, Mr. Thomas could number among his own friends not only well known luminaries like Gloria Swanson, but also Minta Durfee Arbuckle, wife of Roscoe and Gertrude Olmstead, a Valentino co-star. Film historian Robert S. Birchard will host the evening, interviewing Mr. Thomas about his family and career along with a visual presentation of early Hollywood History.

Laura Marling in the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever

HOLLYWOOD FOREVER

6000 Santa Monica Blvd

Los Angeles, CA 90038

 

Tickets are $25

Doors open: 7:30pm

Show: 8:30pm

 

In her native England, singer-songwriter Laura Marling, who just turned 21 in February, has often been described as an old soul, wise beyond her years. Her work is indeed preternaturally mature in its worldview and self-assured in its execution, but — as her third album and Ribbon Music debut attests — it’s equally informed by a youthful sort of fearlessness. On A Creature I Don’t Know, Marling is forthright about her emotions, frank about her desires, and she’s not above having a bit of fun before the going gets too rocky. For example, the album’s final track, “All My Rage,” has a purposely misleading title: it’s an exorcism, a celebration, dancing away accumulated trouble on the disc’s liveliest arrangement, a disarmingly upbeat climax to an engrossingly candid journey.

 

While so many artists of any age attempt to locate their inner child, Marling, with a sometime steely gaze, measures the prerogatives of youth against the looming realities of adulthood – the spectre of mortality, the betrayals of love, the balm of sex, the yearning for companionship, the need for independence. Of late, England has produced some impressively sophisticated young pop artists like Adele, James Blake and the XX, but the folk-oriented Marling remains in a class of her own. As the Times Of London recently posited, “Who else is making music as ambitious, as haunting, as centuries-straddling, as thought-provoking and artistically tenacious as this? And the answer is: nobody. No, really. Not a soul.”

Cinecon 47 at the Egyptian Theater

 

 

To Pay Tribute to The National Film Preservation Foundation

 

The 47th Annual Cinecon Classic Film Festival at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, California will be held over the Labor Day Weekend, September 1-5, 2011. Tribute will be paid to the National Film Preservation Foundation with screenings of two recent NFPF funded projects, The Active Life of Dolly the Dailies Episode 5, and The Chinese Fan, produced by Thomas A. Edison, and the 1920 Metro Pictures film, Stronger than Death, starring legendary Russian actress Alla Nazimova.

 

The Active Life of Dolly the Dailies is presented by the Academy Film Archive through a collaboration of the New Zealand Film Archive, the National Film Preservation Foundation, and the American archival community. Stronger Than Death was preserved by the George Eastman House through a grant funded by the National Film Preservation Foundation.

 

Both films are two of nearly forty rare and unusual films to be screened during the five-day Cinecon Classic Film Festival. Other titles scheduled include Raymond Griffith’s Civil War comedy Hands Up! (1926); Stormy Weather (1943) featuring Lena Horne, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Cab Calloway, Thomas “Fats” Waller and the Nicholas Brothers; Beauty’s Worth (1922) produced by newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst and starring Marion Davies; Blazing Days (1927) an early effort by future Oscar-winning director William Wyler, and The Brasher Doubloon (1947) a film noir classic based on Raymond Chandler’s novel, “The High Window,” with George Montgomery in the role of detective Phillip Marlowe.

 

In addition to the film screenings, Cinecon offers a movie memorabilia and collectibles show during the festival at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel, 1755 North Highland Avenue in Hollywood.

 

If you love movies, Cinecon 47 is the place to be over the Labor Day weekend.
