Every week, I will post suggestions to get you out of the house and exploring the SoCal area. If you have suggestions for a particular week, let me know and I will include it.
2009 Newport Beach Film Festival
Thursday, April 23 through April 30, 2009
“Set in beautiful Newport Beach, a few blocks away from spectacular coastline and less than an hour from Hollywood, the Festival will host several premieres, galas and yacht parties for a singular festival experience. Films will be shown throughout the city that boasts one of the largest movie consumer groups in the world, a rich filmmaking history as well as fine dining, shopping, and exceptional recreational activities.”
Here’s a link to their Spotlight Films, which will give you an idea of what to expect. I’m personally thinking of going to the Closing Night Film and Party on 4/30. They’re showing 500 Days of Summer starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel.
The First Solo Show from Chaka
Opening Night on 4/25 7-9pm
Exhibit open from April 25 through June 1
Mid-City Arts on West Pico, L.A.
