  • City Lights: Movie experience still worthwhile

    On New Year's Day, my wife and I saw Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" at the Cinemark at Bella Terra. For those who haven't seen it yet, it's about a young orphan who lives in a train station in Paris and finds escape through the silent movies that play at the...
  • Film with local ties to screen at Bella Terra

    Think of it as "The Bad News Bears" set to Klezmer music. Somewhat like the 1976 comedy film about the national pastime, which starred Walter Matthau as Coach Morris Buttermaker, "The Yankles" is about a washed-up ex-professional ballplayer who makes a...
  • The chips are down

    The chips are down
    When the Super Bowl begins Feb. 5, it will be a tense time for the Willson family. Huntington Beach residents Connie and Tom will watch the telecast at a local restaurant, while their son Kevin will experience the game live in Indianapolis. The...
  • Mailbag: No wonder 'Hugo' honors silent films

    I enjoyed reading your article "Movie experience still worthwhile" (City Lights, Jan. 5) and also the editorial "Big-screen blues" in the Los Angeles Times. One thing I would like to add as a reason movie attendance might be shrinking is that, like a...
  • City Lights: Emerging on the page

    If you're within a decade of my age, you may forgive my ignorance when I say that I grew up associating autism with the movie "Rain Man." For those who, like me, saw the film during middle school and rarely mingled with special-education peers, Dustin...
  • Chargers seek another banner year

    The boys' and girls' basketball teams at Edison, Fountain Valley and Marina begin their respective 2011-12 seasons this week in tournament and nonleague play. Below is a capsule look at the three schools. * Edison Girls' Team Head coach: Dan Wiley...
  • Joe Surf: His thoughts on going cold

    What's a surfer like you doing in a place like this? That was my first thought when I saw Huntington Beach's own Timmy Turner at a neighborhood Christmas party the other day. Turner had his five-month old daughter, Tynzlee, strapped to his chest in one...
  • Muppets for the mature crowd

    Muppets for the mature crowd
    Henson Alternative's off-Broadway comedy "Stuffed and Unstrung" isn't the kind of puppet show you might have grown up with. Part of the Jim Henson Co. — which brought children "Sesame Street" and "The Muppets" — "Stuffed and Unstrung" is a...
  • Greer's OC: Film aims to shed light on diabetes

    Greer's OC: Film aims to shed light on diabetes
    A year ago, my editor at this paper was nice enough to let me write about the five-year anniversary of one of my four sons being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Writing about a devastating diagnosis was cathartic, and now I have a positive update....
  • City Lights: The Oscar pool is on

    Everyone has at least one skill that doesn't have a practical use. Mine is the ability to name every movie ever to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. I absorbed that knowledge from years of reading critical studies of the Oscars, to the point...
  • In the Pipeline: After 50 years, Duane Eddy will travel

    In the Pipeline: After 50 years, Duane Eddy will travel
    He's wearing black slacks and a black shirt and cowboy hat. There's a bit of silver woven in, too, that picks up the light in the small hotel room. With his neatly trimmed beard and gentle country manner, he cuts a romantic, old-time figure, like some...
  • City Lights: A baby, a slingshot and $1 million

    Jonah Folk truly is the Million Dollar Baby. The 1-year-old star of the Doritos ad "Sling Baby" may not officially qualify as a child star yet, having no agent or multipicture deal, but he turned out to be quite a moneymaker for his director, Kevin...
