  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Haakenson: 'Cold Thoughts' movie to make debut

    Timmy Turner's long-awaited film "Cold Thoughts" debuts Thursday night at Huntington Beach High School's Academy for the Performing Arts auditorium, so don't think twice about seeing it. Turner is Huntington Beach's own surfer-turned-filmmaker, and a...
  • In The Pipeline: Two trees grow in Huntington

    In The Pipeline: Two trees grow in Huntington
    There are many palm trees in Huntington Beach, but few as meaningful as the pair of graceful and slender Mexican fan palms that scrape the sky just several blocks from the ocean on Eighth Street. Like the house they sway in front of, they date back to the...
  • Shadia: No pajamas on this red carpet

    I regard Oscar Sunday with the same importance as a national or even a religious holiday (sue me). Instead of a get-together over a good meal with family and friends, a visit to the mosque to pray and offer thanks to God, my routine is much simpler: I...
  • Greer's OC: Bellacures now has a local toe-hold

    Bellacures, a high-end Beverly Hills and West Side L.A. nail salon, has expanded to Orange County. Founder Samira Asemanfar has already garnered a following of fans for bringing her nail salon concept of supreme attention to cleanliness and spa-like...
  • Natural Perspectives: The story of the horse who was all heart

    Southern California is horseracing country as much as the bluegrass belt of Kentucky. We have the Santa Anita, Los Alamitos, Del Mar and Hollywood Park racetracks, places that some of the Hollywood film stars of yesteryear liked to frequent. We can...
