Happy to share that is no longer misidentifying Alice Guy Blaché (and that photo of Mary Pickford is where it belongs)

Is Peter Martins inching his way back? The former City Ballet chief pulled Ashley Bouder from her usual "Sleeping Beauty" position, showed up backstage after the first performance and is overseeing Balanchine ballets for the Mariinsky.

For those covering LA's snowfall, some facts. It snows in Los Angeles County every year. It has snowed in the city of LA several times in the last 70 years. It has not snowed in Downtown LA since 1962. It will not snow in Downtown LA today. That's not a photo of LA.

1) This is gross 2) I will never understand why--besides the culture-war angle--anyone was so invested in the sanctity of the original. It was freaking *Ghostbusters,* not the Sistine Chapel ceiling! It was... fine! The remake was... fine! 3) This is gross

Infuriating. It’s not “a lack of understanding about what directors do” that Marielle Heller is describing. It’s a failure to recognize the kind of work many female directors do.

CNN’s hiring of a GOP operative as political editor is even worse than it looks. ...My column on what this terrible hire says about 2020 coverage, whether CNN has learned anything (no) and the defensive addiction to both-sides 'journalism'

I don't know about today, but MoMA's moviegoers were often as rambunctious as those in Times Square. They were dedicated to staying and talking through everything, from "Leave Her to Heaven" ("She was so beautiful") to an Ernie Gehr "Eureka" ("What IS this?) THEY WOULD NOT LEAVE

the companies always want a full house for comedies (I'm pretty sure some install professional laughers in the audience to howl on cue)

Being a teenage girl and walking through the old Times Square to get to a (non-porn!) movie was itself quite the adventure

I spent hour after hour at Theater 80 on St Marks, which had rear projection (16 mm, I think)!

Right on. Moviegoing is a social act, so sometimes you have to deal with jerks - that was as true in the 1970 as it is now (and I imagine the ‘30s). People using their phones during movies are fucking annoying, but other people are often reliably irritating.

I’m sorry that folks don’t have great movie houses like we do in LA. That said I grew up in NY and in the 1970s the moviegoing “experience” often meant scratched prints, shitty projection, filthy theaters, rats and pervs - I didn’t give a shit because I was there for the films.
