Hot Spot: 2nd Floor of Westfield Century City Mall near Eataly and Del Frisco's, Los Angeles, CA

Deets: Dreamscape Immersive, the location-based VR studio and retailer backed by some of Hollywood’s heaviest hitters, today announced it will open its premier venue in Westfield Century City this December 2018. Audiences can purchase advance tickets for the Westfield location starting today from dreamscapeimmersive.com

. The opening marks the start of an onslaught of activity for the company, centered around a rapid expansion which includes the introduction of four new stand-alone and in-theatre venues via its partnership with AMC Theatres, the world’s largest cinema exhibitor.

AMC has identified a series of key markets for its new Dreamscape destinations, including Dallas/Ft. Worth, Columbus Ohio, and the New York/New Jersey metro area. AMC will begin to introduce these locations in mid 2019.

Dreamscape will open its premier location with the introduction of three original epic adventures. With the company’s exciting slate of free-roaming VR experiences, Dreamscape promises adventurers of all ages will experience the magic of immersive and full sensory storytelling as they are transported to fantastic new worlds.

Walter Parkes, co-chairman of Dreamscape Immersive notes, "At its heart, Dreamscape is about merging the scope and emotional power of cinema with the pure visceral excitement of a great theme-park ride -- all within a totally new VR technology that allows our audience to enter into and become part of the story.”

Alien Zoo, which earlier this year had a sold-out, critically acclaimed six-week pop-up run, offers guests the opportunity to travel to a larger than life, intergalactic haven where they come face-to-face with endangered alien creatures from across the galaxy. Upon arrival, travelers will experience the exhilaration of being able to play ball with exotic frogcats, pet majestic creatures, and, by working together, even narrowly escape the galaxy's greatest predator.

In Lavan’s Magic Projector: The Lost Pearl audiences are offered a fundamental wish fulfillment: to step through the screen and become part of a movie. Once inside this heart-pumping adventure, participants will be challenged to unlock clues, escape treacherous traps, and work together as they discover the secret of The Lost Pearl.

In The Blu: Deep Rescue, Dreamscape’s breathtaking co-production with WeVR, an epic descent into the ocean to explore dazzling underwater worlds and aquatic life soon becomes an urgent mission to rescue a trapped baby Blue Whale and unite it with its mother.

Dreamscape’s premier location will house five stand-alone adventure pods, featuring an array of exciting original and studio-based experiences that will be refreshed on a regular basis.

For more information about Dreamscape, its content and its expansion, please visit dreamscapeimmersive.com

About Dreamscape Immersive

Dreamscape was founded in 2017 by Swiss computer scientists Caecilia Charbonnier and Sylvain Chagué; entrepreneur Ronald Menzel; producer, screenwriter, and former head of Dreamworks Motion Pictures, Walter Parkes; global music events producer and serial entrepreneur Kevin Wall, along with his partner Aaron Grosky; and former Chief Creative Officer of Disney Imagineering, Bruce Vaughn.

The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, with a facility in Geneva. Experiential venues begin rolling out in December 2018, including its premier location at Westfield Century City Mall.

@CAPoppyFest

Deets: Lancaster boasts one of California's most abundant crops of the vibrant poppies that are the state flower. For several years, the City of Lancaster co-sponsored the Wildflower Information Center with the Lancaster Woman's Club to cater to the interests of thousands of visitors who flocked to the Antelope Valley for a glimpse of these brilliant, beautiful flowers. Held at the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery, visitors could pick up free wildflower maps and learn about the best viewing locations before heading out to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve.

It seemed only natural to create an even larger event to welcome and introduce visitors to the Lancaster area. The annual Festival plays host to the colorful poppies, which are an Antelope Valley springtime attraction.

The California Poppy Festival™ also began in part as a portion of the Earth Day celebration. Since the Golden California Poppy blooms each year around the time of Earth Day, it seemed appropriate for Lancaster to combine the two events into the California Poppy Festival™. The first Earth Day was held in the spring of 1970 with an estimated 20 million people participating worldwide. Through the years, the annual Earth Day celebration has grown in popularity; in 1990 an estimated 200 million people in 141 countries participated in different celebrations. The California Poppy Festival™ carries on the Earth Day tradition of concern and caring for the environment.

Hint for the Average Socialite: Tickets on sale soon!

With hundreds of exhibits and not-to-be-missed performances, you'll want to make the most of your time at the Poppy Festival. They’ve compiled the expertise of seasoned festival-goers to let you know the tips for getting the most from your visit.

Dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes. With more than 55 acres of activities, you are definitely going to get your fair share of exercise as you explore the Festival. While we hope for sunny warm skies, spring weather can be unpredictable, and it is good to be prepared for brisk breezes and stormy skies.

Sunscreen and sunglasses. While the sun is responsible for our beautiful, blooming poppies it can be harmful to your skin and eyes, so cover up!

Eat, drink and relax. While you are probably eager to take in everything the festival has to offer, pace yourself. Family-fun is at the heart of the Poppy Festival, and that means taking time to sit down, enjoy performers and mouth-watering delicacies. Antelope Valley visitors often forget that we live in a desert environment, so be sure to drink a lot of water.

For more things to do while visiting the City of Lancaster click here to visit the Destination Lancaster website. For a list of accommodations available, please click here.

So that the festival is safe and fun for everyone it is a must that you leave pets, alcoholic beverages, skateboards, bicycles, scooters, radios, roller-blades, frisbees, tables and coolers at home. For your safety, bags are subject to inspection by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Unauthorized sales, solicitations and distributions are prohibited. Springtime weather in the Antelope Valley is very unpredictable - please dress accordingly and bring plenty of sunscreen.

Deets: Taste of the Eastside, better known as TOTE for aficionados of good food and a fun Sunday is returning to celebrate the ever evolving and diverse East-Side and surrounding neighborhoods of Los Angeles on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 with VIP admission starting at 3:00 pm and GA admission at 4:00 pm on the gorgeous and bright grounds of the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens.

Taste of the Eastside flourished from an idea by a group of parents to raise money for Rose Scharlin Cooperative Nursery School, LA’s oldest co-op for kids and the primary beneficiary and organizer of TOTE.  It has turned into a hugely popular and highly regarded yearly food festival that brings together the best food, drink, and entertainment this side of LA has to offer. Showcasing the East-Side of Los Angeles and surrounding areas that have emerged with new delightful and revered establishments in the hip neighborhoods of Silverlake, Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Echo Park, Downtown, Highland Park, Eagle Rock and beyond, TOTE celebrates the true diversity of Los Angeles. 

Over 30 vendors of savory food and drink including newcomers and longtime TOTE participants alike will have something for everyone to love. Angelenos are sure to be familiar with some of the notorious local establishments bringing top crowd pleasers, including Silverlake’s delectable Chinese spot, Fat Dragon, the cozy Los Feliz joint we all love, Little Dom’s, modern Mediterranean Momed in Atwater Village, Pine and Crane’s newest sister restaurant, JOY on York Blvd., plant based newcomer Jewel, fresh poke favorite, Sweetfin, the hippest Same Same Thai on Sunset, Highland Park’s finest, Californian Café Birdie and French Côté Est Bistro, sweet, sweet Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and the scrumptious Ample Hills Creamery with many more excited participants ready to serve on this spectacular Sunday!

TOTE would not be complete without flights from the region's finest, boutique wine merchants, Silver Lake Wines, who happen to be one of TOTE’s oldest contributors. Of course, there will be signature cocktails from Mohawk Bend and Greenbar Craft Distillery as well as endless refreshing beer from Eagle Rock Brewing, El Segundo Brewing Co., Sage Vegan Bistro and Brewery, Frogtown Brewery and Arts District Brewing Co. KCRW DJ favorites Raul Campos and Garth Trinidad will be spinning tunes for all music lovers, in addition to live music from Pretzel Logic and more to be announced. 

All proceeds from Taste of the Eastside will be donated to highly-deserving local organizations, including Rose Scharlin Cooperative Nursery School, The Pablove Foundation, and FOLAR, Friends of the LA River. TOTE continues to be an environmentally friendly festival by making an effort to compost, recycle and reduce waste wherever possible. 

More about The Los Angeles River Center and Gardens:
The Los Angeles River Center and Gardens has been home to TOTE now for the past four years, giving the festival a unique location and vibe. The venue, a stunning mission-style villa with lush landscaping, soothing fountains and meandering, tiled patios, provides a breathtaking backdrop for Angeleno foodies to sample delicious offerings from some of LA’s hottest purveyors of food and drink. The lovely grounds are home to several non-profit organizations that aim to revitalize the Los Angeles River and promote sustainable living. The address is 570 W Ave 26 #100, Los Angeles, CA 90065.

More about Main Beneficiary: Rose Scharlin Nursery School:
Rose Scharlin is a cooperative Nursery School in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake area founded in 1939 with the distinction of being the very first cooperative nursery school in the City of Los Angeles and the model upon which local schools patterned themselves. It was founded in 1939 as the Echo Park Cooperative Nursery School, using the facilities of the Echo Park Playground but later merging with what was Lakeview Nursery School in Silverlake. The purpose is to provide a safe, secure and challenging environment for the children; to offer them a range of developmentally appropriate activities; and to reflect the diversity of backgrounds, our community and our world.

AN EVENING WITH MOBY, LA

@LiveTalksLA

When: Monday, May 6, 2019 @ 8PM

Hot Spot: Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, 244 S. San Pedro Street, Downtown Los Angeles, CA 90012

Deets:  Spend an Evening with Moby, discussing the second volume of his memoir, Then It Fell Apart. Marking the 20th anniversary of his landmark album Play, Moby’s new memoir Then It Fell Apart is a wild ride of celebrity, addiction, and reckoning.

Moby was born in Harlem in 1965. He is a singer-songwriter, musician, DJ and photographer. The first volume of his memoirs, Porcelain, was published in 2016.

“Somehow this chronicle of a long, dark night of the soul also involves funny stories involving Trump, Putin, and a truly baffling array of degenerates.” ―Stephen Colbert

What do you do when you realize you have everything you think you’ve ever wanted but still feel completely empty? What do you do when it all starts to fall apart? The second volume of Moby’s extraordinary life story is a journey into the dark heart of fame and the demons that lurk just beneath the bling and bluster of the celebrity lifestyle. 

In summer 1999, Moby released the album that defined the millennium, PLAY. Like generation-defining albums before it, PLAY was ubiquitous, and catapulted Moby to superstardom. Suddenly he was hanging out with David Bowie and Lou Reed, Christina Ricci and Madonna, taking ecstasy for breakfast (most days), drinking bottles of vodka (every day), and sleeping with super models (infrequently). It was a diet that couldn’t last. And then it fell apart.

The second volume of Moby’s memoir is a classic about the banality of fame. It is shocking, riotously entertaining, extreme, and unforgiving. It is unedifying, but you can never tear your eyes away from the page.

Hot Spot: Los Angeles, CA (Location on Members Only)

Deets: Catch-22 is a satirical dark comedy miniseries, based on the novel of the same name by Joseph Heller and adapted by Academy Award nominee Luke Davies and David Michôd. Catch-22 is described by Hulu as "the story of the incomparable, artful dodger, Yossarian, a US Army Air Forces bombardier in World War II who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy, but rather his own army which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid his military assignments, he’ll be in violation of Catch-22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule which specifies that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers which are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind; a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty."

When: Tuesday, May 7, 2019 @ 8PM

Hot Spot: Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, 244 S. San Pedro Street, Downtown Los Angeles, CA 90012

Deets:  Spend an Evening with Melinda Gates, discussing her book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World. Melinda French Gates is a philanthropist, businesswoman, and global advocate for women and girls. As the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Melinda sets the direction and priorities of the world’s largest philanthropy. She is also the founder of Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company working to drive social progress for women and families in the United States. Melinda grew up in Dallas, Texas. She received a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Duke University and an MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School. Melinda spent the first decade of her career developing multimedia products at Microsoft before leaving the company to focus on her family and philanthropic work. She lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband, Bill. They have three children, Jenn, Rory and Phoebe.

For the last twenty years, Melinda French Gates has been on a mission. Her goal, as co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has been to find solutions for people with the most urgent needs, wherever they live. Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, invest in women.

In The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, Melinda traces her awakening to the link between women’s empowerment and the health of societies. She shows some of the tremendous opportunities that exist right now to “turbo-charge” change. And she provides simple and effective ways each one of us can make a difference. Convinced that all women should be free to decide whether and when to have children, Melinda took her first step onto the global stage to make a stand for family planning. That step launched her into further efforts: to ensure women everywhere have access to every kind of job; to encourage men around the globe to share equally in the burdens of household work; to advocate for paid family and medical leave for everyone; to eliminate gender bias in all its forms.

Throughout, Melinda introduces us to her heroes in the movement towards equality, offers startling data, shares moving conversations she’s had with women from all over the world―and shows how we can all get involved.

A personal statement of passionate conviction, this book tells of Melinda’s journey from a partner working behind the scenes to one of the world’s foremost advocates for women, driven by the belief that no one should be excluded, all lives have equal value, and gender equity is the lever that lifts everything.

Melinda will be donating all the amounts she receives from this book to charity.

2019 LA PRIDE FESTIVAL & PARADE, LA

@LAPride

@LAPride

Deets: LA Pride expands the Festival grounds adding the first-ever free block party with programming and events that promote greater accessibility and inclusivity. Today, Christopher Street West (CSW), the 501(c)3 non-profit that produces the annual LA Pride Festival and Parade, is excited to announce a diverse group of LGBTQ+ and allied performers set to take the stage at the 2019 LA Pride Festival. This year’s performers will come together on the Festival’s two main stages and embrace this year’s theme, #JUSTUNITE.

LA Pride’s 2019 #JUSTUNITE theme makes a simple, yet powerful statement: that the work the LGBTQ+ community does together is ultimately what will make it stronger and more resilient than ever before. The theme is not only a nod to the Pride movement’s storied history of pioneers and activists who paved the way for the rights LGBTQ+ people have today, but it also is a reminder that the fight for equality is still far from over. LA Pride has embraced this rich history as the fuel to inspire, motivate and drive the LGBTQ+ community to its next chapter.

“LA Pride stands humbly on the shoulders of those that have come before us who worked tirelessly for nearly 50 years to create a movement. Our new generation of leadership looks to honor that past and build on the many hard-fought LGBTQ+ civil rights victories. Our multi-generational community is, indeed, stronger together, and this year’s LA Pride celebration draws upon our diverse experiences to ensure that our collective voice is more powerful than ever,” said Estevan Montemayor, President of the CSW Board of Directors.

For the first time, the LA Pride Festival is expanding onto Santa Monica Boulevard with Pride on the Boulevard, a free block party that will allow guests to gather and watch local performers on both Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 from 12:00pm – 7:00pm. The block party will be located on Santa Monica Boulevard between San Vicente and Robertson Boulevards and is accessible to everyone as a great way unite and celebrate together.

To create even more free opportunities for the community to participate in LA Pride, a new Friday night program has been added to the festival on June 7 at West Hollywood Park. The free evening will feature:

  • An Official Opening Ceremony including a diverse mix of community and spiritual leaders and advocates for the LGBTQ+ community

  • A combination of entertainment, including a WeHo Vogue Ball & Drag Show, a night of dancing, music from local DJs and special surprise guests

Who You May Spot: Meghan Trainor, Years & Years, Ashanti, Amara La Negra, Dej Loaf, Greyson Chance, MNEK, Pabllo Vittar, Ah-Mer-Ah-Su, and more to be announced.

This year’s chilling mazes pick up where last year’s mazes left off, continuing the suspenseful storyline where a predatory entity terrorizes the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, and delving even further into the parallel universe, referred to as the Upside Down. The mazes on both coasts will also parallel the hit show as it leaps forward to 1985, taking guests on a terrifying excursion through portions of “Stranger Things 3,” which begins streaming July 4 on Netflix. As with the previous mazes, Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort are partnering with Netflix and the creators and executive producers of “Stranger Things” to create authentic representations of the blockbuster series.

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” to become victims inside their own horror film. Multiple movie-quality mazes based on iconic horror television shows, films and original stories come to life season after season. And, the streets of each park’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing scare-actors lunge from every darkened corner.

“Halloween Horror Nights” begins Friday, September 6 in Orlando and on Friday, September 13 in Hollywood. Additional details about the events will be revealed soon. Limited time ticket offers and vacation packages for Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights are on sale now.

@GoldenGlobes

@GoldenGlobes

Deets: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), dick clark productions (dcp), and NBC will present the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards on January 5, 2020.

Produced by dcp in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide and are one of the few awards ceremonies to include both motion picture and television achievements. Licensing fees obtained from the Golden Globe Awards have enabled the HFPA to support over 80 nonprofit entertainment-related organizations, including educational institutions with scholarships to underrepresented students, film preservation organizations, journalistic organizations committed to freedom of speech, as well as organizations that support disaster relief and humanitarian crises.

NBC’s 2019 Golden Globes telecast, hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh (5.2 rating in adults 18-49, 18.6 million viewers overall) generated a 10-month high among all primetime entertainment programs, delivering the most viewers at that point for any non-sports telecast on a broadcast or cable network since the prior year’s Academy Awards (26.6 million on March 4, 2018). The 2019 telecast went up 4% year to year (5.0 vs. 5.2) while retaining 98% of last year’s total viewer average.

“The HFPA Presents: Globes Red Carpet Live,” the official red-carpet pre-show for the 76th Annual Golden Globe® Awards, garnered over 3 million views. 

About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was founded in 1943 as the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association (HFCA) by a group of entertainment journalists representing world media in Hollywood, who realized the need to unite and organize to gain the recognition and access to studios and talent accorded to the domestic press. All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of “Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race.” A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $33 million to 80 entertainment-related charities, film restoration, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts over the last 25 years.

Famed archaeologist and explorer Indiana Jones was introduced in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – one of AFI’s 100 Greatest American Films of All Time – and later thrilled audiences in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The four films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office.

HBO DOCUMENTARY FOSTER PREMIERE, LA

@HBOdocs

@HBOdocs

Deets: Los Angeles Premiere for the HBO Documentary Film FOSTER from producer Deborah Oppenheimer and writer/director Mark Jonathan Harris, the Oscar-winning team behind HBO’s “Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport.”

With one in eight American children suffering a confirmed case of neglect or abuse by age 18, there are currently more than 400,000 children in foster care in the U.S., a number that continues to grow each year.

Drawing on unprecedented access, FOSTER explores the often-misunderstood world of foster care through compelling stories from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, the largest county child welfare agency in the country. The documentary mixes firsthand accounts of people navigating the system with insights from social workers, advocates and others, offering a realistic but hopeful perspective on a community that needs society’s support.

Producer Deborah Oppenheimer and writer-director Mark Jonathan Harris (Oscar-winning Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport) reunite to upend some of the most enduring myths about foster care, going beyond the stereotypes.

FOSTER visits courtrooms, foster homes, juvenile centers, hospitals and the neighborhoods of Los Angeles to tell moving stories of the foster care system in the United States. One literally begins in the cradle, focusing on an infant born to a mother who tests positive for cocaine at the child’s birth.

Elsewhere, the documentary features the accounts of: a teenager who entered the system through tragic circumstances and is on probation for a typical adolescent act that might not have been prosecuted in the case of someone from an intact home; a young woman transitioning to college and independence, who has lived in more homes than she can remember; a former foster child who has overcome her painful past to become a powerful advocate for children; and a foster mother who has provided support to more than 100 children.

In conjunction with the debut of FOSTER, Participant Media is launching a social impact campaign, including a ten-state screening tour of the film, that is intended to bring individuals, organizations, corporations and government agencies together to change perceptions of foster youth from “those children” to “OUR children,” and to accelerate solutions aimed at helping children and families to thrive.

THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA RED CARPET PREMIERE, LA

THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA RED CARPET PREMIERE, LA

@lalloronamovie

@lalloronamovie

When: Monday, April 15, 2019

Hot Spot: Los Angeles, CA

Deets: La Llorona. The Weeping Woman. A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand. The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations.

In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain.

Now her tears are eternal. They are lethal, and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed. La Llorona creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own. As the centuries have passed, her desire has grown more voracious ... and her methods more terrifying.

In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children.

Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.

Beware of her chilling wail… she will stop at nothing to lure you into the gloom.

Because there is no peace for her anguish. There is no mercy for her soul.

And there is no escape from the curse of La Llorona.

Who You May Spot: Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Patricia Velasquez, Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick Thomas, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, Roman Christou
