Didn’t get enough of La La Land  last year? You’re in luck. The film that would be best picture (before not being best picture) is taking its show on the road, and soon citizens of the City of Stars will be able to listen to “City of Stars” while sitting under a sky full of stars.

 

The Hollywood Bowl will be hosting a live performance of the movie on May 26 and May 27, Memorial Day weekend.  It’ll take “City of Stars” in the Hollywood Hills as a close second. The event is set to have a complete fireworks finale. Composer Justin Hurwitz will conduct the Oscar-winning score backed by a 100-piece orchestra, choir and jazz ensemble. The concert will premiere over the two nights here in L.A. before embarking on a tour.

It’s that time of year again when all the flower crowns go on, shirts turn into crop tops, and shorts get shorter. Coachella is back and with a better lineup than the year before. Coachella’s all-embracing three-day lineup consistently crafts the pool of performers from which all other summer music festivals borrow. Three of the most well know acts that are playing on different days are Radiohead, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar.

 

In addition to art and music, Coachella is known for their wide variety of amazing food options, making the festival the perfect experience for foodies. The festival typically has food trucks and stands from some of the best restaurants in the area, with options ranging from vegan to fast food. There are also a number of coffee, tea and other beverage options. The festival also offers an internet café, allowing visitors to access free wi-fi from their mobile devices.

 

Whether you are looking for music, clothes, or fan memorabilia, you are certain to find it at Coachella. The festival has an array of interesting shopping options for people of all ages. In addition to general stores and tents for custom items, Coachella provides a boutique and a merchandise tent.

 

Each year, the festival hosts a number of amusing games for festival goers to participate in. The array of games from previous years included everything from a three legged race to dodgeball, with special spelling bees and contests also available. In addition to games, there are also numerous other enjoyable activities to indulge in, including silent dance parties and arcades.

 

However, tickets for the event do not come cheap. General admission starts at $400+ a few weeks before the event, and rise to $800 the weekend of.

We would be able to purchase tickets for the show starting Sunday, April 30 at 10 a.m.( Time is important because you know those tickets will sell out fast) Tickets will be on sale on Pantages’ website or Ticketmaster.Tickets will cost between $85-$225 which is worth it

The King Kong Makes a Comeback

The King Kong Makes a Comeback

Crimson Chronicle Reporter

The King is back! Since his last movie in 2005 directed by Peter Jackson. Kong: Skull Island ,directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, is those kinds of Hollywood sequels we don’t expect but we don’t mind. Where at the start throws you back in a series of montages of bombs and crashes of WWII and the Cold war. 1973 The government-funded an expedition ,during the last days of The Vietnam War, to explore the recently discovered island,  deep in the South Pacific. Soon, a detachment of  nerds, soldiers, a tracker and an ambitious photojournalist (like those photojournalist that is life and death to record stuff) will be there to either gather undiscovered plants or new discover species and well let’s just say that well they found something big. Okay let’s get real here who are we kidding you’re probably not here for the story or the characters but the damn huge ape himself, and doesn’t he look magnificent. With motion capture by ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ his tactile fur and eyes, Kong comes to life .

Also you would do well to note that this is meant to be an origin story in MonsterVerse franchise, setting up the beast for a planned showdown against Godzilla in 2020 (which sounds amazing already)

Ultimately, this is a movie fashioned on pure action spectacle, using state-of-the-art CGI to breathe new life into the old-school monster movie mash genre
