Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema Sets Reopening Date


No further details were provided about the cinema's upcoming schedule. More good news for LA moviegoers: Revival house New Beverly Cinema has set a reopening date of June 1 per its Twitter account.
Inception and The Trial of the Chicago 7 star Joseph Gordon-Levitt expressed his glee about the news:
On July 25, 2019, double-features programming was suspended for an extended first run of Tarantino's ninth movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The lobby was adorned with film posters, lobby cards and props from the film. The pre-show had an extended cut of the Bounty Law segment which starred Leonardo DiCaprio's Rick Dalton character as well as vintage trailers which are referenced in the movie.
The cinema reopened in December 2018 after year long enhancements. The 300-seat theater opened in 1929 at Beverly Boulevard near LaBrea Boulevard in Los Angeles. The two-time Oscar winner Quentin Tarantino subsidized New Beverly owner Sherman Torgan to the tune of $5K per month to keep the location open; Torgan, who passed away in 2007, owned the theater at 7165 Beverly Blvd since 1978. Tarantino became the new landlord in the wake of Torgan’s passing, holding the line on developers who yearned to turn the venue into a Supercuts. In 2014, Tarantino became head curator with a mandate that only 16MM and 35MM prints would be shown, and jettisoning the digital projector installed by Torgan’s son Michael.

Los Feliz House Where Leno And Rosemary LaBianca Were Slain By Manson Gang Sold

The LaBiancas were killed the night following the Manson attack at the home of Sharon Tate, where they slaughtered the pregnant actress and four others.
UPDATE:  The house owned by Manson gang murder victims Leno and Rosemary LaBianca has been sold to Zak Bagans, the star of the Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures.
It has been sold several times since the infamous murder, the last sale occurring in 1998 for $375,000. Built in 1922, the two-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom Waverly Drive home has 1,655 square feet and a backyard with patio and pool.
EARLIER: The infamous Los Feliz house where supermarket owner Leno LaBianca and wife Rosemary were slain by the Charles Manson gang in 1969 is back on the market, offered for sale at $1.98 million.
It is a 1,600 square foot home with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Zak told TMZ that the house retains much of its original characteristics, which attracted him. It is also located near where Katy Perry has been angling to buy a convent.
The house is located at 3311 Waverly Drive, a street number address that has been changed from its former 3301, undoubtedly to thwart the curious.
The listing appears just under a month before the 50th anniversary of the notorious murders and weeks before the era is again remembered in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood.
TMZ first reported the deal but did not state the sales price for the home, which was listed at $1.98 million. The closing is planned for September. They did say it received "close to asking" price, and there were multiple offers, although that obviously didn't create a bidding war.
Despite the long gap between the LaBianca murders and today, real estate agent notes warn, “Please research before showing.” The house is listed with Robert Giambalvo of Redfin.
The house is 1,600 square feet and has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, plus a pool.

They were in the second wave of attacks by the Charles Manson gang, following the gruesome slaying of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four other people the night before in Beverly Hills.
Ironically, the news arrives on the weekend of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood, a study of the era and the crazed atmosphere in Los Angeles following the Manson slayings.

Hollywood Who’s Who Raise Objections To Weinstein Co. Sale

Legal experts expected creditors to come out of the woodwork ahead of this week's court hearing, to reassert their financial claims. Still, Lantern will need to resolve matters with top talent if it plans to continue producing movies and TV series.
"The Debtors and Lantern, however, have not reciprocated." "Over the past two months, the Tarantino Parties have attempted to work diligently with The Debtors and Lantern in an effort to determine the precise cure amount due upon assumption and whether to consent to assumption and assignment to Lantern," wrote Tarantino's lawyer Laurel Roglen.
"Absent resolution of the Counterparties' claims and a commitment from Lantern that the cure amounts owed to the Counterparties will be paid, there is no justification for reducing the purchase price."” /> "At present, Lantern and the Debtors are actively seeking to avoid paying the cure amounts owed to the Counterparties and numerous others, under the guise that the contracts at issue (which have been listed in multiple notices filed by the Debtors, including the Final Contract List) are 'not executory,' " the court document argues.
The court filing on behalf of Clooney, Streep, CAA and 15 others cites a little-noticed change in the purchase agreement that raises doubt about whether Lantern intends to pay some of the amounts owed on certain projects.
Quentin Tarantino filed a separate objection to the sale, saying he's still owed $4.3 million in unpaid royalties and participations in connection with four of his films distributed by The Weinstein Co.: Grindhouse/Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.
Some of Hollywood's most prominent actors, directors, producers and writers are objecting to the sale of The Weinstein Company to Lantern Capital, raising fresh questions about the Dallas private equity firm's willingness to make good on the bankrupt company's contractual obligations.
The creditor's committee, which initially objected to the discount, negotiated a more modest $21 million price cut with Lantern and TWC. A hearing will be held Wednesday in Delaware bankruptcy court to weigh approval of the new $289 million deal.
At the time the company said the discount was intended to resolve a dispute over who would pay the millions of dollars in outstanding amounts owed in connection with the various film and television projects Lantern would acquire through the sale. The Weinstein Co. agreed in late June to drop the purchase price by $23 million to ensure the sale to Lantern closes.
Russell, George Clooney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Cusack, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Rachel McAdams and Robert Di Niro, as well as CAA. The list of those still awaiting their checks includes a who's who of Hollywood elites including Brad Pitt, David O.
One document filed today with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court urges the judge not to approve the new, reduced purchase price for The Weinstein Co.'s assets without first extracting a guarantee of payment to those in Hollywood who say they are still owed money by the bankrupt studio.
and instead appears to favor continuing litigation by the Debtors against the Counterparties at substantial cost to the estates," writes Christopher P. "Lantern has not shown any willingness to pay, or even negotiate, the claims … Simon, an attorney representing the group (read the filing here).
"While the Counterparties believe that the change in the proposed price reduction is constructive, the amount is a mere 'drop in the bucket' given the ongoing legal fees and costs involved in the bankruptcy proceedings, the litigation and the sale itself," Simon notes.
