Movie Premiers at Comic-com

In 1976 Star Wars was the first movie presented at Comic-Con. Now the four-day event, with about 125,000 attendees, is a huge marketing bonanza -- not just for comic-book movies, sci-fi, fantasy, horror and animation but practically any movie or TV show loosely connected to this fan base. We hear what the people at this year's Comic-Con think about Hollywood. Then Jeff Walker, long-time "genre consultant" to Hollywood studios. He  presented Blade Runner at Comic-Con in 1979 and ever since he's lived the geek dream, working for and with the studios on publicity campaigns for movies like all the Batman films, The Matrix trilogy, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Inception and many, many others.

In tough times, local theaters mostly play it safe

Bread and Circuses

David McKee of CityLife looks ahead at the mixed bag ahead on the local theatre scene, noting that in th recession local companies (mostly) focus on what they know will keep the tills full and customers happy, instead of taking risks.

McKee looks ahead at the planned seasons of various community and educational theaters.

Verb loses it power

"I am going to Tivo that tonight."

How long since someone told you that.

TiVo is losing market share and use as consumers move to Digital Video Recorders (DVR's) provided by their satellite or cable provider, DVR capacity built into gaming platforms and the Internet to time shift programming. Once dominate TiVo program selection menues have been copied and updated by other companies.

So, do you still TiVo?

Anyone interested in acting or the business invited to join! It is worth it!
