Attempting to keep up with all the film events in Los Angeles is an exercise in futility. There’s simply too much going on all at once, all over town. But every once in a while a few pieces of news hit at once and that’s why we created /Film LA. Here’s what we’ve got.
- The original 1982 Tron is screening March 5 at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica with writer/director Steven Lisberger and more in attendance. As an added bonus, it’ll be in 70mm.

- Disney has finally set the official opening date for the Disneyland opening of the brand new Star Tours: The Adventures Continue: June 3. Also opening that day is an all-new Little Mermaid ride.
- In case you missed it, Quentin Tarantino is taking over his New Beverly Cinema in March including a premiere run of Kill Bill: The Whole Blood Affair.
