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.

  1. 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.
  2. My favorite and probably the best theater chain in all of Los Angeles, Arclight Cinemas, just released their first iPhone application.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

I’m hoping that this cover art for the blu-ray release of the original 1982 Tron isn’t actually the cover art because, well, it is not so great. Not that I’ve really got a horse in this race, but when you’re working with a movie that has as many easily manipulable visual elements as Tron does, how does anyone end up with this?

Way back in 1982 I would have loved to see a Tron Holiday Special, but I don’t think the rest of America was quite there. Thank Funny or Die, then, for imagining an ad for the Tron TV spectacular that never was. Peek back at an alternate 1982, after the break. Read More »
