my friday five

1.  Newport Beach Film Festival  The NBFF started yesterday, and one of the many theaters hosting the festival is the Lido Theater. It's a favorite of mine, and was built during the 1930's. It has beautiful art deco style and a great provenance. 
Here is a little fun bit of history from their page: “The Lido Theatre was opened in 1938, and the first film it played was Bette Davis in "Jezebel". The reason for that was that Davis lived nearby in Corona Del Mar and traveled by the site daily. Upon stopping onsite, she told the owner "they had better open with my picture." And they did. Davis also is responsible for the sitting parlor in the ladies room that harkens back to a time when women sat and smoked and chatted while arranging makeup in the mirrors.“  
Many were interviewed on the red carpet last night including OC's Peggy Tanous, above left. The Newport Edwards theater was hosting the fun red carpet festivities. For a full schedule of events, visit Newport Beach Film Festival.
