my friday five


1. The Newport Beach Film Festival 
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 Laguna Beach 
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.
 The Newport Edwards theater was 
hosting the fun 
red carpet festivities.
