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.“  

There were lots of interviews on 
the red carpet last night, and 
the Edwards Newport Theater was 
hosting all the fun red carpet festivities.
