Strawberry. And vanilla. And sprinkle-y.

(They're dangerous when you can fit so many in your mouth at one time, though.)

The Dude can move like Neo, man.

Route 6 passes the now-demolished Cinema 21 theater on Hotel Circle North in 1982. An apartment complex now sits on this site.

The famed Cinema 21 marquee in the background.

23 people came to last night's show, so I had plenty of time to take pictures.

This theatre, located at 845 E. Washington Blvd. in Pasadena, originally opened in 1924 as the Washington Theatre. In the 1970's, it became known as *the* place to see blaxploitation films. But in the early 80's, the theatre began its decline, showing Spanish language porn. It closed its door in 1989 and has been shuttered ever since.

 

There used to be apartments above the theatre, but the building had toxic mold, and the tenants were relocated. There has been much talk about restoring it, but so far, no good.

From the balcony. Not terribly well-done, but you can get some idea why that red curtain fills me with such apprehension.

Trying out a few new looks to go with the hair. One of my co-workers called the make-up dramatic. I think that, though, is just because I barely wear any on most days.

 

Also, I love how the carpets at the theater make a great background in overhead shots.

And, though still dinky, my eyelashes are longer than I give them credit for. Thanks, mascara!

And a Polaroid on the wall of the projection booth at Cinema 21.

I took this after midnight, during an employee party. A party that started off with Donny - pictured - singing James Brown tunes. And really doing a job of it, too.

 

Everyone loves Donny, because when Donny brings it, he brings it funky.

I had to trick him to get him to turn around. The low shutter speed made the picture a bit wobbly, but I think he looks good.

Waiting for "The Pool" to begin--an excellent movie shot in the state of Goa in India with a nonprofessional cast. The director is an American (Chris Smith), best known for the suberb documentary "American Movie."

Dan Savage said I could have a picture with him if I let him unhook my bra with one hand. He tried--see top photo!--but it proved to be unhookable. So disappointing :( But still! I got a picture with him!

This is on (in? through?) the box office window at the theater. The thing there says 'no draft' on it, but air freely flows thru. I've tried for some time to take a picture from the box office that I actually like. Finally, here is one.
