NOTICE
:


Things are finally starting to open back up again here in Tinsel Town.

But it's still a cautious process, so it will take time for the industry to get back into the full swing of things, and return to completely normal.

The governor has promised to reopen the state completely on June 15, 2021, so that should mark the start of our return to normalcy.

It's been so long since a major new movie premiered that I actually missed the first two new premieres: that of the Disney prequel "Cruella", which took place at the El Capitan Theatre, on May 19. And the premiere of "In the Heights", at the Chinese Theatre.

Sorry about that - they took me by surprise.
But I'll try to be on top of anything that happens from now on. 

For instance, there's another new major premiere about to happen in mid-June, for the latest "Fast & Furious" film, "F9". You'll find the details below.

But be warned that I'm not sure how they're handling things now in our almost-post-pandemic world when it comes to crowds. Normally, fans and spectators are allowed to gather outside the theatres during premieres and watch the red carpet arrivals. But I can't guarantee that will be OK with this first new premiere. I think it will, because it's scheduled a few days after the date (June 15) when the governor has promised to reopen the state. So there's a very good chance of a fairly normal premiere event this time.  But I can't guarantee it in advance.

Also note that the Hollywood Walk of Fame committee still isn't quite ready to start up in-person star-unveiling ceremonies again.  Actor Jimmy Smits will receive his star on the Walk of Fame on June 2, but it will be a virtual ceremony, not an in-person event.
