Stars in the sky and on the silver screen, trips to the beach and a cemetery, plus a stroll with a local actor who calls himself ‘the people walker’ … LA delivers the goods for our west coast writer
Watch a movie at the Aero in Santa Monica, or the Egyptian in Hollywood: both are part of AmericanCinematheque, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting “America’s indigenous art form – the moving picture”. It has an old-style ambience and eclectic choices, and after screenings there are often Q&As with the films’ directors and stars. You can see top talent, especially in autumn – the run-up to awards season – when Oscar hopefuls come out to lobby.
