Manny P. here…
We are drawing near to Saturday’s big Q&A session with J. Michael Straczynski, the Emmy-winning screenwriter of Babylon 5, and the scribe of the acclaimed motion picture Changeling. The Orange County Screenwriter’s Association is sponsoring the event. I’m opening the show with Gary Lycan at 10a (prior to JMS appearance). It’s all taking place at the Regency Theatres South Coast Village Cinemas. You’ll have a chance to get an autograph from JMS after the Q&A and buy a copy of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. J. Michael Straczynski
The venue site of this event is the very same theatre where I saw The Hurt Locker back in January, while I was spending many hours watching the top films of 2009 as a voting member for the SAG Awards. Who knew at the time this fine film would win an Oscar for Best Picture. I had never heard of the Regency Theatre. However, they honored my SAG card, which allowed me to watch the film for free, so I could properly fill out my SAG ballot. Needless to say, The Hurt Locker was one of my favorite films of the year!
The Regency Theatres South Coast Village Cinemas is located at 1561 W. Sunflower on the border of Costa Mesa and Santa Ana. The O.C. Screenwriter’s Association Q&A event is FREE to attend, and this should be a great way to start your Saturday morning. All aspiring screenwriters and lovers of classic cinema are invited to stop by!
Until next time> “never forget”
