    Bestselling and award-winning author Neil Gaiman comes to the stage with decidedly more than an ability to spin a good yarn. He creates and he inspires. His work extends from fiction and comics to screenplays, song lyrics, poetry, journalism and multimedia works. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Gaiman’s bestselling fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story, Coraline.

He went on to work with scientists and historians at National Geographic magazine to create images of ancient worlds; a project that inspired the conceptual framework for Dinotopia.

    CA – The Princess Bride Screening & Signing

    pbrideCary Elwes appears at a special midnight screening of The Princess Bride on Friday February 20, 2015! Elwes will also sign his new memoir AS YOU WISH.

    RSVP on Facebook!

    Purchase tickets at the link…

    Press Release:

    Want to keep Valentine’s day going? We’ve got the thing for you! THE PRINCESS BRIDE starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Billy Crystal, and Andre The Giant will screen at midnight with a Q&A by The Dread Pirate Roberts himself- CARY ELWES! Cary will be signing his new book (he will only be signing the book at this time) with detailed memoirs of the filming of Princess Bride (books available for purchase on site) from 10:15-11:30. We will also be immortalizing Cary w/ a handprint ceremony, placing those expert fencing hands into the cement outside the lovely Vista Theatre to commemorate the occasion! This ceremony will be around 11pm and we’d love all the awesome Cary/Princess Bride fans to be there for this moment! Please spread the word and bring friends so we can continue to bring your favorite movies back to life the way they should be seen!

    Tickets will be $11.50, sold online and at the box-office on-site. Due to an appearance from the film’s star we would highly suggest early purchase to guarantee you get a ticket.

    **We love an excuse for super enthusiastic fans to dress up, so if you wanna wear a costume we love it! We always have prizes on deck and may award them to costumed guests! Any themed/era costume is fine, you don’t specifically need to be a character from this month’s film!

    Once a month the NERDS LIKE US series takes over the lovely Vista Theatre, one of the last remaining single-screen art-house theatres in the city. We bring back 80s and 90s classics for a night of fun with other people who appreciate this era. If you grew up watching these classics on VHS or Laserdisc (say-what?), but never got to watch them on the big screen this is the series for you!

    **Parking is street only. Make sure to read all signs and do not park in valet or paid parking lots, they WILL close at 2am. You may park at the VONS across the street but most park in the row furthest east and go in to be put on the manager’s list for Midnight Movie goers**

    *Important request- we understand the nature of midnight films draws a more fun and fanatical crowd! We absolutely embrace this and we love when people sing-along with musical numbers or quote along with famous lines. Please, however, respect other theatre goers who are enjoying these films for the first time in decades on the screen and don’t have loud “living-room” style conversation in the theatre. Thanks, and enjoy the show!

    CA – Leo & Donnie Talkin’ Toons

    sgreen

    Voice actor Rob Paulsen welcomes Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Family Guy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) for Talkin’ Toons LIVE on Tuesday March 3, 2015 at 8:00 PM at the Hollywood Improv!

    Get tickets at the link!

    Press Release:

    The world-famous Hollywood Improv is proud to invite you to join Emmy and Annie award winner Rob Paulsen as he talks about his experiences in voice acting!

    About Rob Paulsen:
    Born in Detroit, Rob Paulsen spent his childhood in Livonia and Rochester, attending Junior and Senior high school in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Rob loved cartoons like most kids but aspired to be a professional hockey player. “Fortunately, thanks to some big, strong, kid from Winnipeg who drilled me so hard my ears are still ringing, I learned around age 18 I had neither the talent nor the temperament to make a living playing hockey. So, I turned to my other passions: singing and acting.”

    The goal of bringing absolute believability to a fictional character, live-action or animated, is what every actor strives for. Those who are committed to their career and who combine experience, passion and skill are likely to succeed.

    Those gifted with exceptional talent who focus on maximizing their potential by finding their own niche, quickly break away from the pack. After years of honing their craft and consistently delivering memorable performances in which the character impacts an indelible image on the viewer, the public and the industry take notice, singling out the best.

    “I’m getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the 7th grade,” jests Rob, who won a Daytime Emmy in 1999 as “Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program” for Pinky and The Brain (Warner Bros.) Though nominated twice previously, the victory was especially sweet due to some formidable competition – fellow nominees Louie Anderson, Ernest Borgnine, Dennis Franz and Jeffery Tambor. In addition to his Emmy, Rob won back-to-back Annie Awards in 1997 and 1998. “I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for twenty-five years of full-time employment in this business,” he says.

    “It’s a treat to portray a complex character,” Rob explains about Pinky, a goof-ball mouse with funny teeth, a head filled with clouds and an inane imagination that is punctuated with a staccato laugh. “Besides … where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like ‘Egad!,’ ‘Narf!,’ ‘Poit!,’ ‘Splonk!,’ and ‘Zort!’ are allowed and in fact, encouraged?” With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Rob’s versatility shines in his starring roles as the voices of Yakko, Pinky and Dr. Scratch ‘n’ Sniff in the Peabody and two-time Emmy award-winning series “Animaniacs.”

    Some of Rob’s other well-known animated characters include Raphael of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Arthur in “The Tick,” the title role in “The Mask” (for a WHOLE lot less dough than Mr. Carrey, thank you), the title role in “Mighty Max,” Carl Wheezer in “Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius,” Jack Fenton in “Danny Phantom,” Bobble in the “Tinkerbell” series of DVDs and hopefully more to come.

    Paulsen’s extensive credits include on-camera roles in numerous motion pictures including Body Double, Stewardess School, Eyes of Fire, The Perfect Match, and Warlocked. His television acting credits include guest-starring roles on MacGyver and St. Elsewhere. Additionally, he is one of the most sought-after voice actors in the commercial arena, performing in over 1000 commercial spots.

    As passionate about “paying it forward” as he is about his lucrative career, Rob supports various charitable organizations, particularly those benefiting children and military veterans. Rob’s volunteer work with GOALmodels has been particularly rewarding. GOALmodels, a high school program in Reseda, California, is designed to inspire 9th graders to set goals and overcome obstacles in life. Blending his life experiences with passion for his work, his presentations are informative, entertaining and inspiring. In his leisure time, Rob enjoys golf, riding his motorcycle and occasionally lacing up his skates for another chance to relive his past glory on the rink. He spends the majority of his free time with his wife, Parrish, and their two Yorkshire terriers, Pooshie and Tala.
