Saturday is shaping up to be a busy day in the neighborhood. In addition to the “Less Mall, More Melrose” street event, there will be a screening and art event connected to the upcoming movie “The Fighter.”
The screening is already booked up, but it sounds like the art event is open to the public. Here is the press release we received from Gallery1988, which is a sponsor of the event:
We couldn’t be more excited to be working with Paramount Pictures and director David O. Russell on a screening and art event this Saturday, December 4th in Los Angeles! And all of you are invited.
Join us on Saturday night, December 4th at 6PM at the Regent Theater at 614 N. La Brea for a free screening of the film, “The Fighter,” which tells the tale of Boston boxer Micky and the whispers for a Best Picture nomination are rather loud. Which is awesome. And you’ll be hanging with people from the movie, so you can’t really lose there. That’s at 6PM.
Then after the movie’s screening, join us down the street at “&Still,” for “Blood, Sweat and Art: An Artistic Celebration of “Irish” Micky Ward” (114 S. La Brea). There will be limited edition screen prints, limited edition t-shirts and customized boxing gloves. And look at the artist roster! Some amazing names in there! There will be beer, soda and snacks and it’s 21 and over. So, keep that in mind.
