A Saga in the Stars: A Tribute Event to a Galaxy Far, Far Away 

22 of 53
Star Wars fans were out in Alhambra on Saturday night for Gallery Nucleus' massive group show, "A Saga in the Stars: A Tribute Event to a Galaxy Far, Far Away." The art show coincided with May 4, a date that's taken an almost hallowed space on the calendars of fans of the space fantasy film franchise. (The reason for this is simple: "May the fourth be with you.") Party goers came decked out in their Star Wars finery -- costumes, light sabers, R2-D2 high heels and lots of t-shirts -- and sipped on cocktails like the Atom Smasher. With two floors filled with art, the collection featured a mix of paintings, sculptures and digital pieces from a mix of up-and-coming and established artists. Even Shag contributed to Saturday night's Star Wars mania.

  • Iconic Movie and TV Houses of L.A.
    Whether it’s a central location in a feature film or just an establishing shot on a sitcom, Los Angeles has some of the most iconic movie and TV houses in the world.

    Houses such as Nancy’s from A Nightmare on Elm Street in Hollywood or the Cunningham’s house from Happy Days in Hancock Park are instantly recognizable. While directors, location managers and production designers are looking for homes that will best serve the story, inevitably many of these dwellings become celebrated. Perhaps a time machine made out of a DeLorean raced into the driveway. Maybe an extraterrestrial who phoned home was hidden there.

    From the Valley to Venice, from Beverly Hills to Baldwin Hills, the sprawling landscape and vastly different neighborhoods of L.A. make up a “backlot” like no other.

    Special thanks to the Location Managers Guild of America for its assistance.
