Last weekend the line stretched out the door to see the Hollywood Museum's Batman ’66 Retrospective. The first museum exhibit to explore the TV show that defined Batman for generations is a must-see.

Filmmaker and Hollywood Babylon author Kenneth Anger appeared for a talk, and industrial musician Boyd Rice and LaVey's daughter Karla held a Q&A upstairs at magic-themed bar Black Rabbit Rose. The night included a live performance by Twin Temple and a midnight ritual performed by Steven Leyba and Jeanelle Mastema.

By any number of metrics, Hollywood is a tiny part of L.A.
Where would Los Angeles be without the film and TV industry? Maybe in a better place.
