Big Bite Bacon Fest

Queen Mary : 12:00 p.m. August 2

Tijuana No!

The Yost Theater : 7:00 p.m. August 3

Back to the Future

Regency Theatres Director's Cut Cinema : 7:30 p.m. August 7

Segerstrom Center for the Arts : 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until August 9; 1:00 p.m. every Sun. from August 3 until August 10

Everyone can finally agree that the things that made Ghost the film a hit were the Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody,” Whoopi Goldberg’s Oscar-winning, ad-libbed shtick, Patrick Swayze’s bod, and Demi Moore’s hair. Pennies and tears and pottery helped, of... More >>
