Local Hype: New LA Logo? Aero Theatre, Academy Museum Advance Tickets, Otaku Vision Studios & More

New tourism logo

Lots of local news to share with you. Much related to movies, but that is the town.

- The American Cinematheque at the Aero Theatre is killing it with cult, classic and fan favorite movies. They're back with a vengeance. Check out their schedule. Quite a few are member only screenings, so you might want to see how bad it is to become a member.

-Did you know the Academy Museum is finally gonna be open in a few months? It opens its doors
September 30, 2021. However, tickets go on sale August 5th at 9am. We're just guessing, but we think it's gonna be selling out even though it's open 7 days a week. 
Anime Expo Lite even previewed Hayao Miyazaki exhibit that will be open when the place is up and running.
We've been waiting for this one for a long time and can't wait to see the love of cinema shared with the world on our own Museum Row. We'll be sure to have more updates as more news comes out about the opening.

*Just a thought, but we really wish they did something cool for Halloween as it opens really within that month. LACMA sort of ended it's fun Halloween activities years back and they could at least show or do some introspective on some horror movies, but who knows what their plans are.
LAist saw it first, but so did the 80's. It's LA's new logo or at least for what goes on stuff to attract tourists. The Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board new logo from LA comes from famed artist Shepard Fairey's  Studio Number One. And we gotta ask. " Oh, how much did the city pay for that?" Because, it doesn't look that new or even stylish for modern times.

Just start writing your jokes for Twitter, but wait there's the 2028 Olympics logo, where the A in LA can be changed by whatever celebrity wants it to be. No, it's a real thing and probably another waste of money, because I don't know how much those celebrities will be paid if they used their version of the A on merch.
- Looks like Videotheque in Pasadena is still around

-Little Tokyo has some updates and we only wish they were good, but sadly Mikawaya the 101 year-old mochi ice cream shop has closed.

 It was a place you had to visit at least once and grab some cool sticky mochi. It reall blows, because the reason seems to be the business behind it just didn't want to deal with the store anymore. Sort of like what happened to Curry House nearby. It'll be missed. via Eater LA 
-Already open in Little Tokyo is an anime store/ tattoo parlor in Weller court.

Otaku Vision Studios

Looks like it can be pretty adult inside and only 18+ might be able to enter, because some merch might be hentai.

We will miss the giant rooster statues.
