THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF FOXTROT foxtrot faith

We soon say goodbye to Project Producer & Lead Designer Faith Stevens after being at The Grand for over five years… but not before we share this not-review of Foxtrot dug up from the Google Drive archives and never-before-published. Enjoy.

Where you might still hear this 'Echo in the Canyon' Michelle Phillips hears Jade Castrinos and Jakob Dylan cover of Mamas & Papas "Go Where You Wanna Go"

The Renaissance started in Florence; Jazz emerged in New Orleans; and in the 1960s, the California Sound was born in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles. Andrew Slater's Echo in the Canyon provides first-hand accounts of what it was like to live among the stars of the folk-rock movement. The documentary examines how artists like The Beach Boys and The Beatles influenced one another, and how a tight-knit community of artists changed pop music forever. Echo in the Canyon also acknowledges contemporary artists who were—and continue to be—inspired by the music that came out of Laurel Canyon. Read on to see my favorite Laurel Canyon-inspired artists and songs!

Funny documentary Hail Satan? Isn't What You Expect hail_satan_-_publicity_-_h_2018

I don’t want to spoil it, but HAIL SATAN? drills down on the topic of the separation of church and state, and sets an amazing set of modern day tenets for this ‘religion’ that left me agreeing and wondering “by this definition, could I qualify as a Satanist”? I think by the end of the film most Grand patrons will be wondering the same.

Movie Review: Land of Mine land of mine facebook-share-img

It is a poetic irony that a film can be so visually stunning, powerfully written, wonderfully acted, masterfully directed, and at the same time hard to look at. Land of Mine achieves just that as it tells the story of young German POWs who are tasked with removing thousands of mines with nothing more than their bare hands.

20th Century Women Review 20th-century-women-mike-mills-1000x520

20th Century Women is a vibrant and exceptionally perceptive new dramatic comedy that explores the maternal efforts of Dorothea Fields, a single mother in her mid-50s, who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie, during a time of dramatic cultural changes and rebellion. This piercingly honest and witty coming of age story examines multiple generations of women as they navigate through and come to terms with themes of love, freedom, identity, and relationships.
