“MALEFICENT!”, the promotional display at the ArcLight Cinemas

Disney’s “Maleficent!” – the promotional display at the ArcLight Cinemas

NOTE: This Blog is supplemental to the previous “Chef” the film, Sherman Oaks Galleria, ArcLight Cinemas, and Dinner at Versailles Cuban Food Blog.

I haven’t been to the MOVIES in a long time. There are a few real good reasons why….but I’m not going to go into that subject today. Instead I’m going to go into a little detail on “Maleficent”, a classic Disney character and villain!

"Maleficent!"

“Maleficent!” – I took this pic of the promotional art at the ArcLight Cinemas Sherman Oaks

Created for the 1959 film Sleeping Beauty and designed by Disney Legend Marc Davis, Maleficent is the “Mistress of All Evil”, Disney’s version of the wicked fairy godmother from the original French fairy tale. After not being invited to the royal christening, she curses the infant Princess Aurora to “prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die” before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday.

In the Fantasmic! show performed at Disneyland & Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Maleficent is the true villain along with the Evil Queen. They decide it is time to take out Mickey Mouse, once and for all, and command the other Disney villains to strike at Mickey through his dreams and imagination. Maleficent is the final villain to attack Mickey. The battle between Maleficent in Dragon form and Hero Mickey serves as the climax to the show. Maleficent cries out before becoming the dragon, “Now you will deal with me, and all the powers of my imagination!” Notably different from the original film where she proclaimed “Now shall you deal with me, O Prince, and all the powers of Hell!”

That’s the basic history of the character, so now back to going to the movies….

As detailed in my previous Blog, on Memorial Day Monday, we went to the ArcLight Cinemas in the Sherman Oaks Galleria in the San Fernando Valley, and saw “Chef”.

In the lobby of the ArcLight, there was a large promotional display for “Maleficent” with two costumes worn by Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning and conceptual artwork from the film. The display was enclosed in glass and it was hard to get a clean pic without the glare. It was an unexpected surprise, and it was cool, so I thought I’d share it here.

Not something you get to see everyday! And I’ll probably update this Blog with a review of the film, which opens wide today, soon.

Pic of the Day 27-MAR-13: Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup

POP ART!  Fifty years later, what do you think?

Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans, sometimes referred to as 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans, is a work of art produced in 1962 by Andy Warhol. It consists of thirty-two canvases, each measuring 20 inches in height × 16 inches in width and each consisting of a painting of a Campbell’s Soup can—one of each of the canned soup varieties the company offered at the time.  The individual paintings were produced by a printmaking method—the semi-mechanized screen printing process helped to usher in pop art as a major art movement in the USA.
