The 3 Best Casino Theatres for Live Shows

There are very few things quite as enjoyable as being able to travel to see some of the world’s greatest shows, and with the increased popularity of live theatre shows, some beautiful auditoriums and amphitheatres have been erected all over the world. Many of these theatres have been built within the grounds of casinos as well.

Objects, Faces & Places - My Visual Diary

Since early 2009, I have lived in constant motion traveling to and living in various cities around the world. Sometimes I stay put in certain cities that I have an attraction towards, for up to a year at a time. Some of the cities which I’ve stayed in for more extended periods include London, Los Angeles and New York City. My lifestyle has led me to have some pretty surreal and amazing experiences and even better, the fortune of meeting some very interesting people.

Silencio | Cannes – Queer Palm closing night party

Every year, along side the Cannes Film Festival, Cannes Classics plays a selection of older films, screened on the beach at the Cinema de la Plage and open to the public. In the years I’ve attended they’ve played Jaws, James Bond, and a bunch of other great films. This year’s program was no exception. On opening night, they played one of my all time favorites, Fellini’s 8 ½. On the nights to follow they played: the Warriors, Hairspray, Purple Rain and for the 30th anniversary of the Spaghetti Western, they featured Sergio Leone’s: For a Few Dollars More; and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The Tragical History Tour -Hollywood, CA

Dearly Departed is the labor of Scott Michaels’ love of Hollywood’s glorious history and seedy undercurrent. The result is a tremendous tour of dark comedy, fascinating trivia and some downright gruesome happenings. Some quirky sightings that stuck out in my mind were Bela Lugosi’s cigar shop. For some reason I imagine him shopping in grainy, slow motion and scaring the other shoppers. Another funny point of interest was the salon where Marilyn Monroe first went blonde, the Happy Days house, the liquor store Halle Berry crashed into, the house from Halloween and the house from Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, this man knows his business.
