Recently, Malibu was hit with a loss to their community when Malibu Cinemas closed. Many in our neighboring city feel this is a setback as people have shared with me that all great communities have a movie theatre.
In 1979, the Bay Twin Cinemas closed and it was a similar setback for Pacific Palisades.
I was there that last night serving popcorn and soda as a young man. The sadness of losing the Bay was real for our town. For nearly 40 years, we have been without an outlet to enjoy films, many of which are produced by, directed by and feature members of our town.
My excitement is brimming now, as I see the walls and foundations for our new Bay Theatre coming out of the ground. Multiple screens for kids to enjoy films of one genre while a film of another genre screens for adults in an adjacent cinema. How wonderful!
We will once again have a place to enjoy an industry product that is thriving from our community center. Fresh popped popcorn and a cool beverage with a movie will follow a fine dinner in our Palisades Village.
Maybe the Caruso organization will create a segue for us and show the last four films of the old Bay followed by four new films on opening night. I’ll be happy to serve some popcorn.
Thanks to Rick Caruso and company for bringing us back home to Pacific Palisades for the movies. I can’t wait! What day will the doors open?
Thank you so much for the wonderful article in the Nov. 9 edition about the fight to ban Roundup in our community parks.
This is an issue that concerns all of us (and our children and our dogs) who use the park or who walk on the bluffs.
I was truly grateful for the attention the Post brought to this issue.
I also wanted to invite anyone in the Palisades who would like to be alerted if/when there is another city council meeting to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do think that Councilmembers Mike Bonin and Paul Koretz really care about this issue, and I anticipate that they will not let it fade away.
When I attended the city council meeting, I was the only regular citizen who showed up.
This is not a knock against regular citizens, but how would anyone know that an issue that concerns our health and our parks was being discussed and voted on unless they consistently monitored details about upcoming City Council meetings from the city of Los Angeles website?
No one in their right mind has time enough to figure out when and where and what is being discussed on a regular basis, let alone know what hearings are critical to our community’s well-being.

Thanking Mike Bonin
I would like to say a public “thank you” to Councilmember Mike Bonin’s office, especially Lisa Cahill and her staff. I brought them an issue from a residential neighborhood near The Village. It was not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it was very important to my family and me. We appreciate your efforts and your courtesy.
