Hollywood Comes to Town

They're making a movie in our town. It's going to be called "Pixels" and it stars Adam Sandler and Michelle Monaghan. I read about its making quite some time ago.There appears to have been a delay in the June filming schedule. Instead, the props and scenes have been gradually appearing one by one over the past few days and word is that there'll be action beginning at 7 a.m. tomorrow.
The movie has an unusual premise involving aliens, video games and the 80's. The genre is labelled as comedy sci-fi. I first noticed downtown preparations with the appearance of flags, strange flags, alien flags in the poles outside of local storefronts.

Some buildings have been assigned decorative posters while others are listed for sale. Note the Hollywood telephone number beginning with the usual 555 digits.

As I walked by some of the shops today, I was envious of the 1980's prices.

The Bargain Shop, which went out of business during the winter has been transformed into a video game arcade, the Electric Dreams Factory. Our local Park theatre, also out of business, has been renamed and advertises Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Yes, all the action begins tomorrow morning...and you can be certain that yours truly will be there, front and centre to watch!
