Are you a person, dear reader? Well well. Good news. Along with JD Samson, we’re throwing a Pride party for people. It’s the first leg of our four-stop tour to bring everyone we can together to dance and smile and love and sweat. If you can’t wait till this weekend, JD made a mix called — and for — All of Us. It just keeps getting better. See you on the dance floor.

Last night in LA, Swedish siren Lykke Li enchanted a sold out audience at The Theatre, and we’re still basking in the glow of her spell. We’ve been waiting months for this moment, and L.L.’s command of the space was awe-inspiring — the elegant bluster of her voice convincingly taking over every corner of the house. Think we might have fallen a little bit more in love with you, Lykke Li. Is it too soon to do it again?

There’s some serious herstory in the making tonight, you guys. After two weeks of sitting on our hot little hands, the season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race — shot in The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown — finally goes out to the world. 
We know, we know — the wait’s been killing us, too. If you can’t hardly stand it, here’s a quick sneak peak. Get an eyeful of our beloved Theatre when RuPaul’s Drag Race Reunited airs tonight on Logo. 
Oh, and in case you hadn’t heard: the West just got a little more civilized. The best kind of baby steps, baby.

Our beloved Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles — once the Texaco building — makes a cameo in this original Superman clip. We’re guessing it’s George Reeves starring in Superman and the Mole Men.

Thanks Kev and Don for the tweet.

The Avant garde filmmaker’s filmmaker, Kenneth Anger made the Thelemic masterpiece Lucifer Rising in England and Egypt over an extended period from the mid-’60s – ’70s. The Theatre, sponsored by Martin Guitar, and our pals at cinespia reunite to bring it back to the big screen tonight, with a special appearance by Los Angeles’ favorite Occult octogenarian himself. Lucky all of us.
