The first picture show

Our movie theater - all two screens of it - is back! Well, almost. Opening date: Nov. 17. Invitation only. Cocktail party to celebrate on Nov. 15. Yep, invitation only.

We've been movie-less since the spring of 2005 when our Wallace theater, small as a screening room, went up in flames. A year and a half (give or take) later, there it is, rebuilt, refurbished but not, unlike so many Malibu businesses in recent months, ruined.

Instead of super-sizing, going all multiple multiplex, the owner simply rebuilt. The same but better. What a concept.
Word is, the seats are cushier, the sight lines better, the equipment upgraded and the snack bar updated. The prices, I'm told, will stay the same.

So it's back to date night in downtown Malibu, dinner and a movie, where the person elbow-deep in jumbo popcorn next to you might just as easily be the same person you're watching on the screen.
