Mr McKay is a director of the fund and has donated over £3.2million to...

    HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Frustrated business owners in Hollywood are pleading with the city to help deal with a large homeless encampment growing in the area. The encampment is near Martel Avenue and Sunset Boulevard. The city cleared out the encampment roughly a year ago, but it's back and growing. One local business owner blames the city for not policing the area and letting homeless people move back in without any pushback. Other business owners are so frustrated, they've hired security. Business owners are not the only ones upset the homeless have moved back in. Hollywood resident Charlotte Duvall...

Lea Webb (D-Binghamton) said in a statement about the bill she introduced Wednesday. “It is important to ensure that the money we invest in economic development is actually being spent here.” The legislation is the latest state-level proposal aimed at reining in AI as emerging technology becomes more embedded in government programs,...

    By backing Cannes Film Festival opener 'Jeanne du Barry' and courting its mercurial star, the Gulf nation is continuing its post-Khashoggi push for legitimacy in the global film community. So far, it’s working.Earlier this year, Johnny Depp was given a VIP tour of AlUla (pronounced AL-yoo-lah), the historic region of Saudi Arabia being heavily touted as both a tourism and filming destination. His guide: Saudi culture minister Prince Badr (or, in full, Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Farhan Al Saudi), a well-connected royal and governor of AlUla’s Royal Commission. “Good times,” Badr posted on Instagram alongside a photo...

    Marlene Dietrich passed away on the 6th of May, 1992, after a life of glamour as a sex symbol and one long marriage. She knew how things work between men and women.

    A day after the Writers Guild of America’s May 1 call for a strike, a dozen or so members of the Set Decorators Society gathered to share intel.

Others nodded, echoing sentiments that they could not afford to keep all their staff in the face of what they expected to be a lengthy strike. “We’d been saving up, but every time we get...

    A lot has changed since 2007, and the very medium that inspired the strike — streaming — may help insulate viewers from the effects of the walkout.Hollywood writers are on strike for the first time in 15 years. But the dramatically changed landscape that inspired the walkout — an industry that’s focus-shifted to streaming content — is also going to make it tougher for viewers to even notice their protest, hardship and sacrifice. At least in the near term. This isn’t to weigh in on the writers’ reasons for striking. As their outraged reactions to the current round of talks...
