“`Los Angeles mayor proclaimed on Tuesday:  La La Land Day – as acrobats suspended by ropes, dancing their way across the outside walls of City Hall.  Mayor Eric Garcetti proclaimed the honor for the musical that claimed six Academy Awards in February, and put a spotlight on city locales with elaborate choreographed numbers.

“`Garcetti played the piano, while a band played a medley of songs from the film, including City of Stars. He also honored the movie’s Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle, composer Justin Hurwitz, and producers of the film. The City of Angels is a clear backdrop to the plot of realized Hollywood dreams by a engaging couple.

“`La La Land festivities extends to Long Beach, where the Blind Donkey has obtained a full-size Seb’s neon sign. It was the fictional jazz spot named after Ryan Gosling’s character in the flick. Plus, vintage lamp posts will be installed this weekend at Hermosa Beach Pier in South Bay, where Ryan danced and sang in one memorable scene of the musical.

“`The motion picture received a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations, and was briefly tagged as the Best Picture winner, before the actual champ, Moonlight, was correctly announced.

“` The elaborate event coincided with its cinematic release on DVD and Blu-ray.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
