If you are in the mood for car chases and alien invasions, I have good news: I count no fewer than four alien-battling blockbusters this spring. If, however, you are in the mood for more substantial fare, you may be disappointed. Here’s what’s coming up!
You might be getting old if…Former Missouri First Lady and U.S. Senator JEAN CARNAHAN has penned a new book, A Little Help from My Friends…and Other Hilarious Tales of Graying Graciously. The book is a collection of 30-some essays that discuss everything from malls, manners and makeup to birthdays, bras and beauty secrets. One of the highlights is a list called ‘You Might Be Getting Old If…’ in which the 77-year-old author suggests that waiters automatically serving you decaf coffee and grocery clerks offering to help you carry one tiny sack are definite signs.
Sneak peek, times two…Filmmakers KEN BURNS and LYNN NOVICK will be in town Sept. 19 to offer a preview of their latest documentary, Prohibition, at the new Peabody Opera House—a rare opportunity to see the venue prior to its gala opening on Oct. 1. Burns and Novick will lead the screening and discussion of the film, which documents the rise and fall of the Constitution’s 18th Amendment prohibiting the sale and manufacture of alcohol. We’re told St. Louis, with its rich brewing history, has a prominent role in the film. For tickets, call 800- 745-3000 or visit ticketmaster. com. The six-hour documentary will premiere on Nine PBS Oct. 2 to 4.
Inking a deal…Bravo network executive ANDY COHEN reportedly is getting seven figures for his memoir due out next summer. Cohen, a Clayton H.S. alum, is the host of Watch What Happens: Live and oversees the network’s hit shows like Top Chef and The Real Housewives of Orange County. In one interview, Cohen described the yetuntitled book as a memoir, of sorts. “…from growing up in front of the TV as a kid in St. Louis to my years at CBS News, all the way up to today. The stories I’ve been saving up are funny and improbable and really define who I am today.”
BRENTWOODCOACH: KEITH HERRING, FIRST YEAR
The question is as much a part of St. Louis as the Arch, gooey butter cake, concretes, sweating through your shirt at Busch Stadium and rush-hour traffic on Highway 40. It’s unique to St. Louis because St. Louisans love their high schools. It’s something that connects us to one another. It’s tradition. It’s family. It’s also sports.
Autumn is right around the corner, and this September seems to be more about thrills than Oscars. In fact, the entire fall movie season seems surprisingly light—and surprisingly scary. Maybe Hollywood is reacting to our need to escape a dismal economy? This is the autumn of the thriller, and I, for one, couldn’t be happier.
Musical: “The Little Mermaid”
In theaters now…Zookeeper, starring lovable everyman KEVIN JAMES, makes its nationwide debut today, but St. Louisans got a sneak peak last week. The actor attended the movie’s red-carpet premiere at the Saint Louis Zoo, and shared the spotlight with some local celebs and a few of the animals from the Children’s Zoo. The Saint Louis Zoo is the only zoo in the country to host the film’s premiere.
It may not officially be spring yet, but the weather thinks it’s spring and so does the cineplex. Awards season is over, and now it’s time to kick back with a trough of popcorn and a bucket of soda and watch some stuff blow up. An ongoing theme in this spring’s movie releases seems to be changing the course of fate/stopping the dominoes from falling…hmmm.
Save the date…Comedian CONAN O’BRIEN has been confirmed as the opening act for the 23rd annual Bob Costas benefit for Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, to be held April 2 at the Fox Theatre. O’Brien, whose new late-night talk show debuts on TBS next month, will share the stage with headliner FAITH HILL.
It’s hard to believe summer has come and gone. The kids are back in school, the temperatures’ dropping and the cineplex is brooding. Gone are the days of eating your body weight in popcorn and watching stuff blow up. It’s awards season. And frankly, after some of this summer’s action offerings (The Expendables, Takers), I could use some headier stuff. Here’s what to look forward to:
Fall in St. Louis brings a bounty of fairs and festivals. Nearly every weekend beginning in September and continuing through November features art shows, music fests and family-friendly events. Whether you have a yen for crafts, cultural performances, wine or blues—or you’re simply craving funnel cake—our area is hopping with activity.
It may seem a tad early to think about what to wear when the weather cools. But before you know it, you’ll be trading your sundresses for sweaters and boots, your shorts for layers and leggings. Take advantage of the preview that August provides, and make your list of must-haves early. Maybe we’ll feel cooler just thinking about the days when we’ll need a sweater. It seems far away now, but we can plan, can’t we?
