In entertainment news, Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” hits theaters in wide release today. If his prediction is to be believed, this will mark the penultimate film by the Jackie Brown director.
The film takes place in 1969 Hollywood during a time of cultural and social change. It follows Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, respectively), actors trying to make it in an industry they no longer recognize. The film also stars Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate. (Of course, Tate, a Hollywood actress at the time, was married to infamous director, Roman Polanski. She was brutally murdered by the Manson Family on August 9, 1969.)
The film’s cast also includes Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, and Maya Hawke, daughter of Kill Bill star Uma Thurman. Hawke recently played the role of Robyn in Season 3 of the Netflix hit, Stranger Things.
According to Indiewire, Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, shows in 70mm in only five theaters across the country. One those theaters is ArcLight Hollywood. The ArcLight is adjacent to the Cinerama Dome, which was featured in the film. The Cinerama Dome is a part of the ArcLight complex. ArcLight showtimes are shown on their website, arclightcinemas.com.

Apart from the occasional directorial flourish, you d hardly recognise this character вЂ“ and plot-driven Elmore Leonard adaptation, with its laidback middle-aged leads, as the work of Quentin Tarantino the man who had previously made the pyrotechnic Pulp Fiction .
I see what you mean. However, the ‘pyrotechnic Pulp Fiction’ was very dialogue heavy, and Once Upon a Time is no different. Perhaps we’ve come to expect too much after all these years?
