Though the story of Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero’s enduring, idiosyncratic friendship at the center of James Franco’s big screen adaptation of The Disaster Artist began in San Francisco, it no way negates the fact that Franco set out to tell an L.A. story–its DNA built upon of the Hollywood dream.
The majestic Hollywood American Legion Post 43, located at 2035 N. Highland Ave., was built in 1928 and boasts a 480-seat cinema, the historic Art Deco Bar where Humphrey Bogart used to hang out, a Memorial Shrine, lecture hall, billiard room and other various time-worn lounges. Parts of the building are currently undergoing restoration, but on Saturday, Nov. 18, it opened its doors to the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles' Casino Moderne night.
Of all the important dates in the Back to the Future trilogy perhaps no other is more crucial — except for the day that the Flux Capacitor was invented — than Nov. 12, 1955. It's the night of the infamous Hill Valley thunderstorm that stopped the clock in the town square's historic clock tower. It's also the same evening that wild-eyed scientist Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) sent 1980s teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) back to the future.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
