Farmers Market on Lancaster Blvd

Lancaster, CA. August 10, 2011 – Antelope Valley residents and visitors alike are invited to enjoy the ever-growing Farmers’ Market on The BLVD every Thursday from 3—8pm.

“Whether you stop by after work to pick up fresh produce, or spend the evening out on the town enjoying the atmosphere, the farmers’ market has something for everyone,” remarked Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris.

The year-round event has now grown past its original boundaries of Date to Ehrlich Avenue, with vendor booths stretching along The BLVD nearly to Fig Ave. Approximately a dozen vendors supply fresh fruits and vegetables, joining more than ten vendors offering pre-packaged and prepared foods. A sprinkling of arts and crafts vendors add a street-festival flair to the market.

In addition, many of the Farmers’ Markets have been enhanced by live music at BeX’s Bandstand stage beginning at 6:00 p.m. Upcoming groups include “Runaway Train” on August 18, as well as “Nuns for Fun” and “The Cruisers” September 22.

For more information, please visit www.cityoflancasterca.org. Vendors interested in joining the farmers’ market may contact Angela Riley in the Parks, Recreation and Arts Department at 723-6074 or complete an application online @ www.rawinspiration.com.

New Laemmle Cinema Brings Hollywood Flair to The BLVD

Lancaster, CA. August 12, 2011 – Cameras flashed as VIPs arrived to the red carpet of Lancaster’s new Laemmle BLVD Cinemas. Last night’s Hollywood premiere-style gala marked the grand opening of the luxury movie dinner theatre in downtown Lancaster.

“This is huge,” noted Mayor R. Rex Parris. “The BLVD has truly come alive. Tonight, we also have a Farmers’ Market and summer concert taking place here on The BLVD. And this is a weeknight!”

Guests received the VIP treatment including photo opportunities and interviews on the red carpet, followed by a beautiful reception and ribbon-cutting. Guests then proceeded to one of the cinema’s three luxury theatres to view a private screening.  All proceeds from the grand opening benefited local non-profit Desert Haven Enterprises.

“This is the biggest day in the renaissance of The BLVD,” declared InSite Development partner, Scott Ehrlich. “It has been wonderful working with the City of Lancaster, and I’m thrilled to see yet another one of our collaborations come to fruition.”

The new luxury cinema, which opens to the public today, boasts three screens, each theatre seating between 46 and 58 patrons. The intimately sized auditoriums, complete with overstuffed, fully reclining chairs with leg rests and push-away tables, set the atmosphere for a one-of-a-kind experience.

The cinema complex also offers a full dinner menu, where patrons can order food to take into the theatre with them. In addition, a unique assortment of wine and beer is available.

 

“We are proud to be affiliated with the new BLVD Cinema in downtown Lancaster, ” noted Greg Laemmle, President of Laemmle Theatres.  “This is one of the most uniquely designed art-house theatres we’ve seen, with all digital projection, luxury reserved seating, and a more robust cinema café menu.”

The theatres boast state-of-the-art equipment including phenomenal sound systems and Christie projectors — the “Rolls-Royce of projectors.” The cinema will focus on showing first-run films, including independent, international and art house films.

Most would think the posh new cinema would be pricey. Incredibly, this is not the case. Tickets will be offered at $11 for primetime tickets and $8 for children, seniors, and non-primetime showings.

“We are thrilled to have this classy new addition to The BLVD,” said Vice Mayor Ron Smith. “It’s exactly the type of attraction we need. What’s even more impressive is the fact that this high-end arts theatre offers mid-range ticket prices.”

The cinema complex includes Forge, an Anthropologie-inspired store offering a wide array of unique products from apparel to kitchen and bath staples. A great place to find interesting gifts, Forge boasts unique items such as a gourmet selection of hot sauces and olive oils as well as books and magazines. And, like the cinema, Forge is priced to fit any lifestyle.

“The concept is to create the perfect evening out,” said developer Scott Erhlich. “Now you can take your date to dinner and a movie at the same location, and even enjoy a little bit of shopping while you’re there.”

“The addition of this cinema brings more entertainment choices to The BLVD,” said Mayor Parris. “Not only can you enjoy an evening at the cinema, but you can also take in a concert right next door at LPAC. The BLVD has truly been transformed into an amazing destination.”
