It's a big night for downtown Los Angeles, more specifically L.A. Live.

  • 6 p.m.: "This Is It," the Michael Jackson documentary, premieres (some wonder if some movie premieres will move from Hollywood to downtown. The movie 2012 will premiere here next week.).
  • 7 p.m.: Lakers and Clippers open basketball season at the Staples Center
  • 9 p.m.: L.A. Live's newest addition, Regal Cinemas opens to the public. The 14-screen, 3,772 seat theater will play This Is It will play on all screens through at least this weekend with shows starting approximately every 10 minutes.

Eric Richardson at blogdowntown has an excellent guide to the theatre with prices, parking, etc.
