Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

A portion of Sunset Boulevard will be closed tonight for street resurfacing, a first in 30 years for this stretch of street. The full closure will be from 8 p.m. tonight to 10 a.m. Saturday morning between Highland and La Brea avenues. “I’m proud that we’re finally re-paving this stretch of Sunset Boulevard, but it may inconvenience some people,” said Councilmember Tom LaBonge at press conference today. “City crews will work through the night to finish the job as quickly as possible and re-open the boulevard on Saturday morning.”

Additionally, Hollywood Blvd. will be closed from Highland to La Brea for the filming of the movie "Zombieland." However, this closure begins at 3 a.m. and continues to 10 a.m.

And if you thought that was it, you're wrong. Once "Zombieland" finishes, eastbound lanes on Hollywood Blvd. between Highland and Orange will remain closed until 6 p.m. for the premiere of "Earth."
