Empire Films Red Carpet Scene At Rialto Square Theater

Fox returned to the Rialto Square Theater to film a red carpet scene for the Empire TV show.  The theater was packed with 400 extras as Empire took over Van Buren St.  The street had to be blocked off and numerous trucks and trailers were there for the filming.

The Herald News reports that crew members stopped at Gji’s Sweet Shoppe, located across the street from the theater, to buy Taraji P. Henson gummy bears, her favorite treat.

Empire is not the first to film at the Rialto.  “The Babe” a 1992 movie about Babe Ruth, filmed scenes at the theater along with “Stir of Echoes” a 1999 film starring Kevin Bacon.

The Rialto Square Theater opened it 1926 as a vaudeville movie palace.  The Rialto is one of the most beautifully designed theaters in the world.

The amazing chandelier in the rotunda is called “The Duchess.”  The crystal chandelier in one of the largest in the nation, measuring 20 ft in length with 200 fixtures and 250 lights.
I see why Empire chose the Rialto Square Theater as the show continues to motivate us to dream big, sparkle more and shine bright!

Fan Edit Teaser for Alien: Covenant (2017) Prometheus Sequel – using Alien: Isolation footage
Posted by Alien: Covenant on Saturday, February 27, 2016

Production for the new Alien’s movie is set to start in March.

Despite the success of 2012’s Prometheus many Alien fans complained about the movie failing to include the franchise’s original creatures except at the end when Deacon appears.  Alien Covenant will not have this problem as Ridley Scott has already informed fans that the new film will feature H.R. Giger’s Xenomorph in its various terrifying forms.
Scott explained to The Wrap, “We’ll have them all, egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy.”
Alien Covenant connects directly with Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal science fiction work.  The film begins with colony ship Covenant on a voyage to a planet on the far side of the galaxy.  
Covenant then finds what they believe to be an unchartered paradise yet it is actually a very dangerous world.  The film is set to release on October 6, 2017!
