An original 35mm camera used to shoot “Star Wars” just sold at an auction of Debbie Reynolds’ belongings for $625,000. This is a record for a “Star Wars” memorabilia item. Reynolds’ personal effects made for a HUGE sale recently of LOADS of big-time Hollywood artifacts (including Marilyn Monroe’s dress from “The Seven Year Itch” and Barbra Streisand’s dress from “Funny Girl”.

I forget that Reynolds is Carrie Fisher’s mother, so she may have gotten her hands on some cool “Star Wars” stuff. Turns out it was record-breaking.

Movie theater chains are kicking around the idea of allowing “Tweet Seats” in their cinemas. That’s right, seats designated for people to use Twitter during the screening. Good news – they’re in the back row. This is obviously desperate cinema chains making desperate moves to keep people coming out to the theater instead of staying home with a DVD, Blu-Ray, Netflix, Hulu, HBOGO, YouTube, Redbox, AppleTV, etc.

By the way, if you’re going to annoy the shit out of everyone, use @movieguysla!

I’m not sure about a lot of things here. I’m not sure who built this house, based on Carl Fredricksen’s in the film “Up”. And I’m not sure if the folks who bought it are awesome or lunatics. Look at these photos and decide for yourself.

The house is built in Utah, it’s fully functional, and sold for $400,000. That won’t get you a BATHROOM in Los Angeles…!
