'Puss in Boots' Opens Oct. 28
Check out Antonio Banderas as the voice of Mr. Puss in Boots in this DreamWorks animated film about the legendary cat. CC has been asking and asking and asking to see this movie, and now that the billboards are everywhere, I'm hearing about it even more. This movie, which also features the voices of Salma Hayek and Zach Galifianakis (love him!), is the story of Puss's adventures before he meets Shrek, Donkey and the gang.
Theatricum Boo-tanicum Halloween Extravaganza on Oct. 28
The family-friendly Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga Canyon is hosting its inaugural Halloween party on Friday. Visitors will find a haunted house, game booths, live music from Peter Alsop, Many Distant Cities, the Matt Van Winkle Band and Tommy Santee Klaws. Kids can also hear ghost stories and carve pumpkins. Keep an eye out for "zombie thespians," according to the theater's website. (Friday, Oct. 28; 4-10 p.m.; kids 5 and under - Free, kids ages 5-12 - $5, adults - $20)
While the animals might not know what all the costumed fuss is about, kids are sure to get a kick out of all the Halloween activities on offer at the L.A. Zoo this weekend. From trick-or-treating to face-painting to creepy creature encounters (spiders! snakes! did I mention spiders?!), there's lots to do for little ones. They can even check out snow leopards, gorillas, elephants and others chewing on pumpkin treats. And speaking of Puss in Boots, he and Kitty Softpaws will be on hand from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. each day.
