City planners this week granted several key concessions to the developers of Plaza Pacifica, a proposed 600,000-square-foot shopping center that would be the largest commercial project in San Clemente. On a 6 to 0 vote, the Planning Commission agreed Tuesday night to ease the restrictions on a 145-unit residential portion of the project and allow it to move forward without being tied to construction in the commercial center. Commissioner John Tengdin was absent.

Los Angeles Auto Show co-owner Lisa Kaz and filmmaker Jonathan Yudis have their work cut out for them as producers of a proposed $12-million movie about the life of Indian mystic Paramahansa Yogananda, who introduced America to yoga in the 1920s. Kaz attends Ananda Worldwide and Yudis the Self-Realization Fellowship, California-based religious organizations that have long been at odds, although they share the same meditation techniques and spiritual master: Yogananda. "Since our master was all about harmony and compassion, it's a shame that there is still so much bitterness between Ananda and the fellowship," Kaz said.

In terms of graphic horror and shocking visual images, there's never been a war movie quite like Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan." The film, which opens today, is a far cry from the majority of war films--especially the propaganda movies of World War II--which were made to boost the country's spirits and encourage young men to enlist. But over the decades, there have been numerous films that attempted to capture the intensity, carnage, fear and unbridled heroism of war.

Mastro's suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, alleges that the city has failed to adequately analyze traffic problems that would be created by the Edwards Theatre Circuit Inc. project.

Ceremonies to mark the start of construction of Edwards Cinema Plaza, a 12-screen movie theater and two restaurants, will take place at 4 p.m. Monday at Foothill Boulevard and B Street. The City Council approved the controversial project 1989, but it was delayed by lawsuits challenging the completeness of the city's environmental studies. A court ruling late last year cleared the way for construction of the theater complex, which will have nearly 3,000 seats.

Developers will install a traffic signal at the entrance to the new Metro Pointe Shopping Center under construction on South Coast Drive, despite opposition from residents who live nearby. Residents of the Greenbrook neighborhood complained about the signal, saying it would be too close to Greenbrook Drive and create safety problems by causing traffic backups that would block access to South Coast Drive.
