Owners of the Village Center Westwood development have reached an agreement with Pacific Theatres to operate the project's movie multiplex, officials said Wednesday. Ira Smedra, managing partner for Village Center Westwood, and Neil Hartrecht, vice president of real estate for Pacific Theatres, said they were pleased to be moving forward. The project has been opposed by some Westwood residents for adding more movie seats to an already saturated area.

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.

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.

About halfway through the fun but middling "The Men Who Stare at Goats," I sat up in my enormous puffy orange recliner at the new Gold Class Cinemas and made a promise to myself. "I will never see a movie anywhere else," I thought before sinking back into my seat, pulling my fuzzy blanket over me and reaching for my frosty Manhattan. Maybe I was woozy from staring at George Clooney's chiseled jawline for too long, or maybe it was the warmth of the bourbon, but more likely it was the utterly self-indulgent, unexpected thrill of being coddled in the dark like a baby king that triggered my earnest declaration of loyalty.

Pharmacist Bob Mastro, who last year won a court ruling that forced the city to undertake further environmental studies on a proposed 12-screen movie complex, has filed a new lawsuit challenging the project. 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.

Chantal Akerman's 1975 masterpiece "Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles" is a 3 1/2 -hour movie in which nothing happens. But the nothing that happens is what occupies the vast majority of our waking hours. Set almost entirely in the titular one-bedroom apartment, the movie shadows the quotidian movements of a widowed single mother (Delphine Seyrig) over the course of three days. She boils potatoes, shines shoes, knits a sweater for her uncommunicative teenage son (Jan Decorte)
