DocuWeek is truly one of the great perks of living in L.A. On Friday at the ArcLight, Week 2 of the International Documentary Assn.'s showcase begins, with a new round of films heading into their Oscar qualifying run. A few of my favorites: "My Perestroika," Robin Hessman's remarkably candid look inside life in Russia as seen through the eyes of five friends. It begins with their childhood days and follows them through the collapse of the Soviet Union during their teenage years and the reality of their world today.

A theater fan can cycle through a litany of apprehensions about the new film adaptation of "Les Miserables. " The lead, Jean Valjean, is portrayed by Hugh Jackman, an actor with Broadway chops but whose best-grossing films involve mutants, penguins and fighting robots. Russell Crowe's voice is unproven. Anne Hathaway's face dominates advertisements, but the actress last seen as Catwoman has only a few minutes of screen time, while proven stage talent Samantha Barks' performance as Eponine is getting comparatively little attention.

It's hardly a Trump Tower-like effort to put together a hot night life space. Sure, there's the licensing, staffing, furnishing and promoting, but it's usually something that can be done in a couple months. Unless, of course, you inherit a monster like the one that sits at 1439 Ivar Ave. in Hollywood. Nestled behind Amoeba Music, across from the ArcLight Cinemas structure, the yawning, 18,000-square-foot space has seen several incarnations come and go, and now it's been reinvented again as the super club Lure.

Yet another unhappy viewer Re "Landmark, Meet Backlash" (June 14): I recently visited the new Landmark theater in West Los Angeles with high expectations. I went to see "Paris, Je T'aime," which was playing in theater No. 4. The very nice usher took me to my seat, which was the last row of the front section, where I usually sit at the ArcLight or Century City AMC. From this seat you had to look almost straight up to see the screen. Before I said a word, the usher said, "I know, we get this all the time.

In the May 24 edition of Calendar Weekend, we offered a preview of the new Landmark theater in West L.A. ("In This Corner ... "). It was several days before the grand opening, and construction was still going on. Though we had concerns, particularly about the layout, it looked promising and we took a couple of good-natured swipes at its chief rival for discriminating movie butts, the ArcLight. The theater has been open two weeks, and we thought it only fair to print some of the criticism offered by customers.
