They were planning to spend nearly $500,000 on a home theater. What was an additional $35,000 to show first-run movies? When Ken and Carol Schultz began remodeling their 10,000-square-foot San Diego-area residence, they spared no expense on a screening room. The couple tricked it out with custom-built armchairs with heat and massage functions, and a Runco 3-D-capable projector with a price of about $100,000. But the most unusual feature of the theater is a $35,000 device that offers 24-hour rentals of first-run movies.

EXCLUSIVE: Jamie Foxx and Ken Jeong  have both subverted ethnic stereotypes to great comedic effect. Now the two are teaming up. In an unusual, if informal, partnership, Foxx and Jeong have each agreed to star in movies written by the other, says Foxx, the former “In Living Color” star. Foxx has agreed to take a lead role in a new movie Jeong will produce called “After Prom.” The buddy comedy  is about two old high school friends, one “a jock and the other a cool dude,” as Foxx puts it, who must now steer their teenage children through their own prom gantlet.

Grace Bradley Boyd, an actress who came to Hollywood as a Paramount contract player in the early 1930s but abandoned her career after marrying the love of her life, William "Hopalong Cassidy" Boyd, has died. She was 97. Boyd, the keeper of the "Hoppy" flame after the death of her western movie-hero husband of 35 years in 1972, died of age-related causes on her birthday Tuesday at her home in Dana Point, said Jane Mak, a longtime close friend. As Grace Bradley, Boyd appeared in 35 films, including "Too Much Harmony," starring Bing Crosby; "The Big Broadcast of 1938," with W.C. Fields and Bob Hope; and "Come on Marines" with Richard Arlen and Ida Lupino.
