In light of the popularity of the Ealing comedies, it's easy to forget that Britain was producing some seriously good noir films after World War II. The five films represented at Rialto's Best of British Noir sum up the class tensions and working-class struggles that defined the postwar period. It's an educational and, more important, entertaining series. Nuart Theatre, 11272 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles. Various times Friday. www .

Encino will open World Series play Friday against host Washington, Pa.

On Wednesday, The Times' Op-Ed page published a plea from the owner of the Rialto , a little movie theater in Grayling, Mich., for the movie studios to help small-town theaters make the transition to digital projection. While we didn't go into depth on the cost in the piece, it is an expensive proposition. Projectors are just part of the cost, author Jordan Stancil told us during editing. A cinema that already had a high-quality sound system and modernized screen components might be able to spend about $40,000.

The Rialto High Knights, in their inaugural season, won their first game, 21-14, over host Burroughs in a nonleague football game Thursday night. The winless Indians (0-6) were undone by Rialto wide receiver Jason Carnell, who blocked two punts and caught a third-quarter touchdown pass despite playing with a cast to protect a dislocated finger. Carnell's second blocked punt set up Bryan Rubin's six-yard touchdown run with 23 seconds left in the first half and boosted the Knights' lead to 13-0.

As his wife waited in his patrol car, a veteran Rialto police officer was shot and killed early Monday by man who later barricaded himself in a house for five hours before surrendering, police said. Another officer and a resident of the house were wounded. Sgt. Gary Wolfley, 31, a 12-year veteran of the force, was the first policeman to die in the line of duty in Rialto, a city of 53,000 residents about 55 miles east of Los Angeles. Rialto Police Lt.
Home is a green concrete tepee on a boulevard of barred buildings and weedy lots. Rudy Rios arrived late at the Wigwam Motel--50 years after it became a novelty stopping place for families driving west to Los Angeles. He got here the way so many guests now do, through hardship, after a divorce left him homeless. "Sometimes," Rios said, "you come out with nothing." The Wigwam would be just another low-rent motel on Foothill Boulevard, at the Rialto and San Bernardino border, if not for its striking architecture and iconic status on historic Route 66. The 20 tepees left over from 1950 are all 30 feet tall and clustered like an Indian village.

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court has shielded private lawyers and possibly others working for cities, counties and school districts from being sued for violating the rights of citizens and employees. A 9-0 decision announced Tuesday blocks a lawsuit against a Southern California attorney who was accused of ordering an illegal search of a firefighter's house. A judge had shielded the fire chief of the Inland Empire city of Rialto and two fire department inspectors from being sued for the allegedly illegal search under the rule that gives public employees a “qualified immunity” from suits when they are doing their jobs.

All that was missing Saturday were the searchlights as thousands filed through theater lobby doors to get a rare glimpse of the grand old movie palaces that line Broadway in downtown Los Angeles. "This is like discovering treasure in an old tomb," marveled Venice architect Peter Culley as he stepped from the opulent 2,000-seat Los Angeles Theatre, which opened in 1931. "This is the first time I've been here. We're really surprised because it doesn't give the impression of being this large from the street.

Like many residents in and around Fontana, 33-year-old Regina Ignacio was awoken early Wednesday morning by shaking. "I was in bed. ... I knew it was an earthquake," Ignacio said.

" The magnitude 4.4 earthquake struck at 1:35 a.m. and was centered about three miles north of Fontana and about five miles northwest of Rialto. There were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage. Some residents said items fell off their dressers, while others took to Twitter to describe minor damage inside their homes.

CBS should give "The Van Dyke Show" and "Annie McGuire" (new) time slots in which to establish themselves without the competition of "Growing Pains" and "Head of the Class." They are good new shows and can become popular if they aren't victimized by the ratings game. J. A. Adams, Rialto

Rialto schools chief Harold Cebrun denied Friday that he had an "intimate relationship" with a district accountant accused of embezzling $1.8 million after photos emerged that he says show the pair hugging and him giving her a brief kiss. Nutritional services accountant Judith Oakes, 48, was arrested in August after being seen on video stuffing cash in her bra. She pleaded not guilty Wednesday to 16 felonies and was being held in lieu of $1.8-million bail in what authorities have called the largest white-collar crime in city history.

Usually it's the school bully who steals lunch money from the kids. But in Rialto, it's allegedly the accountant hired to keep an eye on the lunch money. When accountant Judith Oakes was arrested on suspicion of embezzling from the school district's nutrition services department this summer -- allegedly caught on surveillance tape stuffing cash in her bra -- officials said they were staggered when they were told that as much as $3.16 million might be missing. Oakes faces the prospect of embezzlement and grand theft charges, but the fallout from the lunch money episode could continue as law enforcement agencies and the state Department of Education investigate why the loss was not spotted sooner.
