Film critics have joked for years that if Martin Scorsese had made it through boyhood without being whacked over and over by a nun with a ruler he might never have made "Mean Streets" and "Taxi Driver." So it comes as no surprise that "Saved!," an irreverent comedy set in a Christian high school, is the product of a filmmaker who went to a school where listening to popular music was so verboten that for the senior prom, the school had a puppet show instead of a dance.

It was a bit of a risk four years ago when American Movie Classics decided to launch an annual movie festival to raise funds for film preservation. AMC president Kate McEnroe recalls that the general consensus at the cable network was: "This is going to be some education process. I don't think people are really aware of how difficult the restoration process is and how costly it is."

It is dark and the air is stifling inside Stage 2 at Churubusco Studios, where the science-fiction film "Total Recall" is being made. Director Paul Verhoeven and his production crew, many of whom worked with him on "RoboCop," are backed into a corner of fabricated red rock catacombs, breathing the thick vanilla-scented prop smoke that is used to soften the image for the camera.

Just about everybody and everything connected to "Wilder Napalm" (selected theaters) is terrible, starting with that title. Don't expect a Vietnam movie. In fact, don't expect a movie. Wilder (Arliss Howard) and Wallace (Dennis Quaid) are estranged brothers in the Cain and Abel mold, with a Stephen King-ish twist. Both have pyro-kinetic powers--they can will fires into roaring life.

It's time for a retake after 100 years in downtown Los Angeles. The historic Tower movie theater at the corner of South Broadway and 8th Street is poised to get a dramatic new lease on life - this time as a concert venue with an indoor-outdoor bar and coffee house along 8th Street and a plush basement nightclub-style bar on the Broadway side. The renovation will cost several million dollars and will take about a year and half, said Shahram Delijani, whose family owns the Tower and three other South Broadway theaters.

On Aug. 5, 1929, a crowd of 10,000 people gathered in downtown Oakland for the long-awaited opening of the H. C. Capwell department store in a massive, brick-fronted building adorned with terra cotta and hailed as a gem of Beaux Arts design. Today, the six-floor store, renamed the Emporium a year ago but still Capwell to many longtime Oaklanders, will reopen after almost 10 months of massive restoration to repair damage from last October's Bay Area earthquake.
