Petition to Board of Directors, American Cinematheque, Daniel Halden (Mitch O'Farrell's Office), Registry of Charitable Trusts

Save the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre

As members of the American Cinematheque and patrons and fans of its programming, we demand transparency about the proposed sale to Netflix of the Egyptian Theatre and of the financial status of the non-profit.  The American Cinematheque is a membership-based non-profit organization that owns and operates the landmark Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, a building that was gifted to the Cinematheque by the City of Los Angeles for the symbolic price of $1. We understand that the theater is held in the public trust. Currently operating without an Executive Director and with its charitable status listed as “Delinquent” due to incomplete tax filings dating back to 2015, the Cinematheque’s board of directors has apparently offered the Egyptian Theatre for sale to Netflix, the employer of board member Ted Sarandos. The California Attorney General is currently investigating the American Cinematheque for its failure to file required financial information, its claim to have lost this information due to staff incompetence, illness and computer problems, and two unexplained outstanding loans to board members. (PDF link.) In light of the ongoing financial mismanagement by the American Cinematheque board resulting in potential loss of its non-profit status, the board’s failure to hire a new Executive Director, the potential conflict of interest should board member Ted Sarandos’ employer Netflix purchase the theater, and the failure to inform the members that a financial crisis might require sale of the theater and threaten the very existence of the non-profit, we the undersigned call for a halt to any sale, and a public meeting at the Egyptian Theatre where representatives of the non-profit will explain the situation, take and respond to questions, and engage in a free, open and transparent dialogue moving forward about the future of this treasured membership-based non-profit and its sole asset, the Egyptian Theatre.  The future of the American Cinematheque and the Egyptian Theatre should be determined in an open conversation that includes the members and a qualified Executive Director, and not in secret by the board of directors and Netflix.

Petition to Warner Brothers

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ('90) Special Edition

One the finest movies I've seen as a child was the first live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie released into theaters March 1990. Fans enjoyed it and it amazed me to see their favorite superheroes come to life on the big screen then watched it several times on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray. Since I saw it on DVD, I kinda went curious on the features it has and no others were made for it, so I'm making this petition to ask the company to make a special collector's edition of TMNT (90) with features fans like to see: Deleted/alternate/extended scenes Audio commentary with director Steve Barron Script to Screen Comparison TV spots Partners in Kryme "T-U-R-T-L-E Power" Music Video Hi Tek 3 f/ Ya Kid K "Spin That Wheel" Music Video Interviews with the cast & crew Behind the scenes footage Turtle Costume Tests Production Stills Remembering Jim Henson Lean, Green and On The Screen: A TMNT Retrospective featurette Downloadable Movie Adaptation Comic Book by IDW Publishing Misc. I know some fans like this movie better than the Michael Bay produced flicks, but who cares what they think? They're nice and this TMNT live-action flick from '90 is one of the best in my books. We all want that movie magic back in this decade, but we'll have to see it to believe it. From all I've learned, it does have elements from both the comics and the cartoon and I think it's very swell for fans like me or you no matter what they say or think around this decade. We all want to know how they've bring the Turtles to life in the first place whether in a special collector's edition, director's cut or extended cut of the movie anyway you'd like. Please sign this petition to get New Line/Warner Bros. to make this happen and we can't be disappointed as shellheads. Sign and share now, dudes and dudettes! #TMNT90

To Continue Releasing Movies & TV Shows On VHS Again

The only problem i can think about is that the VHS Tapes Media has been long forgotten and that movies since then have been released on the more current DVD's & Blu-Ray's & also 4K Ultra-HD's along with Digital HD's too, But the main problem in the Home Media Industry in my Opinion is that the VHS Media are no longer available in Stores & that they are not being sold along with the more Current DVD's & Blu-Ray's along with 4K Ultra-HD's & Digital HD's & i think they should be sold together with the Current 4 Movie Format Brands & if the VHS was included again we would have VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray & 4K Ultra-HD & also Digital HD as it should be but until i know that the companys who made the brand in the first place known as JVC would come to their senses and continue to produce video formats for movie studios & to continue releasing movies on VHS again & then & only then would my life be Fully Complete for accomplishing a petition of bringing back this Original Video Format back to the public to continue releasing movies on that Format again would be enough for me but until then i feel that Originalness in home media has not been Fully Completed but by 80% Complete due to DVD Blu-Ray & 4K Ultra-HD being currently, sold but as i said until then when VHS comes back, then & only then would movies being released would feel more Original like by 100% ;)   I would Definitely care so much for the VHS Format to come back again to the Home Media Market but since it is currently not. My Life for Collecting Movies in Home Media Format's feels Incomplete & my Accomplishment is to not only return the Video Format back to the Market but to also have Most of All Movies being Released on that particular Format & especially for having Disney Animated Feature Films to be Released on VHS again & also for having Pixar Animated Features to get caught up again with VHS Tape Release's And that would would make me Very Happy & hopefully for Everyone else who cares about them still very happy :) By that i mean that Movies made by the Walt Disney Animation Studios & Pixar Animation Studios to Release All their Films on VHS to make things feel Original when it comes to Buying Movies.
