Claremont Insider: Goings On

Goings On

David Allen has a column in today's Daily Bulletin about his trip to the newly opened Laemmle Claremont 5 Theatre. Allen noticed something we also noticed yesterday - it's really hard to find.

Because construction on the rest of the Village West Expansion is still ongoing, you have to wend your way through a narrow walk from Oberlin to find the entrance. The official address is 450 W. 2nd St., but 2nd is closed off from the construction, hence the Oberlin approach.

Allen also mentioned that the theatre isn't strictly an art house and that the mix of mainstream Hollywood movies and art films will depend on ticket sales.


In other local news, the City of Claremont's website posted a notice that Castleberry Foods has recalled it's Castleberry's Beef Stew, which was distributed at Claremont's Joslyn Senior Center by the Los Angeles County Food Bank. There is a concern over possible botulism contamination.

The city's post states:

Botulism can cause the following symptoms: general weakness, dizziness, double-vision, and trouble speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension and constipation may also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek medical attention.

Participants with any questions or concerns about this recall should visit the Castleberry's website at or call the Castleberry's consumer hotline at 1-888-203-8446.
