Glendale Centre Theatre will kick off its 62nd season and usher in 2009 with two performances of “Barefoot in the Park” on New Year’s Eve. It’s a favorite of theater regulars, said Tim Dietlein, who shares the executive producer title with his wife, Brenda Dietlein. “It’s a Neil Simon comedy and always very funny, and it’s a classic movie, too, that had Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, and it’s just one of our staples. We do it about every 12 years,” Tim Dietlein said.

Robert Blechl CIVIC CENTER -- When Burbank City Manager Bud Ovrom said "These are the best of times and the worst of times," he wasn't talking about the French Revolution. Instead, Ovrom was offering his own bittersweet take on Thomas Hoefel taking over for David Newsham as Burbank Chief of Police. At 9 a.m. Monday, Newsham passed his badge to 20-year department veteran Hoefel. The former captain's symbol of leadership was pinned to his uniform by his 11-year-old son, Keith.

“The Scarlet Pimpernel” is Baroness Orczy’s classic tale of courage, adventure and romance, set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. It’s reincarnation as — would you believe — a musical comedy, is a perfect match for the talents and the superb production values of the Glendale Centre Theatre. Anyone who fell in love with the 1935 movie version and Leslie’s Howard’s totally-to-swoon-for Sir Percy Blakeney won’t need to make comparisons.

And so the Christopher Nolan rendition of Batman - started in “Batman Begins” (2005) and continued in “The Dark Knight” (2008) - comes to an end, in “The Dark Knight Rises.” It stands proudly alongside its older siblings, as good as (or better than) “Batman Begins” and better than “The Dark Knight.” I realize I'm in the minority in considering the middle film as the weakest of the three, but - unlike the first and (I anticipate) the new entry - I have never once felt the impulse to rewatch it. Too many action threads being juggled and intercut in the final stretch, and - more heresy - an initially riveting performance by Heath Ledger that overstays its welcome.
