Netflix is once again crashing the party to the chagrin of Hollywood studios, but this time in an old-school way — by acquiring billboards along the Sunset Strip. The digital streaming Goliath has quietly bought up prime billboard space along the mile-and-a-half-long section of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood that is among the most coveted advertising properties in the country. Netflix in recent months has purchased at least 18 billboard faces from Regency Outdoor Advertising, in a deal estimated to be worth tens of millions of dollars, according to ad industry insiders. The billboards, which are concentrated around Sunset Plaza and the Chateau Marmont, are already Netflix-branded, but some still carry ads for other studios and advertisers because of previous agreements with Regency. Netflix is expected to eventually use the billboards to give its own TV shows and movies a big push.
‘Slash: Raised On The Sunset Strip’ Is Platitudinal Bio-Doc Of Attitudinal Guns N’ Roses Guitarist
- Trailers & Videos - Rotten Tomatoes
Sunset Boulevard in LA County is an exposed point break that has consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the north. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west. Best around low tide.
Richard Pryor: Live on Sunset Strip
And Messes With The Director. Is '47 Meters Down' on Netflix? For guitarists of my age — which I try to avoid mentioning — no guitar was more desired, more hallowed than the Gibson Les Paul.
At the beginning of this film, Richard Pryor is clearly nervous. He is back on a stage for the first time since he set himself on fire. That means he is working with the stand-up comedian's greatest handicap, the audience's awareness of his vulnerability. Whatever else they do, comics must project utter confidence in their material, and when Pryor had his accident, he also had his whole hip image blown out from under him.
