Blair’s joyful creativity―her eye-appealing designs and exuberant color palette―endure in numerous media, including classic Disney animated films, such as CinderellaAlice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan, and theme park attractions at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, most notably “it’s a small world.”

Win a pair of tickets to The Moth Inaugural SF GrandSLAM Championship!

The Moth presents the GrandSLAM, a battle of wits and words -- fierce, hilarious, heartbreaking and all points between. Listen as ten StorySLAM champs tell tales of being out of their element: the freak, the foreigner, dressed for the opera at the clambake, out of the loop, the only person in the loop, the voice of dissent, the lonely fool. Outsider, interloper, odd man out. The black sheep, the chatty monk, the juror with a doubt. On this night, using words as weapons, they battle to determine San Francisco's first-ever Moth GrandSLAM Story Champion.

This event at the Castro Theatre is sold out - but we have 14 pairs of tickets to give away! Want to go? All you have to do to enter is answer this question:

In-SecretWant to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of the new movie In Secret?

Romantic thriller In Secret, set for February 21 release, stars Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange and is based on Emile Zola’s scandalous novel Thérèse Raquin. LD Entertainment financed it and Roadside made the deal just before the film’s Toronto premiere. Charlie Stratton made his directing debut, and Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon and William Horberg produced. Set in 1860s Paris, In Secret is a tale of obsessive love, adultery and revenge. Therese (Olsen) is a sexually repressed beautiful young woman trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton), by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (Lange). Her husband’s friend (Isaac) catches her eye and things go all kinds of wrong from there.
