In years past, 97 and 98...we use to have worthwhile discussions about vacations on this board. I think back then we were speculating on the riches that Pixar would bring in the year 2007 or so...
I have a vacation question related to the opening of Nemo. I am going to be taking my children (12 & 13) on a vacation to Los Angeles at the end of May (21-27). Being a long time (in "straight" years=forever) holder of PIXR, I thought it would be really cool to see a "premier" of Nemo.
Does anyone know if this is possible?
I have been willing to settle for a T-shirt dividend for years, but a movie ticket dividend would be even cooler!
Anyway, on an unrelated note, I would appreciate any kid-friendly recommendations for time in Hollywood. All advice is welcome.
Favorite beaches? Restaurants? Anything that you can think of?...that does not involve trying to find where the Osbornes live!

Personally, I wouldn't dare go to Hollywood without first finding out where the Osbornes live.
Just before Monster's Inc. premiered in 2001, someone posted on this board saying that he had seen the film in a preview. I never heard of such a thing, but others on this board said that they knew what a preview was. You should look into the matter.
As mentioned earlier,
There is a Northern CA preview on May 9th..
I suspect that there will also be an early May preview at the El Capitan in Hollywood
Can't help with the tickets.
If you've got wheels out there and don't mind driving, I suggest the Wison Observatory, if they still do public tours--it has been decades for me, but it is impressive big-money science.
Another place to check out that fascinates kids is the La Brea Tar Pits. And the L.A. County Museum is not too shabby. The Santa Ynez Valley is probably the nearest real wine district to LA and would make a long but very pretty day trip. And of course the original MarineLand is nearby, as is San Diego Zoo.
Hollywood itself, I can't help.
