Defiant Bar Sued; New Show Animates L.A. | Mar 5
On the March 5 episode of SoCal Update, KPCC Food Editor Elina Shatkin reports that Burbank is suing Tinhorn Flats for defying pandemic safety protocols, and multiple orders to close. KCET Arts and Culture Editor Carren Jao shares how L.A. history inspired the show “City of Ghosts.”
Burbank city officials have filed a lawsuit to shut down the Western-themed saloon Tinhorn Flats. The city has already revoked the bar’s conditional use permit and L.A. County has pulled its health permit. Owners are making social media statements about their refusal to comply.
Elizabeth Ito takes us to new territories with "City of Ghosts,” a new documentary-animation series on Netflix. The series follows five children from different L.A. neighborhoods who befriend ghosts; and along the way encounter surprising, sometimes difficult histories of the city, such as gentrification and even the erasure of culture.
