Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

January 11, 2013

A lot of smaller movie theatres have been struggling because they do not have the money to convert to all digital. A fundraiser was held at a movie theatre here in town to save a small place and the event was not doing that well until this A+ list all movie actor who is very well known on this site asked how much the cost would be and wrote a check for $60K on the spot. The other money raised that night went to replace the older seats.

Robert Downey Jr.

How come we're still in January?

Count Jerkula said...

Don't you question Enty, Betch. Enty is all knowing and infallible. I don't read this site, and neither do my friends, but the Twunt phone ring and the Twunt signal shines in the sky and I come here to defend those who are too incompetent to defended themselves. Bla bla bla bla.

P.S. RDJ should got the Oscar for Chaplin. Fuck Anthony Hopkins where he breathes.

Stacey Charter said...

@Count LOL would that be his nose? Or his mouth?
YAY RDJ! Tho this one was solved by checking the kickstarter webpage.

Blondie! said...

I know this was revealed before, and I don't care. RDJ is my hero. Smart, compassionate,funny and hawt. Man needs to be cloned.

This movie theater is one of the only venues around that a low income family can enjoy.

Lol..dr. hannibal lecture deserved the accolades however rdj pre iron man..a hard to accomplish auteur actor..not in the thought that he p l ayed himself but he encompassed the parts as only "he" could...beyond method...when he gets it right..oh my jeebus..no stopping him...btw count..the ladies are ALL about you lately on the site...my theory is...ur a 14 yo boy or a 74 yo grandpa.

nudibelle said...

He's awesome

Herrr said...

It was a small movie theater in LA, not a small-town movie theater.

Oh honey, between the release of Avatar and rerelease of Titanic Jim Cameron had the studios upgrade every single theater that would be screening the film. No theater screening films of that size aren't converted yet. Studios don't release film prints anymore. Not even art houses.

Silly Girl said...

Glad this was revealed. He really seems like a down to earth, regular guy. Love him.

auntliddy said...

Hes really trying to atone by being a mensch.

TinselSass said...

Fantastic! So important to support small movie theaters if we want entertainment that is not The Lone Ranger. RDJ rocks!

Happy Independence Day to THE BEST ONLINE COMMUNITY! Thanks for another six months of smarts, humanity, pushing limits and laughs.

Off to KCRW's 4th of July Block Party at Grand Park in downtown LA. If you're in town and looking for fun - http://events.kcrw.com/event/2013/07/04/4th-of-july-block-party

Have a safe great holiday!

It wasn't or shouldn't have been a blind because he was televised being at the fundraiser for the theater. you can see it on youtube

SusieQ said...

RDJ defended Mel Gibson ("Unless you are without sin, and if you are you are in the wrong (expletive) industry, you should forgive him and let him work"), but he made this happen, can't hate on the Iron Man.

Sherry said...

WhoCaresnow12 and others..I don't believe it was revealed as much as someone put a link to this story in the response for the original.

There are quite a few small Art Houses that are not part of a chain that DO need help. The blind doesn't mention the screening of any particular film. Did I miss something?

MadamChef said...

@TinselSass, will RDJ be there? :-b

Happy July 4, CDANers!

abob said...

Happy 4th July you lot across the pond.

Fluffy White Clouds said...

Love Robert Downey Jr. Not a Less Than Zero kind of a guy.

Jenn said...

I think he defended Mel because when RDJ couldn't get work due to being un-insurable Mel paid the bond, the insurance, his guild fees and other stuff. Basically, he said he'd vouch for Robert to be on the movie, and cover the cost if he screwed up. And, I think that meant a lot to RDJ at the time. So, yeah, he's going to return the favor when Mel's in the same position because that's what friends do.

Margaret said...

I can't possibly love Robert Downey Jr. anymore than I already do.

I'm so proud of how far he's come with his past problems. He seems like a good soul.

dia papaya said...

Robert Downey Jr is an angel at heart! He puts the sexy back in kindness and gratitude!

I wish Enty would post more kindness blinds bc they always make my day!

Pour another fruity cocktail for me :D

When you have been to hell and have the opportunity to crawl back and not only stand but triumph, then you give a hand to those who stood by you when no one else would. Love him

Steampunk Jazz said...

Love this guy, I'e been his since forever. No matter what, no matter when. Addiction is such a bitch and him getting past his, helped me with mine.

Love Him!

Lucie said...

Himmmm is my hero. I thought he was lost, then he came back raging. He's been through it all and came out better.

deity2 said...

Love himmmmm....for some reason, Alec Baldwin has been helping out a very small town in my state....( I am DRUNK and do not feel like looking up why)....and this has been happening for a few years...it is RI, by the way...

Count Jerkula said...

@Megan00m: If I was this smart, and not the complete mark that I was at 14, I would have gotten tons of action.

I'll never live to 74. 65, I'll be quite happy. 70 and I'm cashing out. Give my kid/grandkids checks, and I'm going to turn into a quart of gin at breakfast kind of drunk.

I'm almost 40.

Tempestuous Grape said...

No way. It's quite obviously a female. Both Count and Enty are absolutely women.

Count Jerkula said...

@Temp Grape: Yep. Tits like cantaloupe, snatch like a vice. When I leave the room, all the dudes say, "Damn that ass is nice."

Anna Nonymous said...

Now THAT is a Star.

Aoife said...

I am love unconditionally with RDJ.
