Created by Werner Kurosawa, the LEA Theatre is a unique Qsim design, crossing into four regions with a very unique audience capacity of 240. The venue features high-tech amenities, such as a large Chat Bridge (allowing text-conversations to reach far into the audience across multiple sims), screens that become transparent when not in use, and an incredible Audio / Video / Web switching system that uses the AV1000 developed by AviewTV. One of the benefits, according to Kurosawa, '...probably the only place in SL where you can be with 240 avatars'
The Theatre also features a dazzling array of movable mirrored panels covering its unmistakable dome, making it an iconic structure on the LEA campus. Werner's design is based on Delauney and Voronoi generating principles. There is switchable ambient lighting and according to Theatre Manager LaPiscean Liberty 'roundtable seating for a cozy closeness'. This space is perfect for Film Premiers and Festivals, media-enabled conferences and much more.
LEA Theatre will unveil a series of regular events, such as the return of a monthly machinima program, and will host booked events, partnering with arts organizations and event producers with projects that can really benefit from the new facility. The grand opening event will be the screening of this year's Machinima 48 Hour Film Project submissions, presented by Chantal Harvey on April 15th.
The Media Arts Center is a special project of the Linden Endowment of the Arts that focuses on machinima and other new media. The LEA Theatre is the first of MAC's initiatives to be released, and a full-fledged MAC facility will be opened before summer 2012.

Two Shows: March 24th and March 31st, 2012
Time: 2 pm SLT
Location: The Pyramid Theatre, Park Avenue/161/95/705
On January 29th, the Dazzlers performed their Showcase event to a packed house, and many audience members bravely removed attachments to help alleviate lag. Dancers and audience alike remained steadfast against all odds and, in the end, everyone said they would do it again.
And guess what?! Yes folks, the Dazzlers are going to do it again! In fact, there will be TWO separate performances: March 24th and March 31st, both at 2pm SLT. But this time they'll be performing as Dazzlers for Life and the Showcase becomes a charity event benefitting Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising activity.
So, once again, this is your invitation to experience a set of exciting dance performances from ballet to urban to burlesque! If you couldn't make it the first time, come on out and see what you missed. There will be fantastic music, great costumes and colorful sets at the beautiful Pyramid Theatre. See you there!

The New York City sim in Second Life™ is simply stunning, it is the in place to be, with beautiful, realistic builds, fabulous places to shop and classy, modern living. New York City Sim™ has luxurious design and style, this architectural masterpiece is one of a kind.

|Lisa Cuthbert: Imperfect Contrition Tour|
|Rhapsody in green: Lisa Cuthbert, ready to celebrate her Irish heritage|
“Magdalene Asylums were institutions where Catholic women were enslaved and forced to work beyond human endurance because they were considered unfit to live in Irish society. A woman was branded ‘fallen’ if: she became pregnant, was a rape victim, illegitimate (born out of wedlock), orphaned, mentally handicapped, or even just too pretty. The girls were stripped of their identities, forbidden to speak, and if they broke any of the rules or tried to escape they were severely beaten by the nuns, put in solitary confinement, or even sent to mental hospitals.”
“Over a period of 150 years, an estimated 30,000 women were imprisoned in the Magdalene Asylums, and the last one shut in 1996. That part is really shocking for me because by 1996, I had already been baptised in the Catholic church and was attending a Catholic convent school in Dublin. It's horrific to think that I've been raised and educated with the same values and morals imposed by an organisation that destroyed so many lives.”

We’ve also updated the policy to be clearer about the sorts of innovations that developers should work on for their particular Viewers (Section 2.k), and which they should work on in partnership with Linden Lab for all of Second Life. This is so that we can avoid the problems that result when a Viewer changes the way elements of Second Life are defined or how they behave, in such a way that users on other Viewers don't experience the same virtual reality.
Here are the new sections of the policy (link):
We encourage Third Party Developers to continue innovating with unique user interfaces, niche features, and ways of interacting with the virtual world, and we look forward to working in partnership with developers on ideas they have for new or improved shared experiences for all of Second Life. We want to incorporate more innovative new features into Second Life to improve the experience for all users, and we encourage TPV developers to submit proposals through our standard process. (link)

An Interview with Ambrosia Lanley: Machinima Artist in Second Life
Written by Beth Quander
(note: Lucky Lady Film Premier Event is MAR 2 at 5PM SLT (Teleport there now)
I’d sat, wide-eyed, through 15 minutes of shoot-outs, technicolour sci-fi transformations, death-defying circus stunts, glowing vaginas and clowns. Behind the high-octane women superheroes working together to save the day colourfest was a serious message about child abduction and organised crime. And at the front was all that Second Life tech could do to portray bangs, flashes, explosions and high-speed chases.....
