Hollywood Star Charts


A few summers ago I found myself on a hillside in Portland, Oregon having my star chart mapped. If you’d told me I’d be doing that a few years ago, I would have laughed myself silly. But over the last few years, my willingness to try new things and open my mind a bit more has drastically changed. So when I saw this series of prints inspired by both star charts and stars of the silver screen, I was hooked. Designed by Dorothy, these Hollywood Star Chart litho prints feature constellations named after some of the most culturally significant films of our time. Right now Dorothy is offering two chart styles, Golden Age (based on the night sky over Los Angeles on October 6th, 1927- when ‘The Jazz Singer’ was released) and Modern Day (based on the night sky over New York on June 16th, 1960 – the date of the first showing of Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’ at the DeMille Theater in New York). I love seeing Pulp Fiction charted next to Easy Rider and Chinatown. It’s a great spin on a popular theme and a perfect gift for the film-lover in your life.

Yep… I need this in my life. My husband and I are moving at the end of the month and I think this would make the perfect housewarming gift to ourselves ;)

Oh WOW, I need this! My husband and I write a film blog together (movies are our life!) and we have a blank wall in our office…!

This is great and so up my alley. I have a fascination with the stars and unfortunately I live in LA where it’s hard to see the stars. But every night I look up at the sky to look for orion’s belt.
