La La Land

Question: I have searched everywhere and cannot find the name of the male soloist in the opening scene who wears a white shirt and opens the back of the truck. What is it, please?

Question: I may have missed this, but early in the film, how did Mia and Sebastian get into the empty planetarium? It must have been locked up pretty tight. Did someone let them in? Did they break in? I'm guessing this was explained and I didn't catch it.

Chosen answer: The answer is, "It's a movie." They wouldn't have been able to drive up to the entrance either. The entire sequence is fantasy-driven.

Question: Mia's car is towed because of a parking restriction between 9:00pm and 6:00am. Is there anywhere in LA that has such a restriction?

Answer: Across various places in LA there are parking restrictions that match this criteria. A quick Google search will find a list of places.

Trivia: At the Oscar ceremony in 2017, the film was accidentally named Best Picture, instead of true winner Moonlight, when presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were accidentally handed the wrong envelope. Such a gaffe had never occurred in the Oscars' history before.
