San Gabriel start-up Ruby Lion aims to reinvent tea
New local e-commerce business to sell original flavors of tea
For Leonard Nima, tea isn't simply a refreshing drink. Rather, it's a discipline that's meant to be explored - so much so that he started his own tea company based in San Gabriel.

"At a certain point of time, an event happens that triggers you to think: I could do something better, or this is wrong and it needs to be fixed right way," Nima said. "There was just this whole empty area of places that could have been something like this - a company that likes creative, risk-taking flavors endeavors."
Silent Sundays screening this weekend!
Watch the sci-fi classic "The Complete Metropolis"
This Sunday, at 2:30 p.m., the Mission Playhouse will be screening the sci-fi classic, "The Complete Metropolis." With tens of thousands of extras, vast sets, groundbreaking special effects and over one million dollars spent (in 1927!), this film is a visual masterpiece. "The Complete Metropolis" will be shown with 25 minutes of missing footage, restoring Metropolis to director Fritz Lang's original vision.

Clark Wilson will be accompanying the film on the Playhouse's 1924 Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ.
