L.A. fest marshals forces

'Valley' comes to Los Angeles Film Festival

HOLLYWOOD — Fire marshals stepped in to close the overflowing Cinerama Dome at Thursday’s Los Angeles Film Festival opening night festivities.

“The overflow theater rules!” cheered fest director Rich Raddon, bringing Elijah Wood to introduce kickoff pic “Down in the Valley” to auds in both theaters.

Star Edward Norton, who also produced the pic — about a delusional man who believes he’s a cowboy and the relationship that he starts with a rebellious young woman — did red-carpet duties with director David Jacobson and co-star David Morse.

At the Hollywood Palladium after-party, models posed among glowing cocktail tables while pic’s Bruce Dern and Rory Culkin chatted in the lounge.
