LOS FELIZ — For about 15 years the likeness of Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp and other movie stars gazed down from a mural on the side of the Los Feliz 3 Cinemas. But now the same wall on Russell Street and Vermont Avenue showcases a newly painted mural with a different set of stars: Cate Blanchett, Morgan Freeman, Charlie Chaplin and Elizabeth Taylor.

The new mural is by Australian artist  Brad Robson, who  has painted large-scale murals in Barcelona New York and Sydney.  A representative for Robson contacted the theater owner — Vintage Cinemas — to allow him to to paint the mural. Robson and Vintage Cinemas then agreed on what stars should be included.
