Background: Lakeshore Entertainment was founded in 1994 by Tom Rosenberg.

1st Logo
(January 1996-May 30, 1997)
Lakeshore Entertainment (1994-1999)

: On a black background, we see a picture of a white frame containing a picture of a boy clad in shorts jumping off of a boardwalk into a lake. The picture is sepia-toned and filmed from the back. "LAKESHORE" is displayed above and "ENTERTAINMENT" is displayed below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Silent, or the films opening theme.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Bandwagon, 'Til There Was You, Box of Moonlight, and Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy. It is believed this plastered the New World Pictures logo on the original 1997 Anchor Bay DVD of Hellraiser and the Cinema Club region 2 DVD of Creepshow 2. It was also seen on a 2010 IFC airing of Heathers, again, in place of the New World Pictures logo.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(September 19, 1997-October 21, 2016)

: We start with a full-screen shot of the lake from before (still in sepia-tone), and we pan down a bit, focusing on the boardwalk. The boy in shorts runs into the frame towards the lake (in slow motion) and jumps, only to be frozen in mid-air. The picture zooms out, and the words "LAKESHORE" and "ENTERTAINMENT" fade into their usual spots.

  • There is a version in which "INTERNATIONAL" replaces "ENTERTAINMENT". This sometimes plasters or precedes the 1984 New World Pictures logo on films such as Under The Boardwalk.
  • There is a rare black and white closing variant.

FX/SFX: The animation, which appears to be a mix of live-action (the boy running; the sky with clouds, which seem to be time-lapsed footage) and computer effects (the river, with the light reflections on the water).

Music/Sounds: A soothing flute melody, sometimes coupled with goose quacking and water splashing. On some films, the movie's opening theme plays, or it is silent.

Availability: Common. Seen on films from the company. It first appeared on Going All the Way and last appeared on American Pastoral.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo
(January 6, 2017-)

Logo: A redone concept of the previous logo. The most notable changes are that the logo is now in muted colors and the background is changed, with two forests meeting at a vantage point and the cloud background showing a sunset at the horizon. The logo also starts with a young man (as opposed to a boy) running onto the boardwalk, in even slower animation than the previous logo. This is all in a box that slowly zooms out and reveals the same text as before, in a new font and not in italics.

FX/SFX: Seems to be entirely computer animation. A nicely done update of the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: So far, the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: Brand new, as this first debuted on Underworld: Blood Wars.

Editor's Note: None.
