Seminar at Egyptian
The American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles present a Slide Show presentation and lecture surrounding the publication of the new book Los Angeles Theatres (Arcadia Press) which details historic theatres in Los Angeles through rare photographs and text.

This Saturday, January 26th event starts at 2:00 PM (approximately 2 ½ hour event total) will consist of the slide show/lecture, a question and answer period and a book signing with co-authors Marc Wanamaker (Bison Archives), Suzanne Tarbell Cooper and Amy Ronnebeck Hall. The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles will begin the event with a short progress report on their activities in historic preservation in 2007 and a preview of plans for 2008.Los Angeles and the movies grew up together, so it is only fitting that this city would boast the biggest, the best and the brightest theatres imaginable.
Other lectures in this series are planned and will be announced as they are confirmed.
