The past is our HERITAGE, the present is our RESPONSIBILITY, the future is our CHALLENGE.
Virtual - Afternoon @ the Barn - Hollywood Noir
with Angela Aleiss, author and historian.
Out of the shadows of Noir LA emerged a theater impresario whose reputation became entangled in one of the city's most notorious crimes. Join film historian and author Angela Aleiss Ph.D. on a walk with us just outside the Hollywood Blvd historic district to meet this man and his architectural legacy. We'll visit the Florentine Gardens and what was once the Marcal Theatre with their colorful past in the heydays of Hollywood nightlife. Q&A will follow. Viewers will be able to submit questions via chat on Zoom.
Angela Aleiss received her Ph.D. in film studies from Columbia University and teaches at CalState Long Beach. Her articles have appeared in Variety, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and Emmy Magazine. She is the author of “Making the White Man’s Indian: Native Americans and Hollywood Movies” (2005).
