Hollywood Heritage
EVENINGS @ THE BARN return for the 2008/2009 season
with a Halloween theme:HAUNTED HOLLYWOOD
Wednesday October 22, 2008.  7:30 PM      

 

Hollywood Heritage President Marc Wanamaker will be your guide to hauntings in Hollywood! Based on his 1994 book, Hollywood Haunted, co-authored with Laurie Jacobsen, the evening will be a photographic “tour” of sites in Hollywood that were and are reportedly “haunted.” 

.

Marc will explain how such research is done, what true haunted sites are, and which are bogus.  Using historical photographs, the presentation will include movie studios, theaters, hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and other Hollywood locations.

.

There will also be two short films with a “haunted” theme: The First Round Up (a spooky Our Gang comedy short) and a 1931 documentary Ghosts of Hollywood – a tour of abandoned silent-era movie studios.  You don’t have to believe in ghosts to enjoy this GHOSTLY evening!
