Anyway, I'm looking forward to having some dinner and drinks with some of you guys and toasting to our very, very small group of film music fans!

I second that, Mark! I'm looking very forward to meeting everyone...

And maybe we'll attend one of the screenings at the Egyptian on Sat. night. Not a priority, but sure sounds like fun (^_^)

Now we just need to decide where to stay...we'd like something within walking distance...decisions, decisions!

About a block away from where the gettogether takes place is The Pig N' Whistle a refurbished restaurant and bar that hails back to the early days of Hollywood. It is a little spendy though. It is located next to the historic Grauman's Egyptian Theater (yeah, same guy who made the Chinese theater) which the American Cinematheque took over and runs everything imaginable there. That saturday night is part of their Famous Monsters of Filmland series with THE SON OF FRANKENSTEIN introduced by Sara Karloff, Boris' daughter, and THE GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN, introduced by Janet Ann Gallow, who is the little girl who befriends the monster.
Also just around the corner is Miceli's Restaurant with wonderful Italian food, better prices but a little cramped and VERY popular on saturdays.

We are also another block away from the Hollywood/Highland complex, modeled after the Babylonian set in INTOLERANCE, which has the Chinese Theater, Disney's El Capitan, the Kodak theater and, frankly, is a big commercial madhouse, but a lot of possibilities for eateries in and around it.


If it is anything like last year there will be plenty of people and splinter groups will form going to various post event stuff. So some will head for the Aero, others will go for the pub, others will stay near for the Egyptian event that night, others will head to dinner, so you probably will be able to name your poison.

P. S.
For those hanging out the whole weekend and are near the Egyptian on sunday night part two of the Famous Monsters weekend will play with DRACULA and THE HOUSE OF DRACULA at 7:30PM. Introduction to the first film by Carla Laemmle and introduction to the second film by Jane Adams who played the hunchback.

My goodness...how I WISH we could be there for Sunday night part two. Me thinks we really need to move to L.A. -- S.D. rarely offers (at least, to my knowledge) goodies as such. We are living in the WRONG town! Boo (-_-)

Oh well...looking forward to visting with ya'll!

Hey Mrs. A.N., since you and Mr. A.N. are coming from SD will you be driving? If not, I'll have a rental car in case you need a ride or two in the area.

I originally planned on staying at the previously mentioned Travelodge since it is pretty much the cheapest hotel within walking distance of the Burbank airport and Dark Delicacies, but I got such a good air/hotel/car deal, that I'll be near LAX and just drive each day across town to the events. Once there, I'll stay in the area for the rest of the day. So I could provide rides if someone needs one.

Hi Mark! Yes, we are driving. But we do not D&D, so we walk. (We enjoy a beer, plus many.)

Where are YOU staying?

I should be able to be there.

This is very cool! Perchance would this date coincide with a new Kritzerland release?

When I think about who potentially could show up to this, my mind boggles. I'm there.

Unfortunately Williams, I believe, will be with the Boston Pops that night but practically everybody else is up for grabs.

Is that no?

I just ordered my Bergman evening ticket, only $5.00, WOW and to see all those people, I'm getting there early for a good seat.

I have a question, what do you think I should wear, I'm not doing a tux, probably slacks and nice shirt and/or tie??? HELP

I'll be there in jeans. These aren't formal events, so all is good

Casual, but not scruffy, clothes are perfectly fine for a screening/event at the Motion Picture Academy.

Studio executives and old industry guys will probably come in their suits, and others will be designer-dressed, but these events are a real mix, as long as you are neat, clean, and put-together.

Be prepared to empty your pockets totally and walk through a metal detector. The Academy is very high on security at public events.

Much of the center section of the theatre will be roped off for Academy members and invited guests, so be prepared, if you buy a ticket, to get there VERY early, stand in line, and move quickly to get a non-reserved seat once the doors are open to non-Academy "outsiders".

Bond, your funny, YUK, I hate IZOD, I'm more of the Lacoste guy, course you know that. Maybe I'll see you out there in LA!!
