Hollywood Heritage and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Present: The Bright Lights of Hollywood
The Hollywood Heritage Museum and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association present "The Bright Lights of Hollywood" on Wednesday, January 10, 2017. The program will begin with a live demonstration in the parking lot at 7:00PM.

Bob Meza of Victory Searchlights will discuss the history, operation and role of the carbon arc spotlight.  These lights, often associated with the movie premiere, were manufactured by the General Electric Company to aid World War II anti-aircraft gunnery crews in spotting enemy aircraft during night-time air attacks. The beam of light  can be seen from over 35 miles away. Mr. Meza will be operating his meticulously restored 1942 General Electric searchlight before and after his presentation!

Accompanying Mr. Meza, will be author and historian Jim Elyea, who will speak about the carbon arc lighting of movie sets, both on stage and on location. In between will be a short presentation on the history of premieres. Start the new year right by joining us for this unique presentation!

Just added! Legendary film Director John Landis will be receiving a Resolution from the City of Los Angeles at the beginning of the night. Landis, who is on the Hollywood Heritage Advisory Board, will be receiving the certificate from Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell, who represents the 13th District.
