Art Deco Society Illustrated Lectures 2017
In Person Guest!
L.A.'s Legendary Restaurants & A STAR IS BORN
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles

Join us for an illustrated presentation by chef George Geary on classic Los Angeles restaurants – some still a part of the Los Angeles culinary scene, some only fond memories. Geary traces the cultural history (and recipes) of dining in Los Angeles through legendary restaurants, including elite eateries like Scandia, celebrity haunts such as the Brown Derby and later Ma Maison, and Hollywood Boulevard’s own hot fudge legend, ice cream parlor C.C. Brown’s. There will be a display of original menus from some of these legendary establishments, in the lobby before the lecture and at the break! Read an exclusive interview with Chef Geary on our blog.
Feature follows at 3:20 PM.

Chef George Geary will sign his book, L.A.'s Legendary Restaurants: Celebrating the Famous Places Where Hollywood Ate, Drank, and Played (Santa Monica Press), in the lobby at intermission. Larry Edmunds Book Shop will sell the book.
80th Anniversary!
