Description: The American Cinematheque screens the 1936 DRACULA’S DAUGHTER after an hour-long lecture on Art Deco era funeral practices. From the website: “The 1920s and ’30s saw an overwhelming change in all of the decorative arts including such funerary decorations as caskets, hearses, head stones, cenotaphs, and mausoleums.
This illustrated presentation by former Art Deco Society of Los Angeles president Rory Cunningham will utilize images and stories of monuments honoring the departed from around the world. Historian Nathan Marsak will display part of his extensive collection of embalming fluid bottles and other funerary relics of the period.”

Doors open at 1pm with a cake reception, in honor of the opening of the Egyptian Theatre exactly 100 years previously
