ART DECO SOCIETY LECTURE
THE MOVIE THEATER ARCHITECTURE OF TIMOTHY PFLUEGER
The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, in partnership with American Cinematheque, is delighted to host an afternoon with Therese Poletti, author of Art Deco San Francisco: The Architecture of Timothy Pflueger. This special lecture and book-signing, developed specifically for the ADSLA, will focus on Pflueger’s work designing some of California’s most beautiful and iconic movie palaces, including Oakland’s beloved Paramount. In addition to discussing Pflueger’s work and wide-ranging influence, she will also share the story behind the architecture — Pflueger’s commissioning and support of muralist Diego Rivera and his association with photographer Ansel Adams and sculptor Ralph Stackpole — all punctuated by beautiful archival photography mixes with stunning new photography.
Tickets are $5 for members of ADSLA and American Cinematheque.
$10 General Admission / $8 Students & Seniors
