Art Deco Illustrated Presentations 2014
Egyptian Theatre 92nd Anniversary
"Dying for Deco" / DRACULA'S DAUGHTER
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles

What was it like to be laid to rest Art Deco style? “Dying for Deco: The Funerary Extravagances of the Art Deco Period,” an hour-long lecture digs six feet under to answer that question. 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. Followed by the 1936 Universal horror flick DRACULA’S DAUGHTER.

Doors open at 1:00 PM for a cake reception honoring our ancestors, who opened the Egyptian Theatre on this day in 1922.

1936, Universal, 71 min, USA, Dir: Lambert Hillyer

Gothic 1930s terror abounds as Dracula’s tormented daughter, Countess Marya (Gloria Holden), longs to escape the bloodsucking curse visited on her by her father in this haunting sequel to the Bela Lugosi original. She "strikes with all her father's cunning!"
