Art Deco Architecture Presentation / THE CAMERAMAN
Co-presented with the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles

The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles has created a database of Art Deco Los Angeles architecture and will debut it in front of a live audience! Included is a demonstration of the wiki with instructions for adding your own images to this database of both standing and demolished structures. Following the presentation is a screening of Buster Keaton's 1928 comedy THE CAMERAMAN shot on the streets of Los Angeles (including Chinatown) at the height of the Deco era. After the program join the Art Deco Society at Miceli's on Las Palmas for "Cocktails in Historic Places."

Debut of the Art Deco Architecture Wiki!

1928, Warner Bros., 69 min, USA, Dir: Buster Keaton

Buster has a huge crush on Sally, an adorable office worker for MGM Newsreels. Buster gives up his tintyping job and gets himself a camera, with a new plan to catch the attention of both Sally and MGM. The novice cameraman is in the right place at the right time to capture on film a Tong war smack in the middle of Chinatown - and must narrowly escape plenty of disasters, Buster-style! In a clever meta-comment on impressing the studios, this delightful comedy was originally an MGM production.

Screening format 35mm. Wiki presentation approximately 20 minutes. Film to follow immediately after.
