The Hollywood Arts Council will present the 6th Annual Spirit of Old Hollywood Gala on Sunday, October 9th in the historic Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd., from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m.

Central to the evening’s festivities are séances led by international celebrity psychic and medium Patti Negri, psychic readings, and tours of the cemetery.

“The Masonic Lodge and cemetery grounds have such a rich history. My initial visit to the property was incredible – it promises to be a very active night indeed,” remarked Negri, who was recently voted number one psychic in the United States.

In addition to the séances and tours, the spirited evening includes gourmet food and beverages, and live music featuring the Hollywood Rhythm Kings.

David Warren, chair of the Hollywood Arts Council’s board of trustees noted the event, now in its sixth year, is fast gaining momentum, “In addition to increasing membership and raising awareness of the work of the Council, this is truly one of the most fun, unique and exciting events in Hollywood,” said Warren.

Old Hollywood glamour period or Film Noir attire is suggested and photographers will be posting to social media live during the event. Space is limited.
