Hollywood Heritage Community Preservation Day
May 19, 2016
Hollywood Heritage is celebrating preservation month with a Community Preservation Day on Saturday, May 21,
The festivities on Community Preservation Day will include area walking tours, food trucks, neighborhood information tables, a “This Place Matters” Hollywood photo campaign, and free admission to the Hollywood Heritage Museum, 2100 N. Highland Ave., from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
The museum, located in the Lasky-DeMille barn – the oldest existing motion picture production building in Hollywood, houses a collection of artifacts from early film history. Currently, the museum features an exhibit on the earliest award winning actors, including Luise Rainer, the first actor to win back-to-back awards, and Barry Fitzgerald, the first actor to be nominated in the same year in two categories for a single role in a single film.
Parking is free in the large parking area on the east side of Highland Ave. in front of the museum, across from the Hollywood Bowl, entering off Odin Street. Easy access is also available via Metro, with the Hollywood and Highland Stop being approximately a half-mile south.

On June 8, Hollywood Heritage will be celebrating the Glory Days of Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Studio at their Evening @ the Barn series at 7:30 p.m. Artwork and memorabilia from Hanna-Barbera will be on display in the main gallery, refreshments will be served on the front deck, and there will be a conversation with animators Tony Benedict, Willie Ito and Jerry Eisenberg.
