In recent weeks I have read about local residents talking about a movie museum for Parcel B. Outside of the obvious (it being a charade to slowdown or stop development of this needed island in downtown,) there is an educational opportunity.
Carmageddon on July 16, 17 with the closing of the 405 for construction, gives us an opportunity to visit the Culver City Historical Society’s Archives and Resource Center (ARC) on Saturday, July 16 where museum activists can find out about movie history in Culver City by viewing some of the 60 plus MGM costumes, classic movies made in Culver City. There are hundreds of items from Culver City’s history that are intertwined with the movie industry.
Take an opportunity to be educated on Culver City and it’s film history and become a more knowledgeable member of the community. The ARC will be open Saturday, July 16 from 1 to 3 p.m. The ARC, for those members of the local democratic club or any other organization that wants to learn about Culver City history and the local film industry can arrange for a special tours by emailing [email protected] The ARC is located on the parking lot side of the Veteran’s Memorial located at 4117 Overland Ave. (corner of Culver Blvd.)
