30s/40s Sun 10/20 Venice Historical Guided Walk Visit Past and Present 50% off

I am co-hosting this with Eat Drink Laugh Repeat Meetup.

Los Angeles Magazine's "Best Walking Tour of 2012" is the only Venice walking tour using 102 years of film clips shown on an iPad to make long-gone roller coasters, canals and movie stars spring back to life before your eyes. You'll spend the day with Charlie Chaplin, Jim Morrison, Arnold Schwarzenegger and others as you visit each film location with Jonathan Kaplan, tour guide for the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation, TV writer and 17-year Venice resident. After seeing where Chaplin put on his derby and mustache for the first time in 1914, and where Morrison spent the summer of 1965 writing poetry on a rooftop, the tour will head to the beach to see modern Venice's bike path, skate park, graffiti pit, Muscle Beach and basketball courts -- and learn what was there before. Then it's on to the canals, where 1920s bungalows sit side-by-side with modern mansions, all surrounded by Venice's famous ducks.

    here are the details for tomorrow. this is from the tour guide.

    We'll be starting and finishing in front of 1601 Main Street, Venice 90291. That's the historic (and closed) Venice Post Office on the Traffic Circle at the intersection of Windward Avenue. The address may be hidden by the construction, but it's the only building under construction on the Circle.

    Since it's October, you should be able to find free all-day street parking on the streets leading away from the Traffic Circle (Venice, Way, Grand, Windward and Market. If not, the best place to park is at the Westminster Avenue Elementary School. They open at 10:00 and charge $12.00, which is half of most of the other lots. Here's a map showing parking and the tour starting point:

    Be sure to bring comfy walking shoes and sun protection, as well as a drink and a light snack. Please be aware that there are no restrooms at the beginning of the tour, and the first one is about an hour into it.
