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.
