Disney Legend Bob Gurr Talks About Designing Disneyland !Limited Seating!

THIS IS A PRE-PAY EVENT. TRY VERY HARD TO DO BOTH #1 AND #2!

1) PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS BEFORE RSVP-ING AS SPACE IS LIMITED.

2) PUT CONFIRMED IN YOUR RSVP.

If you ever read Los Angeles Magazine you are probably familiar with the 'Ask Chris' segment. He answers all those burning questions like:

My friend is moving to Agoura to raise a goat. I'd love to own one of the animals myself. Is it legal to keep livestock in LA?

or

Do you know the source of the big flame along the 101 freeway near La Conchita? It appears to be lit all the time.

And Chris knows the answers to these, ah, burning questions! I met him a couple of years ago actually and he is a pretty cool dude. BUT, speaking of cool!

Your columnist Chris Nichols is a civic minded fellow and I serve on the board of Hollywood Heritage. The non-profit runs a museum in the barn Cecil B. DeMille used to make The Squaw Man, the first feature film shot in Hollywood. On March 13th I’m hosting an evening there with Bob Gurr. Mr. Gurr is a Disney Legend who began working on Disneyland the year before it opened. He imagineered the original Monorail, Autopia all the iconic ride vehicles for Disneyland and some of the other Disney parks. He will discuss his memorable theme park and movie creations, including Disney's animatronic Abraham Lincoln, Universal's King Kong, concepts for the Jurassic Park dinosaurs and robots for the 1998 production ofGodzilla. He will autograph his book, Design: Just For Fun, which is out of print, but will be available for purchase in the museum store. Below are some slides from Mr. Gurr's personal collection.

If you're not familiar with the Hollywood Heritage Museum, it's a little yellow barn/house across the street from the Hollywood Bowl built in 1895 and used by Cecil b. DeMille. It's rather like the birthplace of the movies. It's a CA State Historic Landmark. I've wanted to plan something @ the Hollywood Heritage Museum for quite some time but they beat me to the punch so now I can go and not have to plan a thing!
