Last XMas season, I hosted a Charles Phoenix retro slide show with a holiday theme. I found it very entertaining, especially since I did not know that the show would involve a lot of interesting food pics. Then earlier this summer, Sklar an architecture themed show, but I was out of town that time. Luckily, Charles Phoenix is offering his retro slide show again later this month at the Natural History Museum. So this is your second and final chance to check out his architecture themed show!

From the NHM website:

CHARLES PHOENIX: ARCHITECTURE IN LA!

A live slide show performance celebrating Googie, mid-century mod, themed-environments and more 

Complementing NHM's Becoming Los Angeles exhibit, pop culture humorist Charles Phoenix leads a fun-fueled whirlwind adventure tour exploring SoCal’s undiscovered and underrated mid-century architectural gems past and present.

With his trademark rousing enthusiasm, gracious wit, and keen eye for oddball detail, the Southern California in the 1950s author shares spectacular Space Age drive-ins, coffee shops, bowling alleys, strip malls, shopping centers, extreme homes, dingbat apartments, fast food stands, theme parks and much more all in glorious color!

Prepare for your local pride to swell! Festive dress is encouraged but not expected!"
