Subject: Los Angeles Lovers (off-site at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater)

This show will take place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, located at 1345 W. 1st St, Los Angeles, CA 90026.

Legendary LA personality (and unofficial mascot) Angelyne invites all to the third installment, Subject: Los Angeles Lovers, an evening devoted to the highly curious individuals who have surveyed, catalogued, and explored the city in service of making it more intelligible to others.

Focusing on both enthusiastic, visionary visitors and faithful locals with encyclopedic knowledge of architecture and lore, the event will consider different approaches to navigating and sharing the complex geography and culture of Los Angeles. Featuring LA-centric selections from Huell Howser’s down-home show California’s Gold, the fun-loving postmodernity of Reyner Banham Loves Los Angeles, a live bus tour from LA’s most erudite tourist outfit, Esotouric, plus much more–and of course, puppets!

Subject: Los Angeles was co-curated by Veggie Cloud’s Courtney Stephens and Kate Wolf, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive’s KJ Relth. Special thanks to the Prelinger Archives, Russell M. Saunders Film Collection, Pat Rocco, and Mark Quigley and Todd Wiener of the UCLA Film & Television Archive.
