SATURDAY,DECEMBER 15th – 2 pm @ the EGYPTIAN THEATER- Welcome to the Hollywood Canteen!
Welcome to the Hollywood Canteen! Step back in time from 1942-1945 here in Hollywood at the ultimate serviceman’s club, the Hollywood Canteen. It’s a place where Rita Hayworth passed out sandwiches, Danny Kaye & Bob Hope told jokes & Bill “Bojangles” Robinson danced as music by Kay Kaiser or Harry James played on the stage.
Hollywood’s ultimate tribute to those serving their country will be celebrated with an original slide show by Bruce(Hollywood the 1st 100 years) Torrence & co-author Lisa Mitchell before a screening of the film, “Hollywood Canteen”(1944). Larry Edmunds folks will be there with the book, “The Hollywood Canteen” too, a great collection of photos and stories about a time when our fighting young men mingled with Hollywood’s biggest stars. The fun will begin at the Egyptian Theater on Saturday the 15th at 2 pm.
