Savor a taste of old Hollywood and vintage “Gold Coast” Santa Monica at the Annenberg Community Beach House on January 14 during Happy Birthday Marion 2018!
This annual FREE event is a celebration of what would have been actress Marion Davies’ 121st birthday. A popular silent-era film actress, Davies is also famous for her decades-long affair with publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst and for hosting some seriously fabulous parties. Back in 1928, Davies commissioned acclaimed architect Julia Morgan, who also designed Hearst Castle, to build her a beach house steps from the sands of Santa Monica Beach. Now known as the Annenberg Community Beach House, it’s often open to the public.
During this special afternoon, join a group of like-minded vintage lovers to explore Marion’s beautifully decorated guest house, dance to old-timey music, and drink a sparkling toast to Marion. If previous events have been any indication, you’ll also enjoy some birthday cake and watch Marion and Hearst in clips from their European-vacation home movies.
Though vintage attire is recommended, it’s not required. The event is free, but registration is recommended via the link below.
