Happy Birthday Marion! at The Annenberg Beach House
January 20 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Get a taste of old Hollywood — not to mention vintage Santa Monica — at the Annenberg Community Beach House during Happy Birthday Marion!
This free event celebrates what would have been actress Marion Davies’ 122nd birthday. An actress from the silent era, Davies is also famous for hosting some seriously fabulous parties and for her decades-long affair with publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst. Back in 1928, Davies had her Santa Monica beach house built by Julia Morgan, the acclaimed architect who also designed Hearst Castle.
During this special afternoon, you can explore Marion’s beautifully decorated guest house, dance to live old-timey music, hear stories from her past and enjoy a screening of 1930 The Florodora Girl staring Marion.
Vintage attire is recommended, though not required. Though the event is free, all ages are welcome, registration is recommended via the link below.
