About the event
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: Author/Illustrator and theatre preservationist Escott O. Norton will offer an interactive presentation about the historic theatres that have inspired his original coloring books. He’ll show a variety of theatre styles, and how color and detail make these beautiful structures so important (and so much fun to color!). Attendees will have a chance to experiment with coloring samples from his books, with all materials provided. Escott’s coloring books will also be offered for sale with a discount for members!
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: From an early age, Escott Norton was constantly designing and drawing, and was specifically attracted to the historic theatres of Los Angeles, going to the Eagle, the Rialto, the Chinese, Cinerama Dome, and other historic theatres. He founded Friends of the Rialto in 1983 to advocate for the South Pasadena landmark's protection, and was a charter member of the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation, an organization he led as executive director for six years. He now creates coloring books and continues to advocate for the preservation and revitalization of historic theatres, and his company, EON Design Co, does design consultation for historic theatres, commercial buildings and residences.
ABOUT THE CLUB: Founded in 1925, the Los Angeles Breakfast Club still thrives with food, friendship, and fun. Our meetings are held in our clubhouse, Friendship Auditorium, located at 3201 Riverside Drive, near the corner of Los Feliz Boulevard, in Griffith Park. Best described as a variety show, attendees enjoy a catered breakfast, silly songs, club traditions, and an interesting presentation from a guest speaker.
