The Miller Special Collections Room at the Billie Jean King Main Library is pleased to announce our next Arts & Culture Lecture Series event to get you in the mood for Halloween! Please join us on Saturday, October 30th, from 2 – 4PM as we kickoff our first in-person program for the fall, entitled “Exploring Music, the Movies, and the Creepy Collaborations of Screen Legend Alfred Hitchcock and Composer Bernard Herrmann.”
Film and music are a natural combination. Author, filmmaker, and composer Steven Deeble will walk us through a short history of film, the introduction of sound and music, and how the scoring process works. The program will conclude with a case study examining the collaboration between Alfred Hitchcock and noted composer Bernard Herrmann.
This free in-person program will take place in Meeting Room A (on the 1st floor of the Billie Jean King Main Library) and will have limited seating, so registration is required to attend.
The Billie Jean King Main Library is located at 200 W. Broadway, on the corner of Broadway and Pacific. Library parking is available in the structure at Broadway & Chestnut Avenue. With library validation, parking is free for the first 30 minutes and $1.75 for 2 hours; daily maximum is $12.
Can’t make the event? Please still sign up — an archived video link will be emailed out to registrants after the program for viewing at your leisure. For any other questions, contact Miller Room staff at (562) 570-6729 or by email at email@example.com.
