Jules Verne Adventures is organizing a tribute to the "King of Cool," Steve McQueen, to take place on November 11, 2010 at the Arclight Hollywood. This November will mark 30 years from McQueen's death, who died at the early age of 50.
To honor McQueen, Jules Verne Adventures will be doing a special screening of the film BULLITT, to be shown in the historic Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. In attendance will be McQueen's son Chad McQueen and grandson Steven R. McQueen (Vampire Diaries) to accept an award on Steve McQueen's behalf. Other celebrities and special guests who will be at the screening include Ali MacGraw, Jacqueline Bisset, and music composer Lalo Schifrin and I'm sure there will be others.

But wait, there's more!
Four days earlier, there will be a special kick-off event on Sunday, November 7, at 11am. Jules Verne Adventures is also organizing a Steve McQueen Motor Parade with Chad McQueen leading the way. This parade will be open to Jaguar, Mustang and Porsche owners if you want to register your car to participate. If you just want to watch, the parade will start at the intersection of Highland and Santa Monica Blvd.
