Entrance to Buster Keaton Estate
Mark your calendars. On Saturday, October 6, 2012, the Los Angeles Conservancy is having a benefit dinner party that is being held at the Buster Keaton Estate in Beverly Hills. This your chance to support a great cause and explore the home of a Hollywood legend - and not just one Hollywood legend.
The Los Angeles Conservancy website says this about the home:
"Buster Keaton built the 10,000 square-foot home shortly after completing his masterpiece, The General (1926). Yet the estate's Hollywood pedigree doesn't stop there: it was later the home to other stars, including Marlene Dietrich, Cary Grant, and James Mason. By the mid-1990s, the estate had fallen into disrepair. It was purchased by a pair of preservation-minded buyers who immediately undertook a major restoration."
Just think of all the guests who have passed through the above entrance way. If only walls could talk - the stories they would be able to tell!
If you would like to attend, tickets don't come cheap. Individual tickets begin at $300 each and go up to $10,000! But hey, if you got that kind of dough why not put it to good use. Space for dinner is limited. Attire is cocktail or 1920s vintage.
For full details and to purchase tickets visit the Los Angeles Conservancy website.
