THE NEXT SALON IS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH…Â Our special guest Monday night will be Scott Alvarez, producer/writer/director and head of one of Hollywoodâ€™s hottest young film production companies, Cinema Revival.Â Scott is in post now on his latest project, the feature “Por Vida,” about a Latina gang leader, now in post-production starring Danny Glover, Snoop Dogg and Elizabeth Pena.Â Formerly of Gering, NE, Scott earned an electrical engineering degree from Stanford before founding his own commercial advertising and film production company in San Francisco in 1997, Insurgency Pictures. There Scott wrote, produced, and directed television commercials and marketing films for such national brands as Kelly Moore Paints and Books for Dummies.Â In 1999, Scott founded Cinema Revival in order to launch his career as a motion picture writer/director/producer.Â Â Come Monday and hear Scottâ€™s take on how to make your dreams come true. Weâ€™ll also be putting together our plans for the holiday party in December – come join the team and get the scoop first.Â OUR NEW HOME IN CULVER CITY…Â Â Have you heard the news? THE HOLLYWOOD SALON HAS MOVED! Our new Salon home is at the historic Culver Hotel in “The Heart of Screenland,” Culver City! Did you know that Culver City was founded by Nebraskan Harry Culver, and that it was Harry who brought the movie studios there…birthplace of WIZARD OF OZ, GONE WITH THE WIND, CITIZEN KANE, and all the great old MGM musicals? Our Salons are now held in Harry Culverâ€™s old office, rich with Hollywood legends, and likely haunted by Harry himself! If youâ€™ve been to a Salon at the Culver, you know how cool it is.Â If you havenâ€™t been there, what are you waiting for? See you Monday, October 10th!
