Stephen Sylvester, co-author of M-G-M Hollywood’s Greatest Backlot, and Academy award winning cinematographer Fred Koenekamp will share the spotlight at the next general meeting of Culver City Historical Society in the Veterans Memorial Building’s multi-purpose room.

A signed copy of the book will be given away by drawing and all attendees will have a chance to win. You can also order his book through this link and bring it with you, and he’ll sign it after the presentation.

Koenekamp, known for his camera work on Patton, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Papillion, and The Towering Inferno, for which he won his Academy award, and many other fine films, will also share his memories of the MGM years.

The entrance to the multi-purpose room is through the back of the building near the parking lot, and through the Archive & Resource Center space. Please r.s.v.p. to the society to reserve space.
