Join The Image Conference colleagues, speakers and friends at our annual conference dinner. The dinner will be held at the Hollywood’s iconic Musso & Frank Grill and is to be highlighted as a time when many of our speakers are able to come together for more intimate conversations over food and wine.
Since it first opened in 1919, Musso and Frank Grill has been entwined with the history of Hollywood and the film industry. Through the years, Musso’s has always been “the place to be”. From Marilyn Monro and Joe DiMaggio to Charles Bukowski and Janis Joplin. Musso’s has been and still is a gathering spot for artists, innovators, and icons of all trades.
The daily menu at Musso’s was created by a French chef named Jean Leon Rue in 1922. Jean Rue reined as head chef for 54 years. In the last 88 years Musso’s has only had three chefs, which explains the preservation of the original menu and the consistency of excellent food.
With its iconic status, The Musso & Frank Grill continues to be a family-owned business. Spanning four generations of tradition, the owners have served Hollywood world-class martinis and food along with a history that is unparalleled.
Preview Screening - The Illusionist (L'Illusionniste) by Sylvain Chomet at UCLA Film & Television Archive - Friday, 3 December - 7:00-8:30 PM(19:00-20:30)
Sylvain Chomet channels the visual expressiveness and effortless charm of Jacques Tati into this almost wordless paean to a world and an art form long gone by. The Illusionist of the title faces the ragged end of a stage career alone, having been pushed aside by newer attractions, until he meets a young girl, captivated by his magic, who changes his life forever.
