Brooke Wheeler, son of Art Direction Oscar winner Lyle Wheeler will introduce the documentary made by Daniel Selznick, son of Producer David Selznick whose vision was the guiding light of the making of GWTW. The documentary we will screen was made for the 50th anniversary of GWTW at a time when most of the stars and people behind the scenes were still alive to be interviewed. It was a fascinating, frustrating process creating one of the longest films ever commercially screened (at 233 minutes) and after converting to today's dollars, the highest grossing film ever made.

Exploring pur cultural heritage layers unearths the changes each Era has brought to one small Mexican Rancho. From Alta California as we move into the early 19th Century our focus narrows to an artistic and social mecca--a single Hacienda built on what was once Rancho land designed by one of Edison’s Three Tenors. The perfect acoustics of Jose Mojica’s Music Salon enhances our chamber music, and the 1930-40's brought the room Anita Loos' eclectic salons filled with the creative, intellectual and famous people from around the world; until Lyle Wheeler (David Selznick's Art Director) made the hacienda his home. The over 600 films produced by these "Old Hollywood" Legends are screened along with those of their friends in our 50-seat theater.
