Do you remember the classic I Love Lucy episodes when the Ricardo's and the Mertz's headed west to Hollywood? The stars, the movie sets, Lucy's mishaps. Well, Vic Passante remembers them, and he wants to recreate the star-struck excitement for you in the Hooray for Hollywood Tour next fall -minus the mishaps. Join UW-Colleges Southeast Region and Vic on a Deluxe Backlot Tour of Warner Brothers Studios, including lunch at the famous WB commissary; enter the world of film on the Turner Classic Movie/Starline coach tour of movie locations, complete with a movie screen for clips of the film before we get there; spend a day touring Grauman's Chinese Theater, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Walt Disney Concert, Hollywood Bowl, and more. The group will stay at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt, site of the first Academy Awards celebration. Thanks to the generosity of Marcus Corporation, the trip includes membership in American Film Institute.
