The annual costume party at the Beach House brings history to life

The Annenberg Community Beach House reprises its annual birthday celebration of Marion Davies, the film actress, philanthropist and mistress of media tycoon William Randolph Hearst who once lived there.

Come out in vintage attire to celebrate Davies while watching home movies of Hearst’s 1937 circus-themed 74th birthday party at the Beach House, catching a performance by psychic entertainer Mark Edward, and cutting a rug to music from the classic American song book by LA Love Band (featuring Danny Meyer).

Jan. 3 would have been Davies’ 119th birthday.
