Day 2 brings us to the iconic Ace Hotel Theater. In 1927, Hollywood’s Golden Age, a group of iconoclasts opened the United Artists studio and theater. Over the years, the theater changed ownership a number of times but remained true to its initial ethos of serving as an indie production house outside of the already known neighborhood of Hollywood until 1989. In 2014, Ace re-opened the historic theater’s doors after an impressive restoration. Today it welcomes rock and roll icons, large-scale concerts, movie premiers and other cultural events. We are excited to bring our own family of provocateurs to this remarkable venue and stage. Expect a number of heavy-hitter panels, INDIEtalks and Convos.
