The Theatre at Ace Hotel, 929 South Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015

Get to know some of hospitality’s brightest stars—and rising stars—over cocktails, conversation and an engaging Q&A in Ace Hotel’s jaw-dropping, Spanish Gothic-style theater. It’s a unique opportunity to spend time with industry trailblazers in Hollywood’s first indie movie house—a historic space created by, and for, Mary Pickford and other silent film stars back in 1927.
