The History & Restoration of Grand Central Air Terminal

May 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Pack your valises for an Art Deco Society of Los Angeles excursion to the historic Art Deco meets Spanish Colonial Revival Grand Central Air Terminal in Glendale, CA. You’ve seen this 1930 airport designed by architect Henry L. Gogerty in Art Deco era movies such as Howard Hughes’ HELL’S ANGELS and BRIGHT EYES with Shirley Temple, but it was also famed aviator Amelia Earhart’s home airport and a major hub for early commercial flight. Planes no longer take off from Grand Central Air Terminal, but ideas still take flight. The building houses offices for Imagineers!

Our Saturday, May 4 visit to the Glendale Grand Central Air Terminal will feature a presentation on the history of early commercial air travel and the airport (as well as its later incarnations) by historian Steve Spiegel (who designed the museum exhibit housed in the building), architect John Berley who oversaw Disney’s incredible restoration of the building along with Jeff Greene, founder and Executive Chairman of EverGreene Architectural Arts.

Tickets will be available soon, so get your bags packed and your best vintage traveling outfits ready for take off!

Much gratitude to Disney for making it possible to study this magnificent restoration from inside and out!

Member Tickets: $24, Non-Member $34.

Doors open at noon. The program begins at 1:00 PM. Following the presentation and panel discussion, the small museum exhibit will be open for an additional 30 minutes for those who don’t have a chance to see it prior to the presentation.

Free street parking is available.

Members of the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets at noon on Thursday, April 18. Remaining tickets will be on sale at general admission prices on Monday, April 22 at 5:00 PM. Tickets are non-refundable, but you may transfer your ticket to a friend.

As always, vintage attire admired, but not required.

This building now houses Disney private offices. We ask that all guests stay in the designated areas for the event. No recordings or photos can be taken of the material presented onscreen.
