John-Trosko.jpg (8511 bytes)"I've met lots and lots of friends volunteering with the American Cinematheque along with something surprising: Along the way, I've gained valuable business expertise for marketing, event production, public relations and leadership. These skills have helped me tremendously in my own personal career. Bravo for all the opportunities I've been given and I am thrilled to be a small part of an amazing Hollywood legacy." John Trosko, Organizing LA

You too can Volunteer!

Parking Concerns at the Egyptian:
As many of you have noticed, the meters south of Hollywood Boulevard have gone up to $2/hour and you can only park at a meter for ONE hour (hardly enough time to take in a movie, dinner or to go clubbing!). The meters are now monitored until midnight on weekends. In addition, the area lots are often $20 on weekends. If you have an opinion on this, please voice your concerns to the following organizations:

Leron Gubler, President and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce 323/469-8311 ext 12
