The La Jolla Historical Society will be hosting an event centered around the rich history of La Jolla on Thursday, August 20, featuring photographs and silent films from the late 1800’s and 1900’s. Take a step back in history while you enjoy wine and appetizers at this unique event!

The Archive La Jolla Reception will start at 5:30pm, where guests can view the Archive La Jolla Exhibit at Wisteria Cottage. The exhibit features a series of old photographs illustrating what life was like in The Jewel more than a hundred years ago; wine and appetizers will be available along with some live music to set the mood.

At 8pm immediately following the reception, the event will move to the lawn, where silent movies will be screened underneath the stars and ocean breeze. All silent movies being featured were filmed in the 1920’s and produced locally by the La Jolla Cinema League; many of them will show several well-known La Jolla locations such as Casa de Manana
