What a great event yesterday at the historic landmark Grauman's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood! Red Line Tours gathered press representatives, fans, and friends at a private party to showcase the new 2013 tour tickets designed by Andre. The “Directors Series” tickets celebrate four iconic film directors selected by the Directors Guild of America -- Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Clint Eastwood and Sophia Coppola, representing the Silent, Golden, Modern, and Contemporary eras of film -- and are a memento for tour patrons of their visit to Hollywood. We'll post more pictures on Andre's Facebook Page as they become available!
|Andre was in fine form as he spoke to the crowd. His jacket|
was embroidered, the same technique used on the costume he
designed for Elton John's famous "Concert in Central Park."
|Andre paid special respect to Sid Grauman, the American theatrical impresario|
who co-developed the Egyptian Theare in 1922, then in 1927 created one of Southern
California's most recognizable and visited landmarks, Grauman's Chinese Theater.

50th anniversary screening of the 1963 film directed by Alfred
Hitchcock took place at Grauman's Chinese Theatre Thursday evening.

Oh, and did you want to see the tickets? Here they are! All that's missing is the terrific effect when you see the silver foil detail in person. They capture the essence of Hollywood, don't you think?
