More details – including confirmed DS guests, planned programming, and more – will be announced soon in upcoming ShadowGram Official DS News Online Updates via the free ShadowGram Group List at Yahoo.com.

 

 

***** LOCAL ATTRACTIONS OF INTEREST – TRAVEL & HOTEL INFORMATION

 

---- On Sunday, October 30, fans also can acknowledge another important DS milestone: The 25th Anniversary of the nighttime DS TV series, the only primetime television version of DS.

 

Fans are encouraged to carpool, uber, or taxi to nearby Greystone Estate, 905 Loma Vista Dr., Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

 

This extensive hilltop estate was the main filming location for the 1991 “Dark Shadows” primetime NBC-TV series. Different rooms and views were used as both Collinwood and the Old House. Airing 1-13 to 3-22, 1991, its 13 hours told a condensed, more intense version of the story of Barnabas’ release from the coffin into modern-day Collinsport, with a flashback to 1791, leading to Angelique’s vampire curse.

 

The elegant Greystone mansion rooms and grounds also were used extensively to shoot location scenes for a 2004 pilot ordered by the WB network. The proposed new DS series revisited the Barnabas origin story as well. The pilot was not picked up by the network.

 

Built in 1927-28 by oil magnate Edward Doheny and now owned by the city of Beverly Hills, the grounds are a city park and free to the public to visit 10:00am-6:00pm daily. Buildings are closed to the public. It offers impressive views of the Los Angeles area spread below the hills. The building exteriors/interiors and estate grounds are frequent filming locations for movies, TV shows, commercials, music videos, etc.  Weddings, receptions, concerts, readings, exhibits, flower shows, and special events also are held there during the year.

---- The Hollywood Women’s Club building is just half a block north of Hollywood Boulevard and the start of the world-renowned “Hollywood Walk of Fame” (which also continues along Vine Street). Sidewalks on both sides of the boulevard and 3 blocks on both sides of Vine St. feature separate, distinctive, embedded 5-pointed terrazzo and brass stars that honor 2900+ individuals and entities recognized across the decades.

 

These salute Film/TV/Music/Radio/Theatre/Industry/Fictional & Cartoon Character personalities and special honorees (even Lassie and the Muppets).

 

JOAN BENNETT (DS’ Elizabeth, Naomi, Judith, Flora) is among those recognized with one of these distinguished stars.

 

---- The Women’s Club building is 2 blocks from the iconic Chinese Theatre which is at 6925 Hollywood Blvd. Opened in May, 1927, its famed forecourt presents embedded large concrete blocks featuring actual signatures, hand-, and foot- prints (and sometimes specific features) of entertainment industry personalities from the 1920s to now. Visitors can freely wander the forecourt, take photos, etc. The Theatre itself has long been used for major motion picture premieres and other special occasions.

 

All along Hollywood Blvd., nearby Sunset Blvd., and adjacent streets are unique special attractions such as the Hollywood & Highland Entertainment Complex (frequent venue for the Academy (Oscar) Awards and other entertainment ceremonies), the Hollywood Wax Museum, historic El Capitan and Egyptian Theaters, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum, countless shops, restaurants, and many other points of interest.
