We all remember Charles Phoenix, the midcentury maven and slide show entrepreneur who makes the past fun, right?
He’ll give a slide show in Pomona on Saturday and lead a tour his native Ontario on Sunday. You can read more about both in Friday’s column, but let me give you the appropriate linkages for tickets and more info.
He’ll give his Retro Holiday Slide Show at the National Hot Rod Museum, 1101 W. McKinley Ave., Gate 1, at 8 p.m. He describes the narrated slide show as “a 1950s & 60s New Year’s, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas jubilee.”
This is the first time he’s done his holiday show in the Inland Valley; other locations on his tour are Pasadena, Hollywood, Portland and Seattle. Tickets for the Pomona show are $26.95.
Read about the Charles Phoenix Hometown Holiday Tour here, and buy tickets there if you like. Phoenix also wrote recently about one of this tour stops, Logan’s Candies, an Ontario institution since 1933.
