Commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Elizabeth Short’s gruesome, unsolved murder with The Lost Weekend of the Black Dahlia – actually a near weeklong series of events including a cabaret show at the 3 of Clubs, a premiere and screenings of Ramzi Abed’s “Black Dahlia Movie”, and an exhibit featuring Dahlia-inspired artwork. Of course, the folks at 1947 Project are helping throw it all together, topping it all with a handful of Crime Bus tours including a sure-to-be extra creepy midnight tour of Elizabeth Short’s haunts and murder site.
