We are changing the venue this year! This year’s event will be held at the Hollywood American Legion, a historic venue known for its large concert hall, mixture of art-deco and military design, as well as convenient location to local hotels and downtown Hollywood. And the fact that it’s a big White Tower helps too!

Why the change you may ask? Well, we wanted more space for you! And to accomplish that, we have moved to a larger venue and are selling less tickets. Only 700 tickets will be sold to this year’s party. We expect them to sell fast.

When we asked you to take our Return of the One Party survey a month or so back, we learned that the location of hotels to the venue was important. How does 50 feet from the venue door sound? This year, three major hotels are within walking distance of the event, making it easier for you to attend! We will even have pre-registration on the Saturday before to make entering the party easier! The hotels are also only 2 blocks away from the famous Hollywood and Highland crossroads, where the Kodak Theater is located.

We have secured DISCOUNT rates for the three hotels next to the venue. The Holiday is offering $99 per night, while the Comfort Inn and Best Western are offering $109. Both rates are great for downtown Hollywood. Use the code ‘TORN’ to book rooms.
