Friday Evening Excursion: The World Famous Hollywood Magic Castle 


The Magic Castle is the private clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts, Inc, a very special organization devoted to the advancement of the ancient art of magic. The purpose of The Academy is to encourage and promote public interest in the art of magic with particular emphasis on preserving its history as an art form, entertainment medium, and hobby. Beginning with a charter membership of 150, the Academy has grown into a world-renowned fraternal organization with a membership of nearly 5,000.

Built in 1908, the Magic Castle is a Victorian mansion located in the heart of the Hollywood Hills. Today, the Castle has become the world-famous “home” to the Academy of Magical Arts, Inc. and their invited guests. While usually guests of the Castle must either be a member or invited guest of the Academy of Magical Arts to gain admittance, PCRI has made special arrangements for a limited number of conference attendees to have the opportunity to experience this truly “magical part of LA’s rich history!

Sunday Afternoon Excursion: Petersen Automotive Museum


Founded on June 11, 1994 by magazine publisher Robert E. Petersen, and his wife Margie, the $40-million Petersen Automotive Museum is owned and operated by the Petersen Automotive Museum Foundation. The museum is 300,000 square feet and has about 150 vehicles on display in its main galleries. The remaining half of the collection is kept in a “vault”, located on the basement level of the building. The ground floor displays a virtual history of the automobile in Los Angeles, complete with vintage vehicles and buildings. The second floor houses both permanent and special exhibits. The third floor features the May Family Children’s Discovery Center — an interactive exhibit where children can learn science through the workings of a car. The fourth floor houses an all-glass penthouse conference center, Founder’s Lounge, and kitchen for corporate and private use. The rooftop conference center was originally built by Seibu as a restaurant surrounded by a reflecting pool.
