HOW IT WORKS

It's Hollywood, 1953. You don your vintage duds, assume the name of a classic film star and hit the town for an Oscars after-party. But before dinner is served, spend an hour exploring historic sites on Hollywood Boulevard. Which one is the scene of a crime?

WHERE WE MEET

Hollywood Boulevard is the scene of the crime, but which site? Is it Sid Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, built in 1922? The Hillview Apartments, built specifically for actors in 1917? Or how about Musso & Frank, Charlie Chaplin's favorite restaurant established in 1919?

STEVE IN LOS ANGELES

For Halloween this year, I tried to break out my best Willem Dafoe in The Lighthouse, for a Murder Mystery Party on Zoom. My costume didn't look anything like Willem Dafoe, and my impression didn't sound anything like Willem Dafoe, but I had a blast nonetheless. And I even solved a murder!

HUNTER IN SANTA FE

The most fun I've had in the pursuit of justice!

I see why The New York Times said such good things. Everyone was so creative in different ways. I was cracking up the whole time.

It was like the game Clue and really fun. Highly recommend this.

TANYA IN LOS ANGELES

My first Mystery Party was a happy surprise! I’d always wanted to try one and was not disappointed: everyone was very welcoming, I could relax and enjoy the fun and even make new friends! Perfect entertainment, a no-pressure environment and easy for newbies like me to pick up and fit right in. I highly recommend giving them a shot!

What do we do at a Hollywood Mystery Party?

The mystery unfolds as we explore Hollywood Boulevard on foot, with April guiding us to the stories and sites of Old Hollywood.

With prompts from your private stash of insider information, discuss your observations with your fellow guests: what you've seen on the tour, which of you seems the most likely suspect, and which evidence points most convincingly to a killer.
