Events may be affected by Covid-19 protocols!

While Historic Theatre Photos endeavors to ensure event information displayed on our website is kept accurate and updated, however during this volatile time there may be changes to events at theatres which we are not aware of. In particular, proof of vaccination and/or negative Covid-19 test results may be a condition of entry. Some vents may also have been cancelled. You are therefore strongly encouraged to check the status of events directly with the venue and/or event provider. Historic Theatre Photos cannot be held responsible for incorrect event information posted on this website in good faith and later updated elsewhere without our knowledge.

Thank you for your understanding.

AFI Life Achievement Award

AFI Life Achievement Award

The AFI Life Achievement Award was established by the Board of Directors of the American Film Institute to honor a single individual for his or her lifetime contribution to enriching American culture through motion pictures and television.

The inaugural award ceremony was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Subsequent ceremonies would be held there every year, except for the Century Plaza Hotel in 1975, until the ceremony moved to the Kodak Theatre (now Dolby Theatre) in 2002. The ceremony has remained at the Dolby Theatre aside from a four year stint at Sony Pictures Studios, 2009-2012.
