In October, 2013, The Nethercutt Collection was pleased to present the only, near original, 35mm print of the 1925 Phantom of The Opera movie in the world. This film was shown on a 1908 Powers hand cranked movie projector by our artist Joe Rinaudo, accompanied by Dean Mora, live on our Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ. We were also honored to have as our special guest, Carla Laemmle. Her uncle, Carl Laemmle, was the founder of Universal Studios. At 104 years old, she is the only surviving cast member from the original Phantom of The Opera Movie. She was interviewed as part of the presentation and the audience was thrilled to hear her stories and to meet her after the performance.

Rose Parade

On January 1, 2008, two highly decorated automobiles from The Nethercutt Collection were driven in Pasadena’s annual Rose Parade.

Staged every year since 1890, this was the 119th Annual Rose Parade and the second consecutive year that The Nethercutt Collection has been invited to drive the dignitaries. The Parade is 5.5 miles in length and takes more than 2½ hours to complete — a real test for automobiles nearly 100 years old.
