2015 State of Addiction Brings Together Industry and Political Influencers to Discuss Hollywood's Relationship With Addiction

2015 State of Addiction Brings Together Industry and Political Influencers to Discuss Hollywood's Relationship With Addiction

Conscious Recovery by CLARE hosts Hollywood Journalist Chris Gardner, Former Agent/Producer Brian Gersh, MusiCare's Harold Owens, Actor's Fund Dae Medman, Assemblymember Richard Bloom and others for Event to Shine a Light on Hollywood's Most Pressing Issue

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Conscious Recovery by CLARE gathered thought leaders and influencers from across the music, entertainment, and government industries today to have a serious discussion about the state of addiction in Hollywood. The 2015 State of Addiction is an annual event hosted by Conscious Recovery in celebration of the anniversary of the treatment center's launch just one year ago. This year's theme, addiction in Hollywood, is not only timely but will hopefully raise the awareness needed to move the industry to action in providing more support to those struggling with substance abuse.

This year's State of Addiction: Hollywood panel discussion was moderated by Chris Gardner, journalist for The Hollywood Reporter. Gardner, who has 15 years of experience covering feature film, celebrities, culture and the business of the entertainment industry, was joined by panelists:

-- Stephen Moyer, actor (star of HBO's television series True Blood) and
CLARE Foundation board member
-- Brian Gersh, film producer and former agent with the William Morris
Agency who has represented Hollywood A-listers
-- Harold Owens, Senior Director of MusiCares/MAP Fund, the National
Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (GRAMMY Organization) addiction
recovery program
-- Dae Medman, Director of Employee Assistance Program, Actor's Fund
-- Kevin McLaughlin, Sober Coach with over 15 years of working with people
in the music and entertainment industry
-- Jennifer Musselman, Sr. Director of Strategy and Innovation for CLARE
Foundation, who oversees the program treatment services at Conscious
Recovery and formerly Sr. Director of Communications at MTV Networks'
Kids and Family Entertainment for Nickelodeon
"It was truly an honor to participate in today's panel discussion," said Dea Medman, director of the employee assistant program at the Actor's Fund. "I understand first-hand how devastating addiction can be and I believe now is the time for Hollywood to have an honest conversation about the pervasiveness of this issue in the industry."

Assemblymember Richard Bloom (CA-50), who sits on the Arts and Entertainment committee in Sacramento, were among many state and county elected officials in attendance. Together they discussed and explored potential policy solutions to this problem. Currently, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) only provides medical insurance coverage that includes substance abuse treatment, anti-depressant, anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic medication to what they consider "Tier I" actors. Providing mental health coverage for all would be ideal. Also, there is no mandate in place that requires studios to have trained mental health professionals capable of conducting assessments and interventions present on-set. While this would be beneficial for all talent, it would be especially beneficial for those under the age of 18, who are most vulnerable to the stress of the industry and substance abuse.

"While Oscar winners can afford to pay the $60,000 - $90,000 a month for substance abuse treatment services, we're advocating for the, extras, costume designers, grips and up-and-coming actors who are part of SAGs more than 100,000 members often underinsured or have no insurance at all," said Jennifer Musselman, senior director of strategy and innovation for CLARE Foundation and former Nickelodeon executive. "The industry needs a strategy for prevention and intervention. It starts with today's conversation around on-set access to mental health professionals and expanded affordable care coverage for all."

Conscious Recovery by CLARE, is a non-profit intensive-outpatient substance abuse treatment facility located just seven blocks from the beach in Santa Monica, CA. Conscious Recovery was introduced by CLARE Foundation one year ago, as an innovative treatment program that offers highly effective drug and alcohol counseling services to mid-market clients. Treatment is focused on client's strengths, needs and aspirations, and sessions are conducted primarily by doctorate and masters level clinicians who are trained to support most co-occurring disorders. Conscious Recovery is currently in-network with Anthem Blue Cross and accepts most PPO insurance plans. As one of the few providers on the Westside in-network with insurance companies, Conscious Recovery offers a uniquely affordable and effective treatment option that truly helps increase access to quality care for all.

Ice-T Finds Warm Welcome at Bunker Hill Community College

Ice-T Finds Warm Welcome at Bunker Hill Community College

BOSTON, Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Grammy Award-winning artist Ice-T spoke as part of Bunker Hill Community College's Compelling Conversations speaker series on February 26, delivering a lively talk that drew laughs and applause from an overflow audience. Before his presentation, Ice-T enjoyed a lunch prepared by Culinary Arts students and interacted with students in two Learning Community Seminars, "Connecting to Your Inner Orange Line: Next Stop, Community College" and "Do the Right Thing."

Ice-T described losing both of his parents at an early age and finding a substitute family as an affiliate of the Rollin' 60's Crip Gang in Los Angeles, California. He enlisted as a U.S. Army Ranger and served four years, he said, but when a sergeant told him he wouldn't make it in real life, Ice-T decided to "stop being a chess piece on a board." Eventually he transformed what he called crime rhymes into a rap career as the self-proclaimed original gangster, and paid his dues in a handful of low-budget films before winning better roles.

Offering encouragement to the largely student audience, Ice-T said, "You are starting from a better place than I did. You're right where you should be." He advised students to choose their own path, stay focused and be willing to work hard. After Ice-T's talk, BHCC English major and veteran Robert Harrigan rapped a rhyme he wrote about suicide and PTSD that won sustained applause from Ice-T and the audience.

Born Tracy Marrow in Newark, New Jersey, Ice-T launched his rap music career in 1984 in the film Breakin' and went on to record a string of groundbreaking rap records. He subsequently formed the thrash metal band Body Count. His acting career includes roles in the films New Jack City, Ricochet, Trespass, Johnny Mnemonic, Surviving the Game, Tank Girl, and on NBC-TV's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, where he plays Detective Fin Tutuola. At 17 years his is the longest running stint for a television cop. He serves as a mentor for at-risk youth.

For more than a decade, Compelling Conversations has brought high-profile speakers to Bunker Hill Community College to discuss their professional experience and provide inspiration for students--from actor Giancarlo Esposito to boxer Laila Ali, filmmaker Ken Burns, author and political commentator Bob Woodward and former president of Ireland Mary Robinson.

Sony Pictures Entertainment's Faith Label AFFIRM Films Options Book The Devil in Pew Number Seven, Partners with Mass Hysteria Entertainment

Sony Pictures Entertainment's Faith Label AFFIRM Films Options Book The Devil in Pew Number Seven, Partners with Mass Hysteria Entertainment

CULVER CITY, Calif., Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, AFFIRM Films and Mass Hysteria Entertainment Inc. announced their partnership to develop a motion picture based on the book, The Devil In Pew Number Seven. Written by Rebecca Nichols Alonzo with Bob DeMoss, and released by Tyndale House Publishers Inc. in 2010, The Devil In Pew Number Seven tells the true story of Rebecca Nichols, a young girl who loses her parents when they stand up against evil within their church. Decades later, Rebecca must address if it was worth losing everything.

"Rebecca Nichols Alonzo's story touched our whole team," said Rich Peluso, Senior Vice President of AFFIRM Films. "Her journey through healing and forgiveness recounted before thousands of people across the country proved both engrossing and engaging. We look forward to working with Rebecca, Dan Grodnik and Steve Armour to bring this story to film."

"The Devil in Pew Number Seven is a compelling look at the power of love and forgiveness," said Mass Hysteria CEO and Producer Dan Grodnik. "We are excited to begin the creative journey with Rich Peluso and his AFFIRM Films team."

Steve Armour has been hired to adapt the book. Armour is repped by Frank Wuliger at The Gersh Agency and managed by Corey Trent Ackerman of FreshMaker Media.

Rebecca never felt safe as a child. In 1969, her father, Robert Nichols, moved to Sellerstown, North Carolina, to serve as a pastor. There, he found a small community eager to welcome him--with one exception. Glaring at him from pew number seven was a man obsessed with controlling the church. Determined to get rid of anyone who stood in his way, he unleashed a plan of terror that was more devastating and violent than the Nichols family could have ever imagined. Refusing to be driven away by acts of intimidation, Rebecca's father stood his ground, until one night when an armed man walked into the family's kitchen . . . And Rebecca's life was shattered. If anyone had a reason to harbor hatred and seek personal revenge, it would be Rebecca. Yet "The Devil in Pew Number Seven" tells a different story. It is the amazing true saga of relentless persecution, one family's faith and courage in the face of it, and a daughter whose parents taught her the power of forgiveness.

-Re-telling of classic Star Wars adventures in LEGO® brick form will help fans of all ages "catch up" on the legend -

ENFIELD, Conn., Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The LEGO Group, world renowned manufacturer of construction toys, today announced that Disney XD has acquired LEGO® Star Wars(TM):Droid Tales for airing later this year. The animated content series consists of five 22-minute episodes that re-tell the Star Wars saga in chronological order from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace up through Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Disney XD is also currently home to the animated hit series Star Wars Rebels.

"Since we introduced our first LEGO Star Wars set in 1999, we have seen and heard from countless Star Wars fans who have used LEGO bricks to tell their own version of this timeless story, re-enacting favorite scenes and imagining new story lines," said Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. "LEGO Star Wars:Droid Tales gives us an opportunity to share highlights of the Star Wars story with a sense of humor and excitement that can only be conveyed through the LEGO brick, and will be a fun resource for families as they gear up for the next movie."

As its title suggests, Droid Tales is a re-telling of the Star Wars universe through the eyes of C-3P0 and R2-D2. Following their victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, seen at the close of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, C-3PO and R2-D2 have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels with the tales of their adventures that led to the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing and suddenly viewers are taken on a new adventure that leads to encounters with familiar faces and places that prompt the re-telling of the entire saga. The series offers all of the playful humor that viewers expect from LEGO Star Wars.

Information on airdates for each episode is not yet available. Additional LEGO Star Wars activities to get the family caught up will launch throughout the year.

Studio Movie Grill Announces Five New Theaters in Texas, California and Pennsylvania - Bringing Its Innovative In-Theater Dining Experience to Tens of Thousands More

DALLAS, Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Brian Schultz, CEO and Founder of Studio Movie Grill (SMG) (, long considered the leader of in-theater dining exhibition, recently announced a major expansion initiative and the openings of new theaters in Pennsylvania and California as well as three new locations in the Texas market. Since Schultz developed the concept in 1993 and established SMG in 2000, the company has swiftly grown to 19 locations and 190 screens in nine states. These new locations will add 53 screens, and expand operations to ten states, ranking Studio Movie Grill 20th largest exhibitor in the U.S.

"Studio Movie Grill is excited to continue its expansion and to be on the forefront of enormous growth in our segment of the movie exhibition industry," said Schultz. "We take great pride in continually modernizing our concept with a focus on a relaxing, no-rush guest experience. By creating an appealing, comfortable environment enhanced by the best technology, 100% reserved seating, dedicated service and a continually evolving, eclectic menu, SMG makes movie going easy and enjoyable."

SMG's first location in Pennsylvania, SMG Upper Darby, is set to open in Q2 of this year at 55 S. 69(th) Street. The 37,103 square-foot establishment will showcase an upscale social destination with premium bar and lounge, nine screens with enhanced Dolby sound systems and Christie DLP powered projectors along with QSC speakers and Masterimage 3D systems with VIP seating for 1,475.

Opening this summer, SMG Simi Valley will be the first location for the company in Southern California. It will be the second SMG in the state. SMG Rocklin, a 9-screen, 35,000-square foot theater, opened to enormous and continuing success at the end of 2014.

Simi Valley Town Center, a 628,000-square-foot shopping, dining and entertainment destination will be anchored by the new-to-market Studio Movie Grill. The theater will be located at 1555 Simi Town Center Way on the north side of State Highway 118. The highly anticipated SMG Simi Valley location, scheduled to open in Q3 of 2015, will feature 9 screens in a 41,311 square-foot facility with VIP seating for 963.

The next SMG opening in Texas will be in Tyler in April as an anchor for the master-designed and pedestrian-friendly outdoor destination Village at Cumberland Park located at 8954 S. Broadway Avenue. Housed in 44,500 square feet, this location will contain12 screens and over 1,500 seats.

In Q3 SMG The Colony, Texas will open its doors as the 9(th) SMG location in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. With 11 screens and 1,280 seats, this 48,870 square-foot theater will mark SMG's 23(rd) location and 11(th) in Texas.

An additional 12 screens will be added to the rapidly growing SMG concept in Q4 with the addition of SMG Pearland to the Houston market at 8440 S. Sam Houston E. Parkway in Houston.

The five newest additions to the SMG family will focus on comfort and ease, offering casual dining and lounge areas for socializing before or after the main feature as well as in-theater dining. Definitive touch points will be reflected in every location, as SMG refines its architectural and design elements to achieve a consistent identity and build on its already avid fan base.

"The Studio Movie Grill is so much more than movies," explains Schultz. "We offer one-stop destinations for dining, entertainment, and a welcoming place to meet with friends and family. We're a great choice for both special occasions and a simple night out. SMG is excited to transform the typical cinema experience and offer a community gathering place alongside dinner and a movie."

Constantly redefining its dining options, 2015 will be no different, and SMG's chefs will continue to innovate and look at small plate, healthy and regional trends. There will also be a focus on farm fresh produce and house made menu options. New menu items to look for include Sriracha chicken flatbread, hand made pulled pork spring rolls, new salad options and some surprising new finger food desserts - this alongside perennial SMG fan favorites such as Coconut Chicken and Artisan Pizzas. Local craft beers round out extensive premium liquor and wine offerings.

Studio Movie Grill's mission is to "open hearts and minds one story at a time" and the company proudly supports local initiatives through community outreach and by offering programs that make an impact. One example is SMG's Special Needs Screenings for families raising children with special needs. Established over seven years ago, these screenings offer first-run family movies free to children with special needs and their siblings while partnering with local non-profits serving these families. SMG's Chef's for Children program allows for a portion of sales from certain menu items to further benefit its special needs partners. Alongside mainstream blockbuster films, SMG With A Twist provides affordable alternate, educational and family programming. This unique programming supports local community initiatives, artistic creation and public awareness in SMG neighborhoods.

In appreciation for their service and to provide the best for its guests, SMG is extremely proud to announce that all security officers assigned to any SMG present and future will be military veterans. The company specifically chose G4S for its security services because of their initiative regarding the hiring of returning military veterans as part of the White House's Joining Forces campaign. G4S continues to be a destination employer for veterans and according to Civilian Jobs News is one of the best places for veterans to work.

SMG is a popular event venue and the choice of some of the largest corporations and organizations in the country, hosting over 2,500 private events each year. SMG's Private Events team is on hand to facilitate meetings, seminars, product training, employee appreciation, team building, private parties and movie premiers. Private event packages include state-of-the-art digital projection and presentation equipment, complete audio/video capabilities, Wi-Fi, gaming and full service food and beverage packages.

As America Celebrates Women's History Month in March By 'Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives,' ENDcrowd Calls Attention to Sex Trafficking in the United States With Screenings of Empowering Documentary In Plain Sight

Film shares harrowing, real-life accounts of sex trafficking survivors as ENDcrowd raises awareness and funds to help women: To learn more or to fund a campaign:

RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --As we reflect on the numerous contributions women have made in shaping the history and legislation of the United States during Women's History Month in March - this year themed Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives - is sharing the stories of courageous women whose names many don't yet know.

A nonprofit, crowdfunding platform focused on raising awareness and funding for the fight against human trafficking, ENDcrowd is the official fundraising partner of the empowering documentary, In Plain Sight, which is screening in select locations in March. The film serves to honor the survivors of these horrific crimes and as a call to action in combating sex trafficking in the US and around the world.

Through the eyes of women who have been there, In Plain Sight shares the stories of thousands of women and children forced, coerced or deceived into the commercial sex trade every year in the US and goes behind the scenes with the advocates who are working with these survivors to restore their lives and provide hope for their future.

"I was raised in a household of heroic women...I now live in a household of amazing women. As we honor women's contributions to American history, it is our hope that we will also rally in the name of heroic women who stood bravely against injustice and inequality to put a stop to human trafficking," said Joe Schmidt, founder of "It's a common belief that this is strictly a third-world country issue. But, this is an ongoing assault on basic human rights happening to women in our own country every day. These women need our help so that they can live healthy, happy lives and become the next generation of women to make a difference."

In Plain Sight, executive produced and narrated by award-winning singer/songwriter Natalie Grant, focuses on the work of six female abolitionists who founded non-profit, aftercare homes and assistance programs, which have had a profound impact on the survivors who share their harrowing experiences on screen. The film highlights stories of hope emerging from the darkness, while opening the eyes of Americans to the human trafficking issues that exist in the US.

Beating Goliath at His Own Game

Beating Goliath at His Own Game

The 2014 Litigator Award Winners median benchmark Verdict & Settlement hits a record high in excess of $500 million dollars.

BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In the Lawyer Rating publishing industry, being a member of the old guard used to be enough. Today a small conservative group of forward-thinking trial lawyers, who founded the Litigator Awards, are beating some of the world's most powerful brands in publishing.

Photo -
Photo -

While the big box publishers keep giving the public less and less to like with "peer popularity" ratings, The Litigator Awards are upsetting the status quo and beating goliath at his own game. We sum it up in two words: "Results Matter." We knew if we could tie an award rating to a metric that we could measure, with that measurement being verifiable Verdict & Settlement Dollar Outcome Data rather than a committee-based peer popularity contests, we'd have something totally unique. We'd have an Award Rating the public would trust and feel good about.

Our story starts with people. We talked to hundreds of them, and, to no ones surprise, we found that people today want: #1, a trusted, reliable, completely independent resource to help them distinguish great lawyers in an endless sea of choice; and #2, an award rating that reflects actual litigation achievement. And, they want to do it quickly online, through Google Search.

In a category full of sameness, the authenticity of the Litigator Awards truly stands apart. It resonates with people everywhere (clients and referring professionals alike) because it truly identifies the Top 1% of all lawyers in more than 72 specific fields of expertise. Not based on friendship, popularity, old-boy networks, or other hocus pocus, but by verifying the benchmark litigation triumphs that define greatness.

What's more, we designed custom micro-sites that spotlight the triumphs of award-winning law firms individually, offering the "Credibility Currency" that is the lifeblood of online advertising. Pushing traffic to Award Winners is National CNN Media Campaign, in which promos were aired across four of the most watched Prime Time CNN Shows, including Anderson Cooper 360, Erin Burnett Up Front, Wolf Blitzer (Special), and CNN Prime News.

The value proposition is too compelling for most law firms to ignore. So much so that the Litigator Awards are unseating the most entrenched lawyer rating brands in the industry, and the most powerful institutions anywhere.

Of the nearly 1.1 million lawyers that may be considered, only a select few will ever stand among this fraternity of super-star trial lawyers. In fact, the 2014 Litigator Award Winners median benchmark Verdict & Settlement hit an all time record high in excess of $500 million dollars per award winner.

We are proud to be conferring 2014 Litigator Award ratings to some of the most prestigious and accomplished litigators in the nation.

President Barack Obama Conducts StoryCorps Interview of White House Mentee Noah McQueen On One-Year Anniversary Of The My Brother's Keeper Initiative

President Barack Obama Conducts StoryCorps Interview of White House Mentee Noah McQueen On One-Year Anniversary Of The My Brother's Keeper Initiative

In Interview for Groundbreaking Oral History Project, 18 Year-Old McQueen Discusses How He Turned Around His Life with President Obama

Excerpt to Air on NPR's "Morning Edition" Friday, February 27

NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- StoryCorps, the oral history project that provides people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve their stories, will release an historic interview conducted at the White House last week. President Barack Obama speaks with Noah McQueen, a mentee in the White House Mentorship Program, which is designed to make a concrete impact on a group of young people by providing them with mentoring and exposure to new opportunities. In conversation with the President, the 18 year-old McQueen speaks openly about his journey from being a troubled teen to being a young man whose life is defined by academic, artistic and athletic success and a commitment to mentoring fellow at-risk youth in his community.

StoryCorps recorded President Obama's interview of McQueen in the Roosevelt Room on Friday, February 20, and will release the audio at 6:20am EST on Friday, February 27, the one-year anniversary of My Brother's Keeper. An edited version will be available at and will air in this Friday's broadcast of NPR's "Morning Edition."

Noah McQueen is a senior at Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr. High School in Prince George's County, Maryland. There he is involved in many extracurricular activities, serving as student ambassador, editor of the newspaper, anchor/producer of the school's news broadcast, member of the improvisational acting team and an all-county football player. He is the recipient of the school's Freedom Award, presented for overall outstanding achievement and academic turnaround, and is president of AMATE (African American Males Aspiring to Excel). He inspires youth ages 7-17 through mentorship and speaks to at-risk youth at neighboring schools. McQueen recently started a mentoring program at Barack Obama Elementary School, in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. After graduating from high school later this year he hopes to attend Morehouse College, in Atlanta, Georgia, to study mass communication and education.

Broderick Johnson, Assistant to the President and White House Cabinet Secretary, and the Chair of the My Brother's Keeper Task Force,said, "The inspiring conversation between President Obama and Noah McQueen speaks volumes about the President's vision and personal commitment to the notion that we must invest in the lives of our country's young people. Over the past year, this initiative has already begun to impact young people like Noah. It is my hope that those who hear this conversation will find their own ways to bring opportunity to, and instill optimism in, the young people of this nation."

It is becoming something of a tradition for sitting Presidents to participate in StoryCorps. Previously, President George W. Bush recorded an interview with his sister Doro Bush Koch and First Lady Laura Bush at the White House in November 2008.

About My Brother's Keeper

On February 27, 2014, the President unveiled the My Brother's Keeper initiative to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential. Through this initiative, the Administration is joining with cities and towns, businesses, and foundations who are taking important steps to connect young people to mentoring, support networks, and the skills they need to find a good job or go to college and work their way into the middle class.

About StoryCorps

Founded in 2003 by MacArthur Fellow Dave Isay, the nonprofit organization StoryCorps has given 100,000 Americans the chance to record interviews about their lives, pass wisdom from one generation to the next, and leave a legacy for the future. It is the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered. Participating in StoryCorps couldn't be easier: You invite a loved one, or anyone else you chose, to one of the StoryCorps recording sites. There you're met by a trained facilitator, who greets you and explains the interview process. You're then brought into a quiet recording room and seated across from your interview partner, each of you in front of a microphone. The facilitator hits "record," and you share a forty-minute conversation. At the end of the session, you walk away with a CD, and a digital file goes to the Library of Congress, where it will be preserved for generations to come.

StoryCorps shares edited excerpts of these stories with the world through popular weekly NPR broadcasts, animated shorts, digital platforms, and best-selling books. These powerful stories illustrate our shared humanity and show how much more we share in common than divides us.

StoryCorps is working to grow into an enduring national institution that celebrates the dignity, power, and grace that can be heard in the stories we find all around us, and helps us recognize that every life and every story matter equally. In the coming years StoryCorps hopes to touch the lives of every American family.

The first-ever permanent Graceland exhibition outside of Memphis will encompass over 28,000 square feet and include hundreds of artifacts from the Presley family's treasured Graceland Archives, showcasing the man, the performer and the music that revolutionized popular culture around the world. Visitors will experience an unprecedented journey through Elvis' life and career, beginning with his early days in Tupelo, Miss., through his first recording session in Memphis, rise to fame, Hollywood career, life at Graceland, the Las Vegas years and more. Graceland-produced videos will immerse guests in the experience, concluding with a 26-minute retrospective film featuring Elvis' greatest performances.

Some of the rare artifacts include Elvis' high school yearbooks, his first Gold Album, his 1957 Harley Davidson motorcycle, a 1962 Lincoln Continental, 1971 Stutz Blackhawk, jewelry and iconic stage wear from Elvis' live performances, including the first outfit worn on stage for his first concert at the International Hotel in 1969. Select artifacts will be rotated regularly with artifacts in the Graceland Archives, to keep the exhibit constantly evolving and fresh. The exhibition will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and tickets are priced at $22 plus taxes and fees, and available for purchase now.

The newly renamed and renovated Elvis Presley International Showroom will present Elvis-themed live shows for limited engagement runs on the very stage where Elvis performed for millions of guests during his record-breaking, seven-year stint from 1969 through 1976. The debut show will be "The Elvis Experience," a large-scale production replicating one of Elvis' legendary Las Vegas shows, starring actor Martin Fontaine and featuring 24 musicians and eight choir members portraying the original musicians and artists on stage with Elvis. The Elvis Experience is scheduled to open with the exhibition on April 23 and perform Tuesdays through Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and start at $49 plus taxes and fees. After this limited engagement, the property will feature other limited-run, Graceland-produced live shows in the Elvis Presley International Showroom.

Another exciting feature will be the new, "Elvis Presley's Graceland Wedding Chapel" which will be the first-ever wedding chapel in Las Vegas to be operated by Elvis Presley Enterprises. Additional information on the chapel and special packages will be announced in March. The chapel is also scheduled to open on April 23.

The grand opening of the exhibition, live show and wedding chapel will be marked with a star-studded celebration, with Priscilla Presley joining the roster of VIPs and celebrities on the red carpet. Tickets for the exclusive opening celebration and opening weekend are on sale now.

"Elvis is synonymous with Las Vegas and this property, so we are tremendously excited to have this new attraction and live show here to entertain Las Vegas visitors," said David Siegel, CEO of Westgate Resorts. "It is a true honor to join forces with Elvis Presley's Graceland to bring Elvis to the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. We are thrilled to have Elvis back in the building."

"After a 40 year absence, it's time for the authentic Elvis Presley to return to Las Vegas," stated Joel Weinshanker, Managing Partner of Graceland Holdings LLC. "Elvis redefined live entertainment in Las Vegas, so there's no better location for this new venture than the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, the very site where more people saw Elvis perform live than anywhere else in the world," Weinshanker said. "The extensive exhibition, live shows and wedding chapel will together create an unprecedented Elvis experience for visitors."
