Show happily slides back into the past
By Stephanie Cary Staff Writer
Charles Phoenix has been collecting Kodachrome slides for about 20 years.
And now, with collection in hand, the performer is bringing the past to Torrance.
His production, “Charles Phoenix’s Retro Southern California Slide Show,” will be presented at 8 p.m. Saturday at the James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance.
It includes more than 150 slides bought at estate sales and flea markets that illustrate the Southern California lifestyle of the ’50s and ’60s.
