The event will be held at the Linwood Dunn Theater of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, 1313 N. Vine St. (at Fountain) in Hollywood, Calif.
The event will begin at 8 p.m., with a pre-reception starting at 6:30 p.m. A number of friends and colleagues from many areas of the audio industry have been asked to speak on the personal and professional impact that Eargle had on them and the many areas of his endeavors.
