This May's film selection will be The Oyler House: Richard Neutra's Desert Retreat  by Director Mike Dorsey


In 1959 a working-class government employee in the tiny desert town of Lone Pine, California, asked world-famous modern architect Richard Neutra to design his modest family home. To his surprise, Neutra agreed. Thus began an unlikely friendship that would last for the rest of Neutra’s life. The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat tells the story of this house and its stunning desert setting, through interviews with Richard Oyler, actress Kelly Lynch, who currently owns the house, Neutra'stwo sons, and well-known LA real estate agent Crosby Doe.
