The films of director Robert Zemeckis will be brought to life in a way that has nothing to do with a movie screen or projector.

The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs will honor Zemeckis with its “For The Record: Zemeckis”, which takes the music from the movies ands transforms it into a live theatrical concert experience. Performances are set for 8 p.m. June 18 and 19.

General admission tickets are $30 each and individual preferred table-seating tickets are $40 each. They can be bought online at www.acehotel.com/record
