Angelenos donned their best dweller-of-the-night attire as Ace Hotel presented its annual Beastly Ball. The Halloween party featured DJs, drinks and costumed reveler’s best attempts at dark arts inside the swanky gothic lobby of the Theatre at Ace Hotel.

Before the bash, the theatre screened La Belle et la Bête alongside a reimagined, live score. The popular fairy tale Beauty and the Beast came to life in this operatic adaptation as part of the LA Opera's Off-Grand Series. Philip Glass composed an enchanting new score for Jean Cocteau’s 1946 cinematic masterpiece as live singers performed in synchronization with the actors in the film.
