30 iconic moments to celebrate 30 years of 'Twin Peaks'

#TodayinTVHistory, 30 years ago, Twin Peaks premiered and a cultural phenomenon was born.

To our valued PaleyFest Attendees and Paley Center Community,

As you are aware, the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to remain of the utmost public concern. For several weeks now, the Paley Center, along with our venue host, The Dolby Theatre, has monitored the situation closely, staying in daily contact with local, state, and federal partners, as well as following the recommendations issued by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and following the guidelines of the local health department. Based on the most recent news and out of an abundance of concern, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s PaleyFest. While we were looking forward to presenting another stellar lineup of PaleyFest events, the safety of our event participants, guests, and staff is the highest priority. We are exploring options to reschedule the festival and all ticket purchases will be honored for the new dates.

We will be in touch shortly with next steps and individuals who are unable to attend may email [email protected] to request a refund.

We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time, and look forward to welcoming you to PaleyFest later this year.
