To be held on Wednesday, January 30th at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre forecourt, the event will feature speakers, an art exhibit by Rob Prior, costumes and props from Stan's cameos and creations, a musical performance and a moment of remembrance centred around Stan Lee's hand and foot imprint. After a red carpet, the evening will continue with a private tribute inside the IMAX Theatre hosted by Kevin Smith.
