Designer Robert Boyle will be doubly honored by the Art Directors Guild and the L.A. Board of Supervisors in Los Angeles on Oct. 27, Boyle’s 100th birthday.

ADG will dedicate its recently redesigned first-floor meeting room as Robert Boyle Studio 800.

The L.A. Board of Supervisors will also honor him, proclaiming Oct. 27 as “Robert Boyle Day” in Los Angeles.

IATSE, meanwhile, will grant Boyle special-membership recognition into its union.

Boyle has been a production designer for more than 90 pics, including “Fiddler on the Roof,” “The Shootist,” “Gaily, Gaily” and “North by Northwest.”
