Obama to Speak at DreamWorks Animation

Corrected post

On his visit to Los Angeles next week, President Obama will deliver remarks on the economy at a visit to DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, a White House official said on Thursday.

Obama will speak on  Nov. 26.

“The motion picture and television industry is a growing industry, and continues to create thousands of jobs across the country,” the White House official said.

In his previous visit to Los Angeles, Obama had dinner with DreamWorks Animation chieftain Jeffrey Katzenberg, one of his top donors and fundraisers.

The DreamWorks visit is part of a swing through Los Angeles that includes events to raise money for House and Senate Democratic campaign committees. On the evening of Nov. 25, Obama is scheduled to attend fundraisers at the home of Magic Johnson and Haim Saban. He also is scheduled for a fundraiser the next morning,  Nov. 26, at the home of “Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman, at an event to raise money for the Democratic National Committee.

Update: A previous version of this post misidentified the dates of fundraisers Obama is attending during his Los Angeles visit.
