THANK YOU to all who battled the weather to attend our ALL ABOUT Tour of the Los Angeles Theatre! We've heard from many people who had never been in this magnificent Theatre before, and are so glad to be able to share the history and explore S. Charles Lee's masterpiece with you. Thanks to our hardworking volunteers, and to the Broadway Theatre Group for giving us such complete access! Many beautiful photos are being shared on Facebook, check them out! We will add some to our website album in the near future.
We also hope to announce our NEXT All About very soon, stay tuned!
Executive Director Escott O.Norton and Co-Founder Hillsman Wright are representing the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation at the Annual Conference of the League of Historic American Theatres in Nashville, Tennessee. This intensive 4 day program brings together the top experts in preservation and theatre operations with theatre owners and proprietors from all over North America. In addition to theatre tours in the host city and environs, educational seminars and networking sessions allow attendees to share ideas and success stories so we can learn from each other. It is really good to know how many dedicated people there are working all over the country to save and revitalize these precious theatres. In coming weeks we will report on some of the success stories from around the country that are relevant to the theatres we are working on in Los Angeles. Your support allows us to have access to this valuable resource. Thank you!
