CicLAvia Explores Broadway draws hundreds to the Million Dollar Theatre!
Over 200 people came downtown to explore as part of this event organized by CicLAvia to introduce people to the new route for the main CicLAvia ride on Oct 5th. Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation volunteers were on hand to give free tours of the Million Dollar Theatre to attendees while Aaron Paley (pictured), Executive Director of CicLAvia gave walking tours of Broadway and the LA Conservancy gave tours of the Bradbury Building.
It was heartwarming to give these tours. Many people mentioned having been to the Million Dollar when they were kids, and shared their special memories. There was even an old gentleman who told us that he had been a boxer in his youth and had boxed on the Million Dollar stage!
We are in the planning stages for the CicLAvia Heart of LA event! Details to come later but we hope to have at least one Broadway theatre open for tours!
