We've added a new section on our website. Please click ADVOCACY on the menu to visit our new page with updates on many of the important issues we are working on behind the scenes. Our most recent success story is the Earl Carroll Theatre. LAHTF worked with our preservation coalition for over 2 years to get the developer to preserve the theatre. CLICK HERE for more details.
ALL ABOUT Royce Hall - For the first time LAHTF presented our ALL ABOUT behind-the-scenes tour of the iconic Royce Hall on the UCLA campus. Attendees learned about the unique history of this building, and explored from the balcony to the basement. LAHTF members got to go on a special "tour loop" and enjoyed a members-only reception in the theatre Green Room. Join today for more members-only events!
LAHTF is pleased to announce that the Alex Theatre was the recipient of the 2016 Theatre of the Year Award and Andrea Humberger received the 2016 Gold Star for Distinguished Service. Awards were presented on Sunday, May 21 in the Alex Theatre forecourt, followed by a free backstage tour of the 91 year old Theatre for attendees. Congratulations!
Our First ALL ABOUT Tour was also our first tour of the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. The gracious management of the Playhouse gave us complete access to behind the scenes areas not open to the public. We were also treated to a live demonstration and mini-concert on the Mighty Wurlitzer by Edward Torres of LATOS.
Our Event in the recently discovered S. Charles Lee home was made even more memorable by our special surprise guest, Lee's only child, Connie Keiter. After Eric Lynxwiler's wonderful slide presentation, he interviewed Ms. Keiter and members of her family about her famous father. Attendees also enjoyed a lovely reception and self guided tours of the home.
Thanks to all who joined us for the ALL ABOUT tour of the 1927 MAYAN Theatre! We will be posting photos of the tour shortly. Thanks to the Club Mayan team for generously allowing us access, and our LAHTF Volunteers for all of your hard work!
The 3rd Night on Broadway on January 28th was a huge success! LAHTF had information tables in many theatres and shared the history of the theatres and the Theatre District with thousands of attendees. Plans are already underway for next year! CLICK HERE for more information.
