As the home of motion pictures and entertainment, Hollywood has led the way from bringing us the first red carpet movie premiere as we know it today to converting a nearly 90-year-old cinema into the world’s largest IMAX theatre. The boulevard has seen it all; vaudeville and nickelodeons, legitimate powerhouses and movie palaces. You won’t want to miss this informative and image-packed virtual stroll through the evolution of the iconic Hollywood Boulevard.
Join the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation and the UK's Cinema Theatre Association for another exclusive and popular webinar collaboration.
The Zoom webinar event will take place at 9:30am PT (5:30pm BST) on Saturday, May 20th. Tickets £5 (£3 Members), roughly $6/$4. Book your tickets here.
Our most recent ALL ABOUT event took place at the historic El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, in early November.
Members and supporters went behind-the-scenes, from the stage basement to the followspot booth way up at the back of the auditorium, and everywhere in between.
This 1926 theatre is rich in Hollywood movie history and our friends at Disney and the El Capitan gave us an all-access pass to much of the theatre, along with a fantastic presentation on the Wurlitzer organ with a 1-to-1 Q+A with Rob Richards, the El Capitan's organist since 1999.

At a special virtual event on 27th August 2022, LAHTF announced its "Theatres at Risk" for 2022.
If you weren't able to attend our event at the time, click here to watch our 35-minute presentation Los Angeles Theatres at Risk 2022, on YouTube.
The presentation introduces viewers to LAHTF's risk rating process, developed so that all theatres are assessed on the same non-subjective criteria. We then dive into the Top 11 Theatres at Risk for 2022, and conclude with information on how you can help LAHTF keep a watchful eye on the historic theatres of Los Angeles County.
