Join LAHTF as we celebrate LA's Central Avenue and the center of the West Coast jazz scene. In the heart of it all stands the Lincoln Theatre, once considered the West Coast Apollo.
We explore one of the most culturally rich avenues in the US, take a trip through round the clock entertainment, and a look at how Central Avenue became the rapidly growing African American community that changed LA's landscape. You can almost hear the sounds of the legendary Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong now, can't you?
Grab a coffee or cocktail and have your questions ready as we present one of our most fascinating C&C's to date.
This Zoom webinar event kicks-off at 10am (Pacific timezone) on Saturday 30th July 2022 and is free and open to all, although registration is required. Click here to register.
Our most recent ALL ABOUT event took place at the historic Pantages Theatre in Hollywood in late April 2022.
Members and supporters were treated to rare access to many areas of the theatre, with members being afforded access to areas usually off-limits to patrons and not seen by the public for many years.
Following the ALL ABOUT theatre tour, for the first time in Los Angeles, Maria Cooper Janis, Dr. Amanda Foreman, and Glenn Frankel came together for a special conversation a few months shy of the 70th Anniversary of one of the greatest American westerns in film history.

At a special virtual event on 13th March 2021, LAHTF announced its "Theatres at Risk" for 2021.
If you weren't able to attend our event at the time, click here to watch our 50-minute presentation Los Angeles Theatres at Risk 2021, 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 10 Theatres at Risk for 2021, and conclude with information on how you can help LAHTF keep a watchful eye on the historic theatres of Los Angeles County.
