Join the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation as we take our C&C series to the second largest performing arts center in the country. While LA's Music Center may be the youngest we have explored yet, the three historic theatres are all iconic in their own right. The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, and Mark Taper Forum make up the world-class center that has long served as an artistic and cultural focal point in Los Angeles.
In keeping with the youthful spirit of some of our newest theatres to be considered historic, this C&C falls in between the 54th birthdays of both the Mark Taper Forum and Ahmanson Theatre. If we're lucky, perhaps we will have even received an update on the reopening of The Music Center. Get your coffee and questions ready, and we will see you on Saturday, April 10 at 10am (Pacific timezone)!
This Zoom webinar is free and open to all, however pre-registration is required. Click here to register any time until the start of the webinar.
At a special virtual event on 13th March 2021, LAHTF announced its "Theatres At Risk" for 2021.

In August 2020 the City of San Gabriel announced that, in light of the current economic environment, they will review future operating scenarios for the Mission Playhouse.
One of the potential scenarios is the full closure of the Mission Playhouse in September 2020, which would see all staff terminated, regular maintenance eliminated, and all future events canceled.
LAHTF is in full support of the scenario which focuses on staff retention and keeping the Playhouse open in a limited capacity allowing for live streaming and filming events to continue.
Our annual meeting was held 8th March at the historic Globe Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.
LAHTF members and other interested supporters met our Board of Directors, mingled with other supporters, got an update on LAHTF's activities for the year, and were treated to the in-depth history of the Globe Theatre before embarking on mini tours around the theatre.
