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.
Hollywood's Biggest Night
LAHTF returned to the historic Chaplin Theater on the lot of the 104-year-old Raleigh Studios in Hollywood in February 2020 to celebrate the biggest awards show of the year!
LAHTF returned to Hollywood's world famous TCL CHINESE THEATRE in October 2019 with our signature ALL ABOUT behind-the-scenes tour.
Patrons were treated to exclusive backstage access, insight into historic preservation techniques, and even a Q&A with top experts from IMAX!
The legendary Earl Carroll Theatre announces a new tenant and lease on life.
LAHTF is thrilled to see a new tenant announced for the historic Earl Carroll Theatre. After working with the property owners behind the scenes for the last 18 months to secure a new tenant for the legendary venue, we couldn’t be more excited to see the tradition of entertainment continuing upon completion of the planned restoration. In the coming weeks, we look forward to hearing more and seeing a broader scope of plans for the restoration work being laid out by their team.
