Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation presents their upcoming ALL ABOUT TOUR, at the beautiful Warner Grand Theatre.
 
The Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, the first sound-equipped theatre in the South Bay, opened to the public on January 20, 1931 with a star-studded gala premier. Jack Warner christened it "The Castle of Your Dreams”. The Warner Grand was created by its chief architect B. Marcus Priteca and designer A.T. Heinsbergen. Pritica later designed Hollywood's famous Pantages Theater as well many others.
 
LAHTF is dedicated to protecting and preserving the few remaining historic theatres constructed during the first half of the 20th Century.  The Theatres have become bricks and mortar legacies of the visionary showmen who built them and have evolved to become repositories of memories and meaning for the decades of audiences. The LAHTF is determined to ensure that these extraordinary theatres will endure and entertain for generations to come. Your contributions and participation makes the LAHTF possible.
