Gathering for the Grand 2016: The Red Carpet

Celebrating the Warner Grand's 85th and Grand Vision's 20th Anniversaries

Saturday, April 9th was an unforgettable evening at the Warner Grand Theatre, honoring Grand Vision co-founder and San Pedro visionary, Gary Larson.

This annual gala benefit which featured dinner, an auction, dancing and a fantastic band, enables Grand Vision to continue to preserve and promote the historic Warner Grand Theatre and to instill in local children, a love and knowledge of music through our in-school Meet the Music program that has served over 9,000 youth to date.

Guests came dressed as their favorite movie stars and entered the theater along the red carpet in their tuxes and formal gowns.

Gary Larson was honored as a pioneer in the renaissance of downtown San Pedro. He has played a pivotal role in not only saving the Warner Grand Theatre, but also in transforming the historic Arcade Building on 6th Street into a beloved landmark. His vision was also instrumental in attracting Marymount California University's to locate its Waterfront Campus in San Pedro.

If you missed our Gala this year, please join us for our annual Gathering in 2017! The date will be announced soon!
