SAN PEDRO, CA — The continuing restoration of the Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro is being aided by two non-profit groups and films showings to raise funds to aid the effort.

The old theater already has received some help. In 1996, after a private owner threatened to turn the Warner Grand into a swap meet, the city of Los Angeles bought the theater and upgraded the building – adding air conditioning, features that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and improvements to the electrical system.

Further upgrades have included installing a new movie screen and a new projection and sound system, as well as replacing the theater’s 1,500 seats with replicas of the originals.
