LOS ANGELES, CA —Saturday, 9/26, – Free Tours of the Million Dollar and Morosco (Club 740) Theatres

Broadway Theatre History Review
Program begins at 11 am, Million Dollar Theatre (3rd & Broadway)

The Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation (www.lahtf.org) celebrates the first year of our popular All About… theatre docu-tours on Saturday, September 26, 11am, at the Million Dollar Theatre at 3rd & Broadway. Admission is free and the public is invited.

On the Big Screen, Theatre historian Ed Kelsey will present highlights from the PowerPoint theatre histories he created so artfully for our stops over the past 12 months at the Orpheum, Million Dollar, Los Angeles, Palace, Globe/Morosco, Rialto, Tower, Mayan and Belasco. Comprehensive projection booth-to-backstage-to-basement walking tours of the Globe/Morosco and Million Dollar will round out the event.

The All About Anniversary Tour provides an opportunity to re-visit two popular but seldom seen historic theatres and give newcomers who missed earlier All Abouts… a chance to “catch-up”. Future All About… tours are set for October 17 and November 21.

The Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to protecting, preserving and sustaining the operation of Southern California’s historic theatres. For additional information, visit our website at www.lahtf.org.

The tour was terrific. It showed off all levels of the Million Dollar and then took us from the basement and orchestra pit of the Morosco to the dusty upper balcony, closed for decades.
