Warner Grand Theatre Update
SAN PEDRO, CA — In other fire inspection news, this was sent to us by the Warner Grand:
Due to the recent fires in Rhode Island, the Los Angeles Fire Department is very carefully reviewing all large public spaces for current fire safety regulations.
The Warner Grand Theatre will remain closed until a re-inspection by the Los Angeles Fire Department on 3/27/03.
Regrettably, this cancels the plans for “Sunshine” and also for a pre-Academy Awards party this year, but please stay tuned for upcoming events! The foreign film series is still in the works for 4/19, 5/10, 6/14, 6/28 of this year, and many live programs are planned as well.
