The 2nd show was an Ice Show starring Belita. After 2 weeks, the show ended and Senator Hornedo decided to keep the frozen stage as a public Ice-skating rink. 2 skaters from the show were hired as instructors. One male, Art Franklin and one female, Patricia Wallace. The Ice-rink remained open until May, when Senator Hornedo and his new wife embarked on their Honeymoon to Europe. Patricia and one of her students, Colin, fell in love and married in Los Angeles in July. They were married for 52 years. She passed away in January 2001 and Colin now lives in Ventura, Calif.
This theater opened on December 30, 1949, the property of Senator Alfredo Hornedo Suárez, with the name Blanquita, after his second wife, Blanca Maruri, with Lou Walter’s production “From New York to Paris”.
