How much are we all loving the trial lighting happening at the Tower Theatre?

In more renovation news: Ghost signs on the 8th St façade have been covered with a protective layer and terracotta wall tile restoration has started.

Graffiti is being addressed as part of the terracotta restoration. The stained-glass window over the Broadway entrance has been protected while work is taking place.

As a reminder, LAHTF is in contact with the design team and architects running the project and is closely monitoring progress at the Tower Theatre.

Work continues on the forthcoming flagship Apple Store at the Tower Theatre, where we're now starting to see exterior developments taking place.

By far the most noticeable change at the Tower – and only at night – is a new lighting scheme being trialed on the 8th St façade and the clock tower.

We're not entirely sure how long it has been since the Tower's iconic clock face was last lit up, but we're delighted to see it lit again! If you pop by at night, be sure to tag us in your photos so we can see and share!

We are excited to announce LAHTF’s partnership with the City of La Puente in securing a future for the iconic star sign from the theater. While we weren’t able to announce it sooner, the City was an integral piece of the sign being saved, along with the owner and demo crew ensuring the Star was lowered safely. A few details are still being ironed out, but as we have all week, we will continue bringing you updates on the next steps and progress as soon as we are able. Thank you for all your comments, likes, shares, emails, and donations! We passed $1,500 in 2 days! We aren’t done yet so please continue to share and donate if you are able.

The Star’s historic neon sign has been brought down safely in one piece by the on-site demo crew. On to the next step of relocation for restoration. We love seeing the community, neon and theater lovers, and preservationists come together in raising awareness and funds! We are nearing the $1,000 in less than 15 hours which is amazing but this is only the beginning. Keep sharing and spreading the word. Donate if you are able, no amount is too small or too big. We are better together!

Today kicks off our Star Theater fundraising campaign to help cover the costs of the neon sign's relocation and restoration. Help us reach the goal of $10,000 to secure the future of this historic La Puente icon. 100% of your donation will go to the Star Theater neon sign. This first phase could well exceed the goal set and wouldn't that be a wonderful thing! Let's work together, spread the word, and donate today to support this historic piece of the Star Theater.

We will keep you updated every step of the way as we are able and look forward to sharing some good news on the sign and fundraising progress very soon!

It is a dark day in La Puente. S. Charles Lee’s one-of-a-kind Star Theater was demolished this morning to make way for 22 condos. LAHTF is working behind the scenes to try to save the Star Sign, but the theatre is gone.

There are lots of lessons to be learned from this loss, the main lesson is that we all need to support the theatres that mean something to us NOW before it is too late. If the theatre is open, buy tickets, go to a show, and bring your friends. If it is not operating, get involved. Form a "Friends of…” group, meet with the owners, and city officials, and reach out to local preservation organizations and get them involved.

The LA Historic Theatre Foundation is here to support and consult with local community groups, offer advice and assistance, and rally our members when needed. We can’t do it alone though, it takes everyone: local residents, the business community, government officials, and non-profit orgs like LAHTF. Let’s not stand by and watch another unique historic theatre fall.

LAHTF's first ALL ABOUT of 2019 was at Hollywood Post 43's Legion Theater on Saturday, April 6, 2019.

LAHTF was honored to be the first to welcome the public into the theatre and Post 43 building after undertaking an extensive multi-million dollar renovation.

The Legion Theater would makes its public debut the following week as part of the 2019 TCM Class Film Festival.

The Legion Theater is now able to project film in 16mm, 35mm, and 70mm formats in addition to using its DCI-compliant Christie digital cinema projector.

04/04/2019

City of La Puente sets the culturally-significant Star Theatre for City Council vote on April 9th after Planning Commission voted unanimously to demolish by adopting a Statement of Overriding Considerations.

Following the split public comments on Tuesday, March 5th, the Commission completely bypassed any discussion of the proposal or any public comments and immediately voted unanimously in favor of Staff’s recommendation that the 22-unit condo project proceed and S. Charles Lee’s historic Star Theatre be demolished in spite of recognizing that there are significant impacts culturally, historically, and environmentally.

The Staff’s recommendation with Commission support will be presented to the City Council on Tuesday, April 9th. We encourage you to attend if you would like to speak or submit comments via email in lieu of attending. For more detailed information on Tuesday's meeting, head over to our website - www.lahtf.org
