Warner Grand Theatre Embarks on New Venture with Marymount

On January 26, a five-month lease went into effect between Marymount College in Rancho Palos Verdes and Jerico Development, the property owners of 434 W. 6th Street, San Pedro, where the Grand Vision Foundation is located.
Marymount College is offering its students classes in music theory, jazz ensemble, drama and set design at the Grand Annex, a space for live music entertainment and other performances. A portion of Marymount’s lease payment is designated to further the work of the Grand Vision Foundation, whose mission is to "preserve and promote the historic Warner Grand Theatre and foster arts, cultural and educational activities in San Pedro and the Harbor/Peninsula area of Los Angeles.”

In addition, Marymount is renting the Warner Grand Theatre from the City of Los Angeles for three weeks in the spring for rehearsals and performances of its theater production, You Can’t Take It With You. The play will run April 28–30th.  read more...
