Marcus Loew famously said, “patrons buy tickets to theatres, not movies,” and this may not hold more true than with atmospheric theatres.

This Saturday 13th November at 6pm UK time / 1pm US ET / 10am US PT, the brilliant folk at the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation invite you to join them as they explore the quaint villages, European cities, and fantasy lands within theatres of the 1920s and 30s.

This design style was renowned US architect John Eberson’s signature, creating an experience for Americans who may never travel beyond the United States. We are incredibly lucky that so many have survived and are thriving as entertainment venues today, continuing to transport patrons to another time and place.

The presentation will start in Los Angeles, travel across the US, and then explore theatres around the globe. Whether under a perfect summer blue sky or a twinkling starry night, your imagination is certain to run wild and deliver you to a far away locale.

An earlier version of this presentation was given in conjunction with the UK CTA in April 2021 and was their highest-ever attended online event with praise being lavished by audiences about the scope and quality of LAHTF Board Member Mike Hume’s presentation. Mike has expanded the presentation even further over the last months, adding a couple of continents, so that Saturday’s will be the biggest and widest-ranging atmospherics presentation ever seen!

In this time of restricted travel, what better tonic than to escape into the extraordinary world of atmospherics with our friends at LAHTF!
