The Warner Grand Experience

“My dad performed in so many productions (at the Theatre) that by the time I was in high school, I practically grew up on the balcony. Nothing happens without art, spirit and culture.”

Amy Grat, San Pedro Resident

“I’ve always been a big fan of art deco architecture so I was thrilled that this theatre existed. We like to help out with anything that can help downtown San Pedro grow.”

Karen and Al Basiulis, San Pedro Residents
