Thank you to everyone who attended and celebrated this historic occasion with us!
The night began with festive mingling on zoom – with some guests dressed to the nines in sophisticated 1920s attire. We were blown away by the outfits on the “red carpet!” Then we segued into the full “show” – with drinks, cake, many cheers and no shortage of laughter. Many of Grand Vision’s regulars attended – and so did new friends from northern California, Connecticut, Michigan, Washington and Arizona!
“A really nice event. Thank you for remembering to celebrate this central thread in the fabric of San Pedro.” -Tim McOsker
Grand Vision’s Executive Director, Liz Schindler Johnson and Artistic Director, Taran Schindler were the energetic hosts for the night. Councilman Joe Buscaino “stopped by” to wish the Warner Grand a happy birthday, express his appreciation to Grand Vision, and share the City’s plans to renovate the Theatre next year.
“I’ve always believed that the Warner Grand is a powerful economic and creative resource for the entire Harbor Area.” -Joe Buscaino
Afterwards, many audience members thanked the Grand Vision staff for presenting a warm and engaging virtual atmosphere. “It really felt like a party” was a common refrain! The audience offered virtual claps and thumbs up, and shared words of love and appreciation, making it a truly memorable night.
“San Pedro is so blessed to have the wonderful Warner Grand in our community.” -Rica Viola
