LOS ANGELES’ HAYWORTH THEATRE RE-OPENING WITH KICKSTARTER LAUNCH FOR DYNASTY TYPEWRITER: “A NEW ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE”

Former Hollywood Improv booker and artistic director to lease Los Angeles cultural landmark in building owned and occupied by Tilted Productions.

The newly renovated venue is primed to be LA’s new hub for comedy, variety, screenings, and more.

After years booking A-list talent at The Hollywood Improv, visionary comedy producer Jamie Flam has set his sights on the historical Hayworth Theatre in the emerging Westlake/MacArthur Park neighborhood.

Originally opened in 1926, the venue has been meticulously restored by owners Jenji Kohan and Christopher Noxon, who worked with celebrated architect Linda Brettler. The space crackles with creative energy and is poised to become a crown jewel of LA entertainment. The theater will open with a Kickstarter campaign, a grand opening slated for March and preseason shows beginning in late 2017. This crowdfunded soft opening will afford the theater an opportunity to incorporate preliminary feedback from performers and audiences.

THE VENUE

Declared an LA cultural-historic landmark in 1981, The Hayworth building has been a creative hub for close to a century. It opened as The Masque Theater in 1926, and became home to one of the first tiki bars (The Vagabond’s House), and in the 1980’s and 90’s it was LA’s premiere revival movie house.  With it’s spacious lobby with bar, performer greenrooms backstage, and gorgeous 200 seat theater, The Hayworth is a gem that deserves this rebirth. The history extends next door, as it is adjacent to La Fonda de Los Camperos, the first mariachi restaurant in the world and a staple of LA culture. We will have a shared front patio space, and they have full bar for our artists and audience to hang out in before and after shows.

The venue is in the historic Westlake neighborhood, nestled between thriving Downtown, Koreatown, Silver Lake, and Echo Park. Once called the Champs-Élysées of Los Angeles, the area is regaining prominence with more artistic businesses and organizations popping up. We are excited to work with the local community and it’s leaders to embrace and celebrate its rich culture and turn it into another LA hub for the arts.

Public transit options, and rolling park land beckon commuters to live beyond the borders of Downtown LA. This colorful neighborhood boasts a culturally rich Central and South American community. (-Airbnb)
