What to Know

- $25 (the fundraiser supports the landmark's Love the Lobby campaign)
- Flapper attire is recommended but not a must
Fancying-up in our finest flapper attire?
We haven't had many opportunities to vintage-out, sartorially, in recent months.
But if your fringe-y frock is just sitting limply on a hanger, looking forlorn and ready to be worn, there's a swell place to wear it on Saturday night, Jan. 23, all while helping a lovely landmark mark a big milestone anniversary.
The place where you'll be flapper-ing out?
The San Pedro palace of movies, song, and joyful community opened on Jan. 20, 1931, and along the way? Thousands upon thousands of Southern Californians have savored a host of cinematic treats, cultural wonders, and vibrant in-person performances.
Call it, accurately and with aplomb, one of our region's most robust, decades-weathering entertainment destinations.
But to keep that robust spirit, fundraisers are often in order, which is what this celebration will be.
A ticket is $25, and that money will help the Grand Vision Foundation to help the venue's Love the Lobby campaign.
Headlining the spirited, screen-based revelries?
Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys, so count on a swirl of delightful ditties that can trace their histories back to the era when the theater first turned on its marvelous marquee.
There's a Party Package, too, if you order fast, but you'll need to swing by the theater to pick up your party favors and ingredients to make a cocktail or mocktail.
Individual tickets, without a package attached, are also available.
Have you practiced your Lindy Hop? Are you thinking of giving yourself a home haircut, one that reflects the bobs that were popular not before the Warner Grand debuted?
You've still got time, SoCal flappers, and you've got a few days to book your ticket to the live-it-up livestream, too.
