Ricardo Montalban Theatre Façade Renovation
Project Area: Hollywood
Project: Ricardo Montalban Theatre Façade Renovation
Project Location: 1615 N. Vine Street
Project Type: CRA/LA Initiated
Renovation of the Doolittle Theatre restored the theater's façade to closely resemble its original Myron Hunt design of 1926 when it was the Wilkes Vine Street Theater. Upon completion the theater was renamed after actor Ricardo Montalban, the founder of the Ricardo Montalban Nosotros Foundation which owns and operates the theater. A forgivable loan from the Hollywood Cultural Trust Fund matched other contributions at least one-to-one. Arturo Yanez of Fisher Sehgal Yanez, Inc. was the architect for the renovation.
