            from Holly Theatre Added 857 0 0

            The Holly Theatre in downtown Medford is a grand 1930 movie palace. Boarded up since 1986, the theater is being restored to its original opening day splendor to serve as a concert venue and performing arts center. Independent studies have shown a need in downtown Medford for entertainment and music venue space of more than double the current venue space in downtown Medford. The Holly will elegantly fill that need. As the largest indoor venue in the region, the Holly Theatre can host events and artists that aren't economically viable anywhere else the region.

                    • Esotouric Visits The Tamale


                      from Kim Cooper Added 145 0 0

                      In this video for the One Day in LA project, historian and tour guide Richard Schave (Esotouric) visits East Los Angeles to draw attention to the fact that there is presently no historic preservation ordinance in unincorporated Los Angeles County. Without such an ordinance, there is no way to protect and preserve landmarks like The Tamale, a 1920s-era programmatic Mexican restaurant shaped like a giant tamale. The Tamale was recently listed for sale as a tear-down, sparking significant community concern. Richard suggests to viewers that they find the unique and meaningful structures in their communities, learn about them, share them through social media and help protect them from the bulldozers that are tearing down bits of historic Los Angeles every day.
