Old Town Music Hall has been entertaining Los Angeles residents and visitors for 52 years! The theater was built in 1921 as a silent movie house, and then in 1968 two local musicians, Bill Field and Bill Coffman (the "Two Bills") installed a spectacular 1925 Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ and re-opened the theater as Old Town Music Hall.
MOVIES AND MUSIC:
Today, Old Town Music Hall is a non-profit organization celebrating classic film and music, offering weekly classic movies and concerts, including many silent films accompanied live on the pipe organ. And after 52 years, Bill Field still oversee the day to day operations.**
WE NEED YOUR HELP:
Earlier this year we were planning a GoFundMe campaign to address necessary maintenance, but then due to the Covid pandemic, the theater had to temporarily close. Now our financial needs have shifted. In addition to the maintenance, we need funds to stay afloat during the closure.
We know times are tough right now, but with your support we can achieve our goal and save Old Town Music Hall for future generations.
Contributions ARE tax-dedictible. Old Town Music Hall is a California 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our much-needed repairs include:
