Call in Thursday morning in support of the Complex!
Hello friends of the Complex!
Read on for information from our friends at the Los Angeles Conservancy on how we can support the Complex as it faces designation as a Historic-Cultural Monument.
HCM status does not guarantee that the building will be a theater in the future. That is a separate negotiation with the building’s new owner that the Conservancy, Complex advocates and other partners are in conversation with.
Want to know the full scoop? Here is a PDF with the full letter, and details on how to get involved in the HCM vote.
Below is a summarization of this call to action:
On Thursday, August 17th at 10am PT, the Cultural Heritage Commission will vote whether to designate the Complex as a Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM). Please read to learn how to advocate at the Cultural Heritage Commission:
What does HCM status mean?
HCM Status would recognize the Complex’s contributions to the historic Hollywood Theatre Row and make it harder to demolish the building. Designation can help raise awareness about Theatre Row and the importance of preserving small theatres.
How can I support the Complex HCM nomination?
Make public comment via Zoom or in person, or email a letter to [email protected]. Public comment is limited to 1-2 minutes. In your comment, state your name, relationship to the Complex, why it is important to you and why it is a historic part of Hollywood Theatre Row. The Complex’s future use is not a consideration at this hearing and may detract from your comment.
Will the Complex continue to be a theater?
HCM status does not guarantee that the building will be a theater in the future. That is a separate negotiation that has started. There will be updates on how to support that effort as they develop.
