Fixin' the Morgan-Wixson - Part Deux
Our beloved Morgan-Wixson Theatre on Pico Boulevard was completed in 1966. As happens when the years pass, it is showing its age. We try and keep our repair bills to a minimum, but with recent major plumbing repairs, the need for roof repairs, rain damage to the booth, other minor needs that have popped up, and trying to recover from the pandemic, we need help.

We're reaching out to our fans and theatre family to ask that you help us with our goal of Fixin' the Morgan- Wixson. All amounts are welcomed and appreciated.
