About Us

The Ford Theatre Foundation was created in 1994 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and, in 1995, was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting performing arts programming at the historic John Anson Ford Theatres complex located in Hollywood's Cahuenga Pass. The complex, whose origins date back to the original Pilgrimage Theatre structure built in 1920, today is part of a 45-acre county regional park and includes the 1,245 seat open air Ford Amphitheatre, 87-seat indoor theater, [Inside] the Ford, and a new plaza, entranceway garden, and picnicking area. Working closely with the Los Angeles Arts Commission (which has led revitalization of the facility by providing operational oversight and programming since 1993) and the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Ford Theatre Foundation provides a gateway for the people of Los Angeles County to discover and appreciate cultures of their region and the world.
