Gone With The Film Festival

Last year's screenings were held at the Historic Fillmore Towne Theatre. The theatre was constructed of reinforced brick in 1918 (sic). The single-screen theatre was used to show silent movies and the stage area was used for vaudeville. Mary Pickford performed here.
Towne Theatre
Today, Fillmore exists as a very relaxed area with a small-town atmosphere increasingly rare, located in California's beautiful Heritage Valley. It has a classic "turn of the century" downtown architecture, one-screen theatre, thriving historic train depot, -a much photographed city hall, and many unique shops and businesses.


This year's festival will be held in yet another classic venue in closer proximity to the heart of Hollywood.....
Barnsdall Gallery Theatre
The Barnsdall Gallery Theatre (BGT) is owned and operated by the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affair’s Community Arts Division. The BGT is located at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard, atop Olive Hill in Hollywood in the Barnsdall Art Park complex. The 11-acre park is also home to the Municipal Art Gallery, a Junior Arts Center and the Hollyhock House designed by the renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Park's History
Located at the crest of Olive Hill overlooking the city of Los Angeles, Barnsdall Art Park had its beginning in the early 1900's when Aline Barnsdall came West with plans to develop a theatre company. When Aline Barnsdall donated the Park and its Frank Lloyd Wright designed structures to the City of Los Angeles in 1927, she wished to provide an accessible arts center, incorporating and preserving the famous Hollyhock House as a vital component. The spirit of Barnsdall's intention was to maintain an active arts center for the community was assured longevity.
