Highland Theater sign lights up North Figueroa Street

There is a lot of context behind this sign re-lighting, but I am tired and the ‘splaining can be done by others on local blogs.

We went to the Old LA Farmer’s Market on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 to buy a bunch of fruit and vegetables and bumped into a sign re-lighting ceremony. Co-owner of the shop, Adam Bray-Ali, was there with the whole family to celebrate the moment. One of Adam’s other ventures, a property management business called Arroyo Apartments, paid for the “A” in “THEATER” to be relit.

The sign got turned on at 8pm – with the Franklin High marching band and a big crowd of now-familiar local business owners, community activists, political types, just plain folk, and e’rbody else. Free cake at the end of the ceremony!

A bunch of other local groups and businesses ponied up the cash to pay for the rest of the letters. Along with Chicken Boy, this corner now has a phone booth converted into a free library, knitted tree cozies, and a lit up historic theater sign. Things are on the mend in the big city, and definitely looking brighter in Highland Park.
