New Name For Wilshire Theatre

The Wilshire Theatre Beverly Hills in California has been renamed after a $5 million donation from philanthropists Cheryl and Haim Saban.

The Beverly Hills Performing Arts Center announced the name change to the Saban Theatre March 6. The 1,900-capacity theatre is being restored and the gift is expected to continue restoration of the building’s interior and marquee.

The theatre currently houses the Young Musicians foundation.
