Ford Revving For Reopening

The John Anson Ford Amphitheatre is set to reopen July 8 after undergoing structural and aesthetic renovations that began in 2014.


Some of the changes for the theatre include a terrace with concessions and seating, a new parking structure and improvements to the stage and infrastructure. The 1,180-capacity amphitheater, which is a short trip across the 101 freeway from The Hollywood Bowl, hosts dance, music, film and theatre events seasonally.

The venue, formerly known as the Pilgrimage Theatre, is approaching the anniversary of its first 100 years of existence, and will host Aloe Blacc, Lila Downs and Colbie Caillat in the coming months.
