After 90 Years, Show Still Goes on at Lompoc Theatre

With fanfare meriting such a milestone, the Lompoc Theatre Project will celebrate the 90th birthday of the Lompoc Theatre on May 27, and the community is invited to raise a glass.

On opening day in May 1927, the local paper called the new theater a “triumph for builders,” and the town threw a party.

From 3 to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 27, the Lompoc Theatre Project will host a similar bash — a free, parking-lot party for all ages. Included will be artists and vendors, a classic car, food trucks, wine and beer sales, a raffle and music.

“We have been looking forward to celebrating this event for a long time,” said Mark Herrier, president of the Lompoc Theatre Project.
“Restoring this theater is the game changer Lompoc really needs. I hope the whole town shows up.”

The event will benefit the Theatre Project’s continuing efforts to repair, restore and reopen the theater as a mult-iuse space for the Lompoc Valley and Central Coast.

Food trucks or purveyors scheduled to sell food at the party include Central Coast Specialty Foods, Wild West Pizza, Dogfathers Hotdogs, and Island Mix.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
