West Broadway businesses support the Coalition’s plan


The Save the Hollywood Theatre Coalition has recently reached out to the West Broadway business community to establish the extent of support for our plan to Reinvent the Hollywood as a landmark public arts and culture venue.  Not surprisingly, the response has been enthusiastic – to say the least – with nearly 125 businesses (and more to come) signing our letter to City’s Managing Director of Cultural Services, Richard Neuwirth.

The letter recognizes the Hollywood’s unique value as a landmark focus of arts and entertainment on West Broadway and an essential contributor to the local economy.

The Coalition is very pleased to acknowledge the strong support of following businesses (with more to come) and encourage our broader community of supporters to return the favour! Just like the Hollywood, local businesses are a key ingredient of a vibrant and thriving community.

  1. Didn’t notice Kidsbooks in the list of businesses supporting a revitalized Hollywood Theatre. Surprising as they hosted many events there. A “new” Hollywood would bring back more life to West Kits/Broadway.


      1. Alison, I checked with our volunteer who was walking West Broadway with the letter. He think it likely that Kidsbooks isn’t listed because owner/management was not on the premises at the time and staff did not have authority to sign.

        In any event, we obviously welcome support from all West Broadway businesses. We also plan to stop by Kidsbooks again soon to hopefully add them to the list.

        Thanks for your comment and your support!
