A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater?s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
Broadway Theatricals' aim is to bring the scale and professionalism of the Great White Way to the Southern California community via hard-hitting musical numbers and incredibly elaborate production designs.

Numerous professional actors and musicians have passed through the sets of the company’s trademark crowd-pleasers since the company's 2011 inception.
Staples of the Southern California community since 1978, the artisans at Arrowhead Camur Stained Glass have dedicated themselves to beautifying rooms by designing, creating, and installing custom stained-glass pieces.

Additionally, the staff helps hobbyists create their own pieces by selling the necessary tools and supplies and leading introductory classes for beginners seeking hands-on experience.

The clatter of toppling pins resounds through the walls of the 89 locations of Bowling Centers of Southern California, which are scattered across Southern California, Nevada, and Hawaii. Each alley abounds with modern lanes and equipment, and many boast concession stands, lounges, and game rooms. The family-friendly centers host regular public bowling sessions and league tournaments. Many of the centers also host private birthday parties, which science has proven to be more fun than birthday parties covered by the paparazzi.
