Warnors, Fox theatres get national recognition
The Warnors Theatre has been on the radar lately, given its proximity downtown and its role in revitalization. So, it's good news that the theater (and Sally Caglia, whose father bought the theater and adjoining buildings out of auction in 1973) will be honored by the Theatre Historical Society of America, which records and preserves the rich architectural, cultural and social history of America’s theatres.
Caglia is the group's honorary member of the year, a title she will share with her father. He received the award in 1975. It still hangs in the box office at the theatre.
“This venue will be the largest and most palatial theatre we will visit on this year's tour; it is absolutely outstanding how Sally has carried on her father's torch,” said THS Awards Committee chair and Midwest Regional Director, Don Bohatk in a press release. Caglia will be honored during the THS Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony, 7:30 p.m. June 29.
Also being honored is the Humason family, who owns The Fox Theatre in Hanford. They will receive the Creating Theatre History Award for their dedication to ongoing preservation, restoration and operation of that historic theatre. If you haven't been the that theatre, its worth the trip down. Take Amtrak. Diana Krall plays there in August.
