OLD TOWN MUSIC HALL SEATING

Old Town Music Hall is a treasured cultural landmark located in El Segundo, California, not far from LAX.

Since 1968, Old Town Music Hall has been showing vintage silent and sound films, and presenting live concerts by some of the world's finest performers of jazz, ragtime, and popular music from the past.

Silent films are accompanied by the Mighty Wurlitzer, a 1925 pipe organ that has been meticulously preserved so that silent classics can be experienced with live musical accompaniment, just as they did when they were first shown. It's something you really have to see and hear to believe.

Old Town Music Hall is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

History

Established in 1968.

Old Town Music Hall began in the 1960's when two musicians, Bill Coffman and Bill Field, purchased the Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ from the Fox West Theater in Long Beach, CA, and installed it in the quaint 188-seat El Segundo State Theater, originally built in 1921.

The "Two Bills" opened their doors in 1968, and to this day the Old Town Music Hall continues to entertain audiences with silent and sound films, as well as ragtime, jazz and pipe organ concerts. All silent feature films are accompanied live by the Mighty Wurlitzer, just as they were when originally released.
