Look who's forty!

The League of Historic American Theatres (LHAT) hosted their 40th Anniversary National Conference in Chicago, IL, this past weekend.


The foundation, created in 1976, is a non-profit dedicated to preserving and sustaining historical American playhouses. Their influence is felt throughout the industry in the United States and Canada.

LHAT connects the major players in the historic theatre world – owners, operators, and vendors – to facilitate communication that addresses the truly unique obstacles associated with modern usage of aging architecture. Topics include renovation, upkeep, and maintaining authenticity.

InterAmerica supports LHAT through Allied Membership and actively contributing to the historic community’s ongoing conversation. We’re proud to say we’ve had a hand in the renovation of LHAT member theatres Cocoa Village Playhouse, in Cocoa, FL, and the Polk Theatre in Lakeland, FL.
