Mason Opera House

Mason Opera House Mason Opera House

This program from the Mason Opera House for a 1920 performance of “The Mikado” has been listed on EBay, with bids starting at $5.50. The Mason was one of the leading theaters on Broadway. It was demolished in the 1950s to make way for a Cold War monstrosity that was in turn demolished after being damaged in the Northridge earthquake. After several years of being nothing but a big hole in the ground, the site is now undergoing construction for federal courthouse.
