The site's anthropological layers unearth changes each Era has brought to one small Mexican Rancho. In the early 19th Century our focus narrows to an artistic and social mecca -- a single Hacienda built on former Rancho land -- the residence of a series of "Old Hollywood" Legends; designed by John Byers, built in the 1920s by one of Edison’s Three Tenors - Jose Mojica’s Music Salon is the site of our chamber music; the 1930-40's brought the Hacienda Anita Loos' eclectic Santa Monica Canyon Salons; then Lyle Wheeler (David Selznick's Art Director) made the hacienda his home. The over 600 films produced by these three former residents are screened in our 50-seat theater
