Rick Van Bogart, San Clemente
It’s true the Miramar Theater and Bowling Alley are in dire need of restoration. I have been working on an answer for three years now, and I think I have a plan that the city, the owners, the San Clemente Historical Society and everyone I have spoken with is excited about, and something may be happening soon.
I am the president of the newly established Miramar Theater Restoration Association. I lived in San Clemente in the 1970s before going to work for the Los Angeles Times. In 1992 my Father bought a home in the Vilamora tract in Rancho San Clemente. I’ve always loved it here and just had to get involved. I have a plan that is being reviewed by the city planner today and a sketch of the proposed project provided by the architect.
Hopefully we will have set of plans soon.
I want to thank the generous sponsors that came through with flying colors without advanced notice, Selma’s Pizza, SC Antiques & Decor, San Clemente Wine Co, Beach Fire, 5 Elements, Perfect 10, Poke Roll 808, Salon Incognito, Reclamation, Sonny’s Pizza, Billy’s Meat Market. All gave gifts for the Miramar Theater Fundraiser Raffle. Thank You
With little advanced the turnout was small but enthusiastic. Only three gifts were raffled, the rest are saved for the October17 fundraiser.
