The John Anson Ford Theatres, nestled in the Hollywood Hills, are owned and operated by the County of Los Angeles and located in a county regional park.

The 1241-seat outdoor Ford Amphitheatre is set against a backdrop of cypresses and chaparral. It is relatively intimate: no patron is more than 96 feet away from the stage. Music, dance, film, theatre and family events are presented May to October. The Ford Amphitheatre Season is a program of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.

The 87-seat indoor theatre space, THE FORD is the home of the Ensemble Theatre Collective, known as ETC@ITF, a collaboration of five L.A.-based theatre companies and the Arts Commission supported in part by the Flintridge Foundation.

The Ford Theatre Foundation is a private fundraising organization created to enhance Los Angeles County’s support of the theatres.

In 2000, a $1.6 million renovation of the entryway to the theatres was undertaken. The new entryway features winding paths that create a more gradual climb from the box office, a waterfall, two dozen species of trees and plants and pocket picnic areas. At the top of the entryway is Edison Plaza, a gathering place where patrons can eat, shop and pick up information.

The entryway is the most recent of more than $4.3 million in capital improvements made to the stage, backstage, and public areas of the Ford complex since 1995.
