Free Admission Thursday at Museum of Latin American Art - see INFO below. MOLAA has doubled its size and added a 15,000 sq. ft. sculpture garden. Its permanent collection now numbers over 1,600 works of art. The Museum is located in the citys rapidly developing East Village Arts District. Between 1913 and 1918 the site that the Museum now occupies was home to the Balboa Amusement Producing Company, then the Worlds most productive and innovative silent film studio. Before there was a Hollywood, Balboa was the king of the silver screen, producing as much as 20,000 feet of negative film a week. The building that was renovated and became MOLAAs Balboa Events Center may have been part of the old Balboa film studios. MOLAAs exhibition galleries, administrative offices and store are housed in what was once a roller skating rink known as the Hippodrome. Built in the late 1920s, after the film studios were gone, the Hippodrome was a haven for skaters for four decades. The building then served as a senior health center for fifteen years. The high vaulted ceilings and beautiful wooden floors were perfectly suited for the Hippodrome's final metamorphosis into the Museum of Latin American Art
