Welcome to the Susan and Gary Martin Screening Room
You Can Have the Best Seat in the Home

Long time Sony Pictures production exec Gary Martin and wife Susan announced a generous gift to MPTF in support of the refurbishing of the Louis B. Mayer Memorial Theatre Complex at the Fund’s Woodland Hills campus. To recognize the Martin’s gift, MPTF has renamed the 200-seat auditorium the Susan and Gary Martin Screening Room.

This ambitious theatre renovation project, made possible thanks to the generosity of a number of donors, resulted in new:

  • theatre seats
  • carpeting
  • digital cinema projector
  • sound system
  • lighting
  • re-designed stage
  • ADA compliant handicap seating

Please join Gary, Susan and other MPTF supporters and make a difference by sponsoring a resident’s seat with your donation of $2,500.

Residents come from all areas of the campus via wheelchair, scooter, or just plain walking to the first-run films shown in the theater, a beloved amenity unique to MPTF and this industry.
