Harvey Auditorium (Bakersfield, CA)

Anyway, so I'm wondering if anyone else here has heard stories about the theater or, better yet, had any experiences. It's really a beautiful theater and will work here any chance I get. The kids of Bakersfield High School, where the theater is located, are soooooo lucky!
Oh, forgot to mention that I looked up a little history on the building and they finished construction in 1949 but they had started much earlier and had to stop due to the war. From what I understand it was built as part of Roosevelt's New Deal which built schools all over the country. Also, when I was a kid I worked a lot at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center in San Mateo, California (also on a high school campus) and the layouts and original interior building materials are identical. I'm guessing there are probably more of these theaters out there somewhere.

Perhaps the archives of the local newspaper can shed some light on what happened . . .
