Centennial Salute

Honoring San Diego’s Military at Balboa Theatre

On Friday, March 29, we will “turn back the clock” and honor two important roles Balboa Theatre has played in the last 100 years: a silent movie theatre, and a wartime home for sailors. A screening of the silent film “The Flying Fleet” will be the highlight of an evening celebrating San Diego’s military service members. “The Flying Fleet” marks the first major Hollywood production to film at Naval Air Station North Island, and features an appearance by the USS Langley, the United States’ first aircraft carrier! Theatre organist Ken Double will accompany the 1929 film on our vintage Robert Morton theatre pipe organ, using its various “voices” to enhance the action-packed film.
