The Mission Revival style Linda Vista Hospital was built on the former site of the Santa Fe Railroad Employees” Hospital in Boyle Heights in 1924 after the 1904 structure was razed. The property was a fully functioning hospital until 1991 when the medical functions ceased and the hospital became a set for numerous Hollywood productions from To Live and Die in LA to Dexter. That and various claims of paranormal events, i.e., ghosts, have not stopped developers from seeking to reestablish the facility as low-income senior housing.
Enter stage left, the Heidi Duckler Dance Theater which will for 5 nights create a multimedia performance that use and incorporates the hospital environs all the way down to the parking lot wall. Along the way, the audience will encounter moving murals inspired by the architecture and history of the facility and East Los Angeles.
This will be the last opportunity for the public to view never before seen part of the hospital before it is renovated into affordable housing.
