Ninety percent of Avalon was owned by the "Santa Catalina Island Company." Dove and quail hunting were discontinued due to a scarcity of these birds.

From page 1 of the museum's new building to evoke Catalina Island's history in some way," said Michael De Marsche, Executive Director of the Catalina Island Museum. "The Ackerman Family Amphitheater is a perfect example of this?' The museum's amphitheater will offer endless entertainment opportunities to the island's grow- ing audience. It will be a new stage for local and visiting musi- cians. A state-of-the-art system will project movies on to a huge screen at the back of the building opposite the amphitheater. Films related to Catalina Island and the museum's special exhibitions, as well as independent and foreign films, will be showcased. "The island's favorable weather will allow us to use the amphi- theater for a variety of events throughout the year," said De Marsche. "Few museums have an outdoor space like this connected to their facility. It is just one more reason the Catalina Island Museum is unique." The construction of the Ada Blanche Wrigley Schreiner Building will expand the present museum's space by over 8,000 square feet. Exhibition space will more than double with spaces dedicated to plein air painting, Catalina Island history and special exhibitions. Amenities in the new building will include a spacious entrance lobby and visitor center, a digital theater, an atrium and sculpture garden, an expansive Above, the original amphtheater and band stand. The Banning brothers built the amphitheater in 1904. Photo courtesy of Catalina Island Museum museum store, and a vault area dedicated to staff offices, storage and research.
