Caliente Racetrack Mural

Caliente Racetrack MuralAdding to the significance of the endangered California Theatre is the iconic 1960s Caliente Racetrack Mural on its back wall, which was nearly painted over with a beer advertisement recently when its individual significance in the history of the San Diego and Tijuana Region failed to be considered. The near loss of the Caliente sign brought forth a new generation of preservationists and a new demographic: the avant-garde artist community. Now the sign will be considered for designation in its own right and this added layer of historicity may help to save the remarkable historic theatre.
