La Mesa Historical Society Honors 100th Anniversary of Flying A Movie Studio



(La Mesa, California) – Hollywood’s long-forgotten roots in La Mesa will be commemorated on the 100th anniversary of San Diego County’s first movie studio with two events honoring the Flying A Movie Company studios, hosted by the La Mesa Historical Society.

The dedication will be held outside the historic home of the Flying A Studio on La Mesa Boulevard (across from Third). The date coincides with the 100th anniversary of the day the Flying A Movie Studio opened its doors in La Mesa on August 12, 1911.
