Thaddeus Smith

Thaddeus Smith Board President Owner/Operator The Music Box Theatre & Hollywood Entertainment District
From his young adult life as an entrepreneur in Tampa, FL, to his current high profile status as a Hollywood mover and shaker, Thaddeus Hunter Smith is the perfect example of a true visionary and Renaissance man. Following his years as one of LA's top event planners and caterers, he also created and owned the award winning Blue Palms Restaurant on La Cienega, which he eventually brought to the Music Box Theater. Thaddeus took his artistic energy and creativity to the next level when he invested in the Music Box Theater, in Hollywood, where he has been creating some of the most exciting special events and concerts in the Southern California area.
Not only is Thaddeus Smith committed to his work at the Music Box Theater, he is also devoted to the Hollywood Community as well. Smith has demonstrated that business and members of the community can work together to revitalize the district. In order to create changes, Thaddeus Smith is the President of the Hollywood Entertainment District (BID) and is the Vice President of the Hollywood Police Activities League (PAL). He also sits on the Keep LA Beautiful Board, Hollywood Security Committee, and is on the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors just to name a few. He is heavily involved with the L.A. Fire Department, Hollywood Central Park Board of Directors, 825 Gallery, and the new Westlake Theater Board in Mac Arthur Park.
Being a bit of a Renaissance man, Thaddeus Smith doesn't limit himself to just entrepreneurship and community relations. He has also proven himself to be a writer, musician, producer, and artist. Smith's artwork has been featured in local and regional galleries throughout California. He has sold over 50 pieces of artwork a year of which all profits go to his favorite charity.
Thad's lifelong philosophy, 'You must become the change you wish to see," has served him well since locating to Hollywood. He is making his visionary hopes and dreams become a reality as the Music Box Theater is just one of the many projects he's working on in order to bring about a true Renaissance in Hollywood. It's hard not to be inspired when you talk to Thaddeus Hunter Smith about all his visions.

Thaddeus is the owner and operator of the famous Music Box Theatre. He is an accomplished entrepreneur, musician, producer, and artist. Thad's lifelong philosophy is Gandhi's adage that "you must become the change you wish to see. He is completing his second year as the President of the Board for the Hollywood Property Owners Alliance, which manages the Hollywood Entertainment District Business Improvement District (BID). He is the President of the Hollywood Entertainment District and the Vice President of the Hollywood Police Activities League (PAL). Thad also sits on the Keep LA Beautiful Board, Hollywood Security Committee, and is on the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

Thaddeus concurs that the term of the chair should be two years in order to provide continuity of leadership and programming. Active Board involvement is also critical to the success of an organization, and Thad promotes that by conducting "themed meetings" with a caterer and bar to keep members interested and committed. The goal is to build friendships so Board members enjoy each other's company and work and have fun together. Thad also believes in designing Board meetings and activities that take Board members into the community to experience first-hand its diversity and richness. Thad brought a pitcher of Mimosas to the panel discussion to enhance the ambience and make the point that work can also be fun! Point made!
