For those who bemoan the demise of a time when going to a show meant seeing a stage act like Martin and Lewis and a movie, welcome to the Salon of the Theatres. Tucked away among galleries and artist studios in Santa Ana's historic Santora Building of the Arts, the Salon is a passionate expression of its creator, Joseph J. Musil, who was born in 1937 but laments he was not around in the 1920s. "Theaters were so inspiring then," the 68-year-old said.

Theater designer Joseph Musil is used to strangers knocking on his door. When they look through the window of his studio in the Santora Building--the historic downtown Santa Ana office complex on Broadway that has been transformed into a warren of artists' studios and galleries--few can resist asking to take a closer look. But the view through the window--of lavish, scale-model copies of 19th century European toy theaters--provides only an inkling of Musil's domain.

Joseph Musil of Santa Ana will never forget the day his grandmother took him to the Strand Theatre in Long Beach. The year was 1941 and he was only 4. Back then, movies were screened with live musical fanfare and lights that changed colors as they shined on the curtain. That trip to the movies turned out to be a defining moment in Musil's life. Now he's a theater designer creating his own glamour and glitz.
