“The policy in place was created by the LA Phil to ensure the safety and security of all of our visitors to the Hollywood Bowl,” said Leni Boorstin, director of community and government affairs for the L.A. Philharmonic. While the land is controlled by the Los Angles County, the LA Phil owns the Hollywood Bowl.
