PACIFIC PALISADES (CBSLA) — With Pacific Coast Highway indefinitely closed due to the Woolsey Fire, the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades will stay closed until at least Thanksgiving Day.
Both the villa and the Getty Center, which is located alongside the 405 Freeway in West Los Angeles, are safe from the fire. But with no timeline for reopening evacuation zones in Malibu or PCH, the Getty Villa will stay closed, according to Getty’s Lisa Lapin.READ MORE: `Solidarity' Cited In New Deal For 40k Behind-the-Scenes Film & TV Workers
