Anthony (Antoon) B. Heinsbergen (1894-1981), nationally acclaimed Dutch-born muralist, was born in Holland on December 13, 1894.
Heinsbergen's keen sense of color and vivid palette, along with his innate ability to combine distinctively different architectural vocabularies into a visually cohesive mixed idiom, were handsomely illustrated in the Hotel Tioga.
Heinsbergen assistants, brothers Tom and Frank Bouman, were largely responsible for the final installation of the Tower Theatre murals, and completed painting them at night by fllight to assure that they would achieve the proper fluorescent effects.

 Wiltern Theatre Information
Albert Landsburgh and is renowned for its Art Deco design containing decorative plaster and tile work along with colorful murals painted by Anthony Heinsbergen.
The theater had been poorly maintained - many of the murals and plasterwork were damaged, many of the fixtures had been sold off or pillaged, and portions of the ceiling had crashed onto the ground floor seats.
To restore the theater to its original state required some expert craftsmanship to repair what was there (including A.T. Heinsbergen, the son of the original painter) and some creativity to replace what had been lost (including salvaging vintage Art Deco seats from the soon to be demolished Paramount Theater in Portland, Oregon).

Anthony Heinsbergen, who decked the walls of more than 750 theaters, including Oakland's Paramount, and was once the subject of a touring Smithsonian Institution exhibition, created opulent murals with bare-breasted maidens, some inspired by his wife.
But by the 1970s, the theater was neglected and its style was unappreciated: Art Deco reminded some of the Depression; its big screen showed second-run flicks that few attended.
It was late 1981 or early 1982, she said, and she went to see David Lynch's "The Elephant Man," and was fascinated by Heinsbergen's murals.

It comes complete with a once-spectacular grand ballroom, crying-proof baby rooms whose colorful walls are painted with clowns and animals, sprawling (and working) marble restrooms, a paneled lounge, the shell of a restaurant, and two massive balconies.

 Bancroftiana, Number 116 Spring 2000: Paramount Theatre Archives at The Bancroft Library
From the outset of the project, Peter Botto, hired as General Manager of the newly renamed Paramount Theatre of the Arts, combined superior research and organization skills to assure that the restoration preserved the fine decorative motifs and elements of the original design.
Skidmore, Owings and Merrill were retained for new construction; but the timing was fortuitous, for Timothy Pflueger was still available to advise, and Anthony Heinsbergen, an 81- year-old designer of over 750 movie theater interiors, came out of retirement to help coordinate the restoration of the theater's decorative elements.
Botto balanced the restoration with adaptation of the Paramount for its new multiple purposes, providing a fully equipped, modern edifice with a seating capacity for 3,000, with virtually all of the original design elements either cleaned, restored, or replaced with authentic recreations of the original materials such as the carpeting and upholstery.
