Touring the Los Angeles Theatre

Check out these beautiful photos of the Los Angeles Theatre on Broadway by Curbed LA.

The Los Angeles, built in 1931, was the last of the opulent theaters built in what is now the Broadway Historic Theatre District – the first and largest theater district listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

While most of the theaters aren’t used as regular movie houses or performance venues on a regular basis anymore, you can still experience them through programs like the LA Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats and Walking Tour, and Cinespia.

We haven’t had the opportunity to work on the amazing Los Angeles Theater yet, but we have done work on the Million Dollar Theater on Broadway, Raymond Theater in Pasadena, the Warner Grand in San Pedro.
