In the early 1900s, lavish theatres and movie palaces began popping up across Los Angeles. Though a large number of them have been transformed, altered or razed over the years, the city’s landscape is still dotted with several of the historic venues, many of which remain in operation and in pristine condition. While the opulent sites are not all open to the public on a daily basis, they can be viewed a number of ways, including by attending a show on-site, via the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Broadway Historic Theatre and Commercial District Walking Tour, and through the Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats film series program. Because the theatres are regularly used for filming, you can also catch a glimpse of them onscreen. Read on for a list of ten historic venues and the productions they have appeared in.
