The Los Angeles Theatre is a 2,000-seat historic movie palace at 615 S. Broadway in the historic Broadway Theater District in Downtown Los Angeles.
This Los Angeles Theatre was constructed in late 1930 and early 1931. With its grand central staircase and gold brocade drapes, it has for many years been considered to be among the city's most lavish landmarks. The opulent interior is said to have been modeled after the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles. A crystal fountain stood at the head of the grand staircase, and a restaurant and a ballroom were on the lower level.
Construction was completed in less than six months and cost $1.5 million. Charlie Chaplin helped fund the completion so that it would be ready to open with the premiere of his film City Lights in January 1931.
After closing its doors to the public in 1994, the Los Angeles has for many years sat vacant, although it can be rented as a venue for special events. The theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Los Angeles is used most often today as a location for filming, and is frequently seen in commercials, television shows, and feature films.This lobby is also used as a filming location for the sequel of Charlie's Angels (Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle), Batman Forever and Chaplin.
