This theatre opened as the Warner Bros. WESTERN theatre. The theatre is located at the corner of Western and Wilshire Blvd. (Wiltern). An Art Deco delight. The organ in the Wiltern came from another local Warner House just south of it on Pico Blvd. (The Forum theatre). The last chain to operate the Wiltern was Pacific Theatres. Just before this was to close, Pacific removed the organ and placed it in storage (as of the mid 80’s).

Nice Web Site. I’ve been in most of the great L.A. theaters that you have listed here. Seeking some information about Wiltern is what brought me to your site.

BTW – the Wiltern seats 2,200, balcony included and, to my knowledge, it still has its Wurlitzer pipe organ. The organ was restored by the American Theater Organ Society (ATOS) years ago. My father used to take me to ATOS concerts at the Wiltern.

If I can be of any help (photos, info, etc.) for your web site, please let me know.
