The only theatre that had two balconies was the Palace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles.

I agree, it is one fantastic theatre. I think it had two balconies. I guess I can tell this story now, and you all won’t tell – I hope. My Dad worked in the Orpheum Building, which was just south of the theatre. When I would go to visit him, after we had lunch together, I would go to the basement, into the boiler room and go up into the theatre, where I would come out next to the south/east exit door, and I would go to the little front row of seats, and enjoy many a movie. I liked just being in a place with all that history. A fond memory.

On February 15, 1926, this grand theater became home of the fourth and final home of the famed 0rpheum vaudeville circuit here in Los Angeles. Designed by noted theater architect G. Albert Lansburgh. It evokes a French theme with polished brass doors, lush brocade drapery, silk wall panels, marble pilasters, and enormous twin chandeliers all reminiscent of the Paris 0pera.

This is a fabulous theater. It is sad that it does not gain as much attention. There is so much to see in this theater.
