Designed by noted theatre architect L.A. Smith in 1924, before his untimely death in 1926. The Highland Theatre was opened on March 5, 1925. This historic theater has been triplexed in recent years.
The Highland Theatre was once the entertainment hot spot of the Highland Park district, but it, like the area, has seen difficult times over the years. The theater has continued to hold on, despite its proximity to downtown, and the tumult of time that seems to affect Los Angeles more than any other metropolis.
After 75 years, the Highland Theatre is largely forgotten beyond its neighborhood, but it is still a classic Cinema Treasure and one of the few remaining L.A. Smith designed theaters. The Highland Theatre now benefits by being just around the corner from the recently opened Highland Park station on the Metro Gold Line.
