Last night’s ABC TV Agent Carter has scenes filmed in the Los Angeles Theatre, depicting it as a movie theater.

Oh Im sorry I missed it. I’ll have to try and catch it if they ever repeat it.

Lobby, lower lounge & ladies restroom area featured in last night’s ABC TV Castle episode, pretending that this is the Opera House with Rigoletto being the opera. It should be the Opera House!

Beautiful Theatre. AS a former projectionist, I loved the shots of the projection room.

Is this the theatre featured in the Capitol Cities video Safe and Sound?? If it is there is a great shot of the projection room at 1:11 of the video.

Redwards1: the architect is listed in the sidebar at the right of the page. S. Charles Lee designed the Los Angeles Theatre, and Samuel Tilden Norton designed the Fox Building, the office structure fronting on Hill Street at the back of the theater.

Who was the architect of the Los Angeles Theatre?

What a thrill to see this theater highlighted in the Lifetime reality series Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. Great views of the theater, despite the overwrought drama of the show itself. LA theater friends tell me that the show used the theater almost all summer long. BRAVO to Lifetime for using an historic theater as a backdrop for their show!

The theatre was shown in the latest NCIS: Los Angeles episode.

The LOS ANGELES' lobby, the lobby ceiling, chandeliers and candy counter are seen early on in the 1970 Paul Mazursky film ‘Alex in Wonderland’ as part of the storyline. (Later on, there are exterior scenes of the VOGUE and NEW VIEW as well.)

Corey, the link goes to a Fox Theater sign in the Las Vegas boneyard…

A Wurlitzer model 216 organ (2/10) was installed in the Los Angeles Theatre for its opening after being moved from the nearby Tower Theatre. There has been some confusion about this Opus 1620 Wurlitzer since records show it was shipped to the Garrick Theatre on Apr 23, 1927. But the Garrick had already been demolished by then to make way for the Tower, which opened on Oct 27 of that year. Original plans for the Los Angeles called for installation of a larger Wurlitzer, and chamber space was provided to accommodate it, but the owner ran out of funds and was forced to move the organ from the Tower instead.

The organ had been in the Tower for only a couple of years. After its move to the Los Angeles, it was played for only a short time before being allowed to fall into disrepair. It was restored to playing condition in the early ‘60s, and organist Ann Leaf performed to a full house on Aug 23, 1963. She also recorded tracks for an LP on it (Concert Recording #CR-0083). The organ was eventually sold or, as some reports have it, stolen from the Los Angeles. It’s now known to be part of a larger organ that is in private hands.

It’s been there for years. It was placed there so people could see what was playing at the Los Angeles Theatre, when you were standing across the street at the Paramount Theatre. I think that was the second verson of that sign of the years.

Interior spaces of the Los Angeles could be seen in the 100th episode of the Fox TV drama Bones. (It’s called “The Parts in the Sum of the Whole”; it first aired April 8, 2010.)
