Historic Hollywood Theatres: an overview

Welcome to Hollywood!

Hollywood starting making sense as a film exhibition area around 1910 with the rapid residential expansion westward and the booming film industry.

It wasn't until 1922 and the opening of  Sid Grauman's first Hollywood theatre, the Egyptian, that Hollywood started to rival downtown as a location for star-studded premieres and first-run exhibition. Grauman's second location, the Chinese, added to the allure of the district and other exhibitors not already represented added to the growing strip of theatres. Thanks to the In Cinerama website of Roland Lataille for the postcard.

Legitimate theatre was also well represented with houses such as the Music Box (now called the Fonda), the Hollywood Playhouse (now the Avalon) and the El Capitan opening as live venues. The last of the Hollywood movie palaces to open, the Pantages, has gone legit -- it's now a Broadway house with its movie days long over.

You can start your Hollywood theatre tour with the alphabetical listings below. Scroll down below that and there's an alternate name directory. Also see the separate Hollywood theatres by address list showing how the buildings are arrayed in the district.

See you at the movies!
