The downtown theatres range from some of the most opulent Los Angeles movie palaces to tiny grindhouses. It's a fun tour. The photo here is a detail from the facade of the Mayan Theatre -- click to enlarge.
We also have street-by-street tours of theatres both existing and vanished on Broadway, Main Street, Hill Street and more. These pages organize the listings by address. Plus there's an alphabetical directory listing all the various names various downtown Los Angeles theaters have operated under.
