The Pellissier Building/Wiltern Theatre

















As with the 1926 El Capitan, Morgan, Walls & Clements again worked with G. Albert Lansburgh on the Wiltern project. MW&C did the extraordinary turquoise terracotta clad Pellissier Building, the theatre was Lansburgh's. The theatre, office tower and adjacent retail wings were all exuberantly art deco. The photo is a 1931 Mott Studios of the opening festivities from the California State Library. See the Wiltern Theatre page for more views inside and out. Once slated for the wrecking ball, this landmark at 3900 Wilshire is now a concert venue and restored office and retail space.
