The Ambassador Theatre

The Ambassador Theatre, as well as the rest of the Ambassador Hotel at 3400 Wilshire Blvd., was a design of prominent architect Myron Hunt. The theatre opened in 1921 and was still running films occasionally into the 50s. The photo is from the collection of the Los Angeles Public Library.  See our page on the Ambassador for more about the theatre.
